Painted and Glazed Kitchen Cabinets

Kitchen Cabinets after I sanded, primed, painted two coats of Benjamin Moore Maritime and a coat of Ralph Lauren Smoke Glaze, then two coats of Polycrylic.
The entire process took over a week to accomplish because of drying time and time needed to do other things on my to-do list. Before I got finished the kids were out on Spring Break and I definitely didn't have to time to finish then!

Kitchen Cabinets Before Photo

It is hard to tell in this photo, but last year I replaced all of the hardware with some that I found on Ebay for around $1.50 a piece. Just changing the pulls added a lot, but I was never happy with the color of these cabinets so I was so glad to finally get this checked off of my to-do list!

Ever since we bought our house a little over 10 years ago I have wanted to paint our kitchen cabinets. We had to move within two weeks of selling our old house and didn't have time to build or find a house that was being built therefore be able to pick out fixtures, cabinets, paint colors, etc. so finally after getting all 4 of my children in school every day and having some vacation time from work I was finally able to complete the project that I had wanted to tackle for so long. I love the outcome and hope you will too! Take a look. Who knows what I will end up painting next, probably the counter tops since they now look like they have a pinkish tint to them since I painted the cabinets. It is always something and I wouldn't know what to do anyway if I didn't have at least 5 0r 6 projects going at a time anyway:)
