Cabinet Redo and Birdcage Pot Rack
Some of you may remember that my husband and I have been
refinishing our kitchen cabinets for the past couple of weeks as he has been laid off.
(On a related note – we will soon be able to track the weeks of unemployment by the new growth
of the dark roots in my hair… I may need to try my hand at some “Frost and Glow”…)
This is what we have been using on our cabinets. So far we have not had to
get an additional kit, so I would say it has a good amount of coverage.
Here is a picture from back in December. You can see the cabinets in the background.
We put them in around 17 years ago, and they are still in good shape.
I was so very tired of the wood look, however.. Hubby and I disagreed on painting them.
He likes to see the wood grain. So we compromised with the Rustoleum kit.
And I really really really like it..
Here is the first post I did with tutorial of the kit:
And yes, since you ask.
That is a birdcage I have on the ceiling with my pots hanging from it.
We took my old pot rack down to make room for the new light.
I decided I still wanted a rack, but a much smaller one.
I racked my brain (aren’t I so funny!)
trying to think of something I could repurpose to hang my pots from.
I saw this decorative birdcage in my living room and decided to give it a try.
I like it..
It is different and free – you can’t beat that.
It is pretty hard to beat refinished cabinets for $74 too!
Of course, we bought all the hardware at about $4 per piece,
so that brings the total price up to about $174 – still a bargain though.
We still have the 3 cabinets under the sink to do – but you know me
I can never wait to show things off!
I am trying now to figure out if I want to switch out some of the things I
have out on the counters. I love the pop of red – but the black really stands out too.
I hope you enjoyed seeing our little Diy project!
I am sure you will see this room again…ya’ll know I like to show off…… ;-)
