My husband and I wanted custom cabinetry and finishes. To save $ we finished them ourselves.
I took this pic while before the front doors were dry but I really like the end result
I had these painted "toasted white" by our painter and when they were done I hated the color (had a pink tint to them)! So instead of repainting them, I glazed over them with a nickel bronze color and I love them now!
The cabinet to the left is the before pic to the posting above.
This is our bar area and you'll see some before pics below. I can't make my mind up on bar stools so we bought these temporary ones. I couldn't stand them being bear so I end up staining them too.
This color is Beachnut by Shirwin Williams. I hand painted all the hangup with Vandike brown.
Our kithcen island and back wall cabinets. I wanted a mixed color effect and that cost extra! Much more extra.
I painted the island, the coffee center (see above), and the cabinet above my stovetop the same and stained the rest. I really love this combination.
