Kitchen Facelift



Before



After

So a few months ago, I decided that I was fed up with my crappy old kitchen cabinets and that it was time to give them a much needed facelift.  I had been thinking about it for about 3 years and it took me about that long to convince my husband they would turn out okay, but I finally convinced him that even if I messed up, they couldn't possibly look any worse than they did.   In the end, he caved and let me do it!  I painted them white, sanded the edges, then stained over the top with a dark walnut stain. (I hear gel stains work well, too, but I haven't ever tried them.)  It was messy and time-consuming, but totally worth it!  And as an awesome Christmas present to myself, we topped them off with beautiful granite countertops!
