My Progress On My Cabinets.

Pic for Body of Blog3

Hi y’all!  Today I’m linking with Stop by Susan’s lovely blog and check what everyone else is showing off for Met Monday. :)

I just want to show you the progress so far on what I’m doing to my kitchen cabinets.  First my hubby added a little bit of trim to the cabinets because I thought they looked a little boring.  This is a before.  Before even the counter top was installed. 


And this is what I’m doing now.  I added a glaze that is ready mixed to the trim.   These are the first two doors I’ve done so far.  I love it!  Oh! Can you see the beadboard wallpaper?  I need to paint it still.  I also need to add another coat on the wall.  For the cabinets I used antique white and the walls are cottage white. IMG_4241

Here is a close-up of the glaze.  IMG_4248

This is the product I used.  It is Valspar Translucent Color Glaze. (from Lowes)  I used a small brush to brush on the glaze and then wiped off the glaze with a dry rag.  I also used a wet rag to wipe if I had too much glaze on.  Glaze is very easy to work with.  If you make a mistake, you can easily wipe it off with a wet rag.    Oops!  Like my purse?  hee heeIMG_4214

I’ll definitely update y’all when I finish my kitchen.  I was so excited about this product that I had to show you all now.  lol

Happy Monday Sandra!
OMG I am so loving these cabinets. They are going to look beautiful. I really like the antique look with the glaze. What a difference a little trim and glaze can make hu? Love it. The backsplash of the beadbord is so beautiful. What color are you going to paint it? I can't wait to see it all finished. You'll have to pop over and see my finished project. I love it. See ya soon. Country hugs, Sherry
