****update For Tuesday**** So glad that yall came back! I did find my knobs and even put them on. I wanted to have pictures taken and posted first thing for yall. Well.... With that storm it's been cloudy here and my pictures are way too dark. I will try again later... Sorry..Come on out sunshine, where are you. I need to take some pictures ! *********************
Hey ya'll. I'm so exicted to share this post with all of you! Remember during the tour I showed yall this guest bathroom?
I showed you these cabinets that I had painted and glazed. So many of you asked how I did it... Well I thought I would just do a small project to give you a few pointers. Please note that I am by far not a professional and Im almost certain I did it the wrong way... but it worked for me, smile...
I thought I would start on something easy...nahhhh lets go BIG..lets do my kitchen!
I have been going back in forth in my mind..black vs antique white with a glaze...
So I went shopping and bought me two of these fancy things.. I saved big time by not buying wood...
Got some paint and primer
A little bottle of glaze
These wipes are new to me... they are kinda sticky. You just wipe up your dust after sanding.. neat!
sand paper...a must have! Now that you ran out and got all of that stuff... Sand, sand,sand...when you think you have sanded enough...trust me... sand somemore!
I wiped everything down with a damp cloth first then came back with that sticky wipe cloth. Now you are ready to prime...
I let mine dry overnight. Usually I rush to paint but it was like midnight so I thought I should take a small break. I got up and started to paint!
You must wait until your paint is dry... When its dry then you will be able to start on your glaze. I used a small brush to get into the cracks.
There is no right or wrong way to do this. With the glaze that I used they said I would have about 15 minutes of play time... Not really... it drys pretty fast
When you think you have enough... wipe it off...
You can always add more
I found that I needed a damp rag as well.
My little secret to share with all of you...a toothpick! This helps for a few days just till it gets good and dry.
Here is a sneak peek... Im off shopping for those perfect knobs... Hopefully I will find them and then I can show all of you the before and after!
