Passing Notes Today: Mrs. Kelly
Remember my ugly brown cabinets in my laundry nook? Well, it was time to say goodbye to the tiger-mud color (I just made that color up so Benjamin Moore, if you want to steal it, I will expect royalties).
Is your head spinning from the brown tiger-mud? Mine was too. So we took the doors off one Saturday night and crammed a bunch of stuff into the cabinets. We lightly sanded the bases, primed them and then added two coats of Honeysuckle Bloom paint. We painted the doors (and by "we" I mean mostly my husband) in the basement. They also got two coats of paint.
|Don't judge the neatness of my cabinets. It was late and I was cramming stuff in there!|
I took the photo below around 11 PM at night on my iPhone. Hence, the stellar quality I look pretty fetching here. Maybe I shouldn't be so focused on making over the cabinets and instead....oh well.
And, here is the outcome. Doesn't it look nice and bright?
We also switched out the old hardware. I thought about spraying the existing ones with some oil rubbed bronze paint but I wanted a more modern pull. Plus, I only had a few pieces to replace so it wasn't a big expense. I purchased the handles below from Home Depot.
This pull (below) was from Lowe's.
Believe it or not, we had a gallon of the Honeysuckle Bloom so the only expense was the new hardware and some primer. It cost us less than $30 for this makeover. Woohoo!!!
Now off to work on my makeover. I have a feeling it might cost more than $30...
Note from Mrs. Gosling: I feel like coming over to your house to do laundry. It's so bright & airy now. I really love it and the price tag! Nice job Mrs. K!
Note from Mrs. Williams: Such a pretty and bright transformation! And only for $30...now, that's impressive!
