I’ve always loved red kitchen cabinets.
I’ve always wanted them. Coveted them. I’d see them in a kitchen magazine or on Pinterest–and I’d stop and just stare at it with a dreamy look on my face.
Along those lines, hubby and I have been wanting to redo do our kitchen going on several years now. Fine, more like ten. We finally reached a point where we were ready to proceed. I studied. I researched. And found a technique called glazing, which I thought might be easier than distressing.
We did it.
Even though I knew white was more trendy, I went with what I love. We only live once, right?
Um, now we just need to get them back on the wall, install the new sink and counter, paint the walls, tear out a cabinet and insert a new range, drill through some brick, add a stone back splash, refinish the floors, and build shelving. Right. Wish us luck. 🙂
I know there’s a life lesson and writing lesson in there somewhere.

Also, the series is complete!
Have a terrific weekend!
Is that all? Get to it!
That’s a sharp red. If that’s what you wanted, then that’s what you needed to do.
Thanks, Alex! 🙂
Ooooh! I like the red cabinet idea.
We painted ours green a few years ago. It was a lot of work and took several coats, including the glossy finish. I wrapped it up by buying whimsical doorknobs — a different one for every cabinet.
