My new kitchen...


Remember that orange kitchen...Goodbye ole cabinets...

Hello Darling! I am in love with my new kitchen...

Old ugly light..

Still ugly just not as bright... will get new lights one day. Marc and I made a plan to only spend cash. No charging for us. So thats where the painted cabinets came from. Make due till you get the cash.

I dreamed over all of those fancy kitchens with the pretty things. I bought two of these and added them. I think they are called corbels..Not sure of the spelling. Boy did they make a difference!

I want to add a few more details like this... Just a few more tassel sales away, smile!

As you can see my white stove etc. kinda stands out. Thats ok cause we will be changing those out one day too. Many more tassel sales away, more smiles...

Still lovin' them!

I know how much knobs cost because I paid a pretty penny just a year ago on new knobs for this same room. They were silver and just didnt work for this new look. Anyone want to buy some very nice , heavy knobs... just let me know.

thanks for your sweet prayers for Jesse. No strep... just fever. They put him on anti. and drew some blood. Will get those results back in the morning. Please keep him in your prayers...

  2. First let me say that I hope your kiddo gets better soon. I HATE when I can't make mine feel better!

    LOVE the cabinets! Love, love LOVE them! I am now seriously considering the same thing. You did a fantabulous job.

  3. Your kitchen looks GREAT! HOW did you manage to do the cabinets so quickly and not complain about painting them even once?? :o)

    I'm glad to hear your son doesn't have anything TOO serious!

  4. I think your cabinets are fabulous! My cabinets are now white but I'm kind of thinking they need a little of the "Susie" touch.

  5. This is so beautiful! I did the same thing to my ugly flourescent light box. I am going to glaze the white that I painted it to give it character (a girl can hope, can't she) If you ever want to make glass front cabinets we did the ones over the bar in our Florida home. My husband cut out the door part inside the raised panel and we had a piece of glass cut to fit the opening. It was around $5 a door. It looks so good and I bet you find yourself going to stand and look at it. Oh come on, I know I am not the only one!

  8. It looks FABULOUS!!! Now seriously, how long did it take you to do all that painting in the kitchen??? LOVE that....now I am seriously thinking.........

    I hope the anti. kicks in quickly and he makes a speedy recovery. Usually when my kiddo gets on an anti. you can't even tell she is sick after the first couple of doses....we will hope that is the case with him. :)

  9. I am in LOVE with your kitchen! It looks AMAZING... I am almost {I said, almost} tempted to start my laundry room cabinets...
    I hope your son feels better QUICKLY! ~Jen

  10. Susie, I adore this kitchen and the CORBELS make such a big difference...here we go again, where did you buy them? lol ;)

    That was smart to paint the flourescent box...I have one of those ugly things, too...no one is allowed to turn it on...lol...I hate it that much, I hate the humming, I hate the glow of the thing, just hate those lights...and I was going to replace it with a chandelier, but heck, if I have lived without a light there (essentially since we don't use it) for 5 years, I am guessing I can go longer...we'll see what the budget is when we get to the kitchen...

    I sure hope your son is feeling better very soon, it is so sad when our babies are sick, no matter how old they are!

    Take good care,
    Bella :)

  11. Nice job on your kitchen. Wow, you did it so fast. I've been lurking for awhile and really enjoy your blog.

    Do you mind telling me the color of your kitchen walls? They look gray and I'm looking for a good gray. Of course colors look so different in pictures, so it might not be gray at all. : )

  12. I love the new look! I am about to undertake a similar project so your transformation is wonderful to see.

    I also wanted to say that the autumn tassels are so beautiful! Do you ever make mini-tassles? I would love to have some to hang on my chandelier...

  13. BEAUTIFUL!! Would love to know the paint color on the walls, I am working on a office and LOVE the color!

  14. Susie it looks fantastic...and I love the corbels! Can you post the steps you took to do that? Pretty please!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Oops, I just scrolled down and saw all your instructions. That sanding scares me. And did you paint the inside of the cabinets?

    ReplyDelete
  16. You did a beautiful job!

  17. Susie, it looks fantastic! I know you are in love with it. I menioned I did a kitchen redo 6 years ago & I was in love with my kitchen too. In fact, I'm gonna do a post on it next week, I think. There's a lot of work that goes into one of these, so I know how hard it was to paint & glaze. I would highly recommend painting that old oak to anyone. You just can't beat the lighter look. I added corbels when I did my old kitchen too & it's a world of difference.

    Good for you on paying cash as you go! That's the only way to do it.

    You are a genius!

  19. Hi guys... The paint color is svelte sage. It's been in my kitchen for about 5 years and I still love it! No I didnt paint the inside of my cabinets. Just too lazy, smile! As for the corbels we glued them on. Easy as pie!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh, it's beautiful! I just posted about my kitchen re-do today too! I like the corbels--what a great touch!

  27. Great job on the cabinets. I know what you mean about only using cash that is the way to go. Our big upcoming remodeling project starts tomorrow... a new roof, not the most fun project but totally necessary. Glad that boy is on the mend. Have a great weekend!

  34. You and your kitchen are wonderful!!!
    I can't believe you finished the job so quickly. It took me forever to paint my cabinets. By the time I did the cleaning, sanding, cleaning, priming, painting, glazing, and two coats of poly, I was SICK of touching those cabinets!

  35. Loving the new kitchen, go tassles!!! Hope you baby is feeling better, I hate it when they are sick. Rachaelxo

  39. Susie,
    Your kitchen makeover is gorgeous. I love the way your cabinets look. Seriously, how long did this take you? One of my friends did hers and it took her months to get it all done. But, she took all the cabinets off, etc. I just hate the thought of getting started and then having it drag on and on. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful talent with us!
    Blessings,
    Tonya

  43. Wow--what a beautiful job you did on your kitchen! White or creamy-toned kitchens are my favorite--they are so clean and fresh, yet calming at the same time. I did a similar look with my new kitchen!

  47. Hi Susie,
    The kitchen looks wonderful, you must be pinching yourself every time you walk in there. It's a dream come true.

  50. Susie, I just adore your kitchen. What a difference the white cabinets make and those corbells - they look so elegant!! We've been trying to do remodeling and some updating and are taking the same road as you - cash! It feels so much better knowing you don't "owe" for things. Again, love your kitchen. Oh, just to ask - how long did it take to paint all these cabinets?
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  52. It looks great...those are corbels...we did the same thing...when I post my kitchen I'll let you know..in fact that's what I'm waiting on...the corbels have tape all over them holding them up to dry above the sink...there was no way to put a screw in the tile backsplash...

    ReplyDelete
  53. You did beautiful job on those cabinets - will you fly up to Connecticut and do mine with me?

    ;-)

  54. Didn't even notice the stove untill you pointed it out. Love the little decorative things corbels or what ever they are called. How cool of you to save some money and be frugal about decorating. I really admire that! I think the cabinets are fab!!
    Prayers for your kiddo.

  59. Great job on teh cabinets. What technique (sp?) did you use to get that washed effect? Was it hard?

    The whole room looks brighter! :)

    ReplyDelete
  60. When I told my dad thaty I wanted to paint my cabinets, he said.. don't do it- the paint will chip! So... I wasn't brave enough to do it. Is there anything special you did to your cabinets to prevent chipping?

    ReplyDelete
  61. I just found your blog and love it! I've spent some time today going back and reading. When I stumbled upon this entry, I had to comment. Your cabinets are beautiful!!!!! I love, love, love them!!! Do you mind sharing how you did them? This is just what I have been looking to do with mine.
    Thanks so much!
