My Christmas present

For Christmas this year I asked for pulls and hinges for our kitchen cabinets, and paint!  Then, I used Christmas break to paint them!

Here are some BEFORE pictures:

the old pulls

the old hinges .....the previous owner didn't take them off when he primed and painted the cabinets, so they looked pretty messy!

Summer helped me mark the cabinets with numbered post-its before we took them all off to paint them, so that we would know which doors went where!
The new color of the cabinets is called "Teddy Bear Tan".  It is a light caramel color.  The new pulls and hinges are brushed bronze.
 Here are the "after" pictures.

Just for fun, I went back and found the pictures we took of our kitchen when we were looking at our house before we moved in.  Then I took 3 pictures from the same angles.  It is fun to see the difference from our three projects: building the island, redoing the floor, and painting the cabinets.

I had the blessing of seeing the "new" kitchen in person yesterday! Wow, I was blown away. I knew I would like it, but I totally LOVED it. The caramel color is so warm, clean and it brightens the room. The new hardware really pops! Truly a remarkable makeover. And, I hear a few more smaller changes are in the works. :) I'm so proud of you, Kelly!!

Looks SO good Kelly! I'm impressed!

Summer must have done a great job helping put on the post-it notes...all the cabients appear to be in the right places ;)
