It's the little details that make me happy

These beautiful white kitchen cabinets needed just a little face lift to make them ohhhh so perfect...
Notice: previous homeowner stain that won't come out...nobody wants to know what that is, let alone eat off of anything in a 2 mile radius...
A fresh coat of paint and some new stainless steel handles went from cute to fab...
HGTV says this is a cheap and easy update for your kitchen...ummm have you seen the cost of hardware? And when you say easy...you realize this is a woman with a drill who can be very impatient and has trouble drilling holes straight?
Note to self...handles are 100 times harder to install than knobs...are they really worth it???
So much better! Now let's all try to keep our grimy hands off the beautiful white cabinets...
A towel hanger from Ikea under the sink makes washing so much easier when the towels hanging from the stove are 10 miles away...plus little miss zebra rug deserved a little shout out ;)Okay...so it wasn't so bad...the hardware came to about $50...an updated look that really makes the kitchen stand out...there was no blood...I think it was worth it!

  1. Looks great! Hardware make all the difference. Did you know there is a little grid thingy you can use when installing them that makes it SO much easier? I couldn't live without mine. :)

  9. You did a great job! Hardware makes it look more custom. Installing hardware is a pain. I made a psuedo-template...thrify decor sounds like she needs to give us the hookup.

  10. I've never thought about a towel bar under the sink--great idea! We built our house 2 years ago and when we went shopping for cabinet knobs I almost had a heart attack--Holy crap! They are expensive!

  13. I have to say, Bravo! My husband and I (ok, my husband) redid our kitchen cabinets about 4 months ago. (ok, he completed them 4 months ago) the whole project took much longer than I expected (or wanted) so I got frustrated and gave up. So I have to praise your dedication to painting the cabinets (a much harder task than it seems) AND drilling the holes for the hardware. Your kitchen turned out AMAZING!!

  19. This post is such an inspiration to me. My kitchen needs H E L P and I'm still trying to get the courage to do something with it. I really like your countertops, are the granite or quartz?
