Preview

I decided to take a huge risk this week. I've been wanting to do this for forever and finally got up the guts to do it. My sisters came to town for the week to help me out and give some major moral support! And I was/am nervous. But it is turning out. Slowly. Here is just a little preview of what I've been up to this week. This is what my kitchen cabinets looked like Monday.

This is from yesterday. Black baby!!!

Please keep in mind that these pictures are of the messy, un-finished product. But you get the idea. I've learned a lot in the process and it is turning out just the way I wanted...with a few bumps along the way. More detail to come!

Hahah! At first when I saw the after without doors I thought you were not going to have doors at all..which I've seen here and there (or clear doors probably) and I thought.."oh no! What has she done?!! Too much!" hahah..it looks great..and I'm glad you're keeping the doors.

I love it! I'd love to do the same thing, but I don't think I could get Mr. Miller on board.

Oooh, I love how it's turning out! I love projects like that, time consuming, but so worth it. What kind of finish are you using on it? A Poly coating? I've done kitchen cabinets before and I would say it's completely needed to keep them clean and nice looking. Plus it's cheap and easy to do.

Good job! Can't wait to see the finished product. That's a lot of work! We did our cabinets too, but white with an antique glaze. Good thing Jaran's so savvy because I wouldn't have done it by myself.
