Well here is the final post on these cabinets… I shared with you part of my process in post 1 and how we added molding and feet in post 2, but now they are finally complete and I can share with you the final results!
Just to refresh your memory this is what we started with…
And we ended up with these!!!
Super smooth paint finish, using Benjamin Moore’s White Dove paint color and spraying the door and drawer fronts.
I replaced the hideous patterned glass in the doors with custom cut mirrors. I love how mush light they reflect back into the kitchen! They cost $50 for both and I installed them the same way the original glass was installed.
The additional molding added just enough detail on the sides.
I couldn’t be happier with the hardware I chose. They are graphite in color, even though they look a little ORB in the pictures, they truly are more like a very dark grey finish in person.
They are a tad difficult to install because the back plates are actually separate from the handle, but I’m digging the more industrial vibe and how the color picks up on the color in the granite. If you’re interested in them you can find them here.
This crisp, clean, modernized feel of the cabinets really updates the look of the whole space so now I’m excited to get the rest of the kitchen cabinets done!‘
This project took W-A-Y longer than it should have, but most of that was my “fault” as I was in no hurry to make it a priority. I also made very sure to allow the appropriate amount of time between paint coats. I really hate painting cabinets, but I would do it again and again because I know how much I love the final results! To do it right takes time and patience, but when done correctly the paint job should last for a very long time.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Your cupboards look beautiful and the clear glass in the doors and the new handles look superb 🙂
Thanks so much Denise! I just love looking at them when I walk by them now!
How did you spray your cabinets and not get paint everywhere? They look great!
Hey Bridget! Thanks so much! But I hand painted (roller and brush) the cabinet cases and took the fronts in the garage to spray paint. You see so little of the cases once the doors are up…
Holy smokes Susan! I have butler pantry envy! You did an amazing job…it looks so beautiful!!
Aww, thanks so much Andi!
Which Benjamin Moore product did you use?
The Advance line of paint in Satin finish.
