Wow, these are painted cabinets? "Two layers of paint transform plain wood cabinets: a red latex base coat coupled with a top coat of oil-base paint (black and raw umber) mixed with oil-base glazing liquid and paint thinner. Basket-style metal hardware suits the decorative paint finish."
We recently moved into my late-grandmother's house that we are renovating. The kitchen renovation isn't quite complete, but I could hardly wait to share the progress! I discovered that the original hardware is copper, so I decided to go with it. I trimmed out the doors to give them extra dimension. I LOVE how this small change along with a new paint job totally transformed this cottage kitchen!
The Cabinet Transformations product is a kit sold in home improvement stores (definitely at Lowe’s and Home Depot). It’s a water-based, multi-purpose product for use on wood, laminate, melamine and metal. You take the kit up to the paint counter and ask them to tint it in one of 35 different colors. The process is four steps and it’s really no more difficult than painting and wiping. by Lindsay
