Glazed.......

Last week, was a busy one. One of my three sister's wanted her kitchen cabinets glazed. She seemed to be under some delusion that I was the person to talk to. Don't get me wrong.......I love to glaze. I'm just not sure I'm the person to talk to. That all said, my sister, her husband and myself got busy and glazed the cabinets and the oak handrails in her house.
Here is a before shot:
This is my sister that loves the water and loves boats. The following are the after shots. I also love the crown moulding and knobs on the cabinetry! I love how the color of the cabinets changed. It honestly makes them feel and look brand new.
There are home improvement projects I love and others I hate. This is one that I love. So which improvement projects do you love? Which do you hate? The top of my hate list is ripping out old flooring. (Makes my skin crawl. I can't help but think about all the stuff that is in the old flooring.)

I hat it too! We had to rip all the carpet out of this house when we bought it last year, because the renter that had been here let their dog pee everywhere...YUCK!

So we tore it all out ,I put kilz everywhere and we had new floors put in, we still have the bathrooms and kitchen to redo , the rest of the house was done before we got the new floors while I was big fat and pregnant!

I love a kitchen once it get redone , it's my favorite thing !

I really like them. I've never glazed before.

I love painting walls and trying new texture techniques.

I HATE peeling old wallpaper off the walls.

To bad we don't live closer then we could have home remolding parties! :)

mommaof4wife2r- The actually glazing part takes about 8 hours, give or take, for what we did. The getting the right color, the light sanding, the masking is quite another. The hand rails and their spindels are quite tedious work. Fortunately for us.....grandma had the kids.

Her kitchen looks EXACTLY like my neighbor's layout! Including the white countertop! I hate white countertops.

I LOVE ripping out old floors! And laying tile! One of the things Tiggers do best, you know.

The cabinets look fantastic. You should be very proud!
