Before & After–Kitchen Furniture
I’m happy to say that spray painting the hardware for the kitchen furniture worked! To think I was going to buy all new pulls. I’m glad I gave spraying them a shot because not only did I save myself some money, but I love the way they turned out. Now that the hardware is back in place, it’s time for some real before and after shots – my favourite! Of course I’ve included a yummy close up of that dark bronzy goodness we were lacking yesterday. You’ll notice that I switched the top drawers around so the knob is now on the inside. I think it looks more balanced this way. I owe that one to my Mom. I sent her a picture and she suggested flipping them around to see how it looked. She was right. She usually is.What a difference a bit of paint can make. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t completely and totally head over heels, crazy in love with it. The best part – it was a really cheap transformation. All I purchased was a gallon of Mountain Smoke by Valspar, mixed with High Gloss Behr ($40) and a can of Krylon ORB ($10) with a Satin Finish. I barely put a dent in the Mountain Smoke (I have plans for the rest) and the majority of the ORB was used for my puffy paint vase. Well worth it if you ask me. I’m so happy I was able to give this piece a new life. It sure beats buying something new.Can you believe how expensive wood furniture is these days?
