I’ve been busy, busy, busy with lots of kitchen jobs, and am exhausted and elated with all of it. I’ve been lucky to work with some really good people, and this latest oak kitchen refresh is no exception. The homeowner was a huge help, taking down all of the cabinets for me, and even helping reinstall them, which was fantastic, since that’s probably my least favorite part of the process. Are you ready to see the transformation?
Here’s a quick side by side comparison of one are of the kitchen. As you can see, the cabinets were refreshed with paint and new hardware. I love the way the hardware just kicks everything up a notch and makes the transformation that much better. A huge thank you to D. Lawless Hardware for always delivering such a high quality product.
I’ll let the photos do the talking –
I also gave this little piece a refresh so that it matched the rest of the kitchen. Love it. Here’s the before:
And here it is now. It’s like an entirely different piece of furniture!
More kitchen makeovers to come!

Great makeover! The exposed hinges look darker in the after pic. Were they painted, replaced or just a quirk of the camera?

Just a quirk of the camera I think, Debbie. The homeowners opted to keep the existing hinges. 🙂

What a difference! How did you manage to get such a great finish without the oak grain showing through? I’d love to paint my oak cabinets, but the fear of the grain bleeding through has kept me from trying. Any hints?
