Custom Fun: Cabinet Updates
Cabinets... the most popular interior custom job we have right now. Currently we have five on the leader board and more in the works!
Chalk Paint® Decorative Paint is allowing people to see the cost advantage to updating your existing cabinets rather than tearing them out and replacing with new. In most cases our clients spend a quarter of what it would cost to start over! That's significant in this economy. It is good stewardship, green, and opens limitless possibilities for design and color options.
We thought it would be fun to share some before and after photos of our kitchen projects.
These cabinets received a custom color - a combination of Paris Grey and Old White. They also have clear wax followed by dark wax for that subtle antique effect.
You can see the awesome transformation in this kitchen. A pass through was created. The island has a new poured and polished concrete countertop. The cabinets got crown molding and a coat of Old White. Updated hardware gives the modern feel the homeowners were after. We also did a concrete overlay on the outlying countertops with a coordinating concrete overlay back splash.

Yep... She went RED!! A total update with Emperor's Silk and minimal distressing. The hardware simply received a coat of paint.

Another set of Oak cabinets with a facelift of a custom Graphite blend.

These cabinets got some extra love! Old White covers the Golden Oak and Provence was used to embellish the detail of the doors. The PERFECT hardware was found and installed to complete the look. Although you can't see it - the island was done in the contrasting fashion. The base is Provence.
I told you! This hardware was practically MADE for these cabinets. Sometimes the perfect find seems almost custom!
Here's a "peek" at some of the upcoming kitchens we have in the works:
- Burgundy base cabinets with Grey uppers
- Black door and drawer fronts with a combination French Linen and Pure White base
- Custom Green base with Color Wash uppers
Some fun stuff coming up! We'll be sure to feature our future kitchens as well! Until then... what could you do in your kitchen, bathroom, or laundry room?
