Look what I did

In the summer of 2007, I did this project.

Ignore Griffin in the "I heart Chicks" pjs, he is looking for Easter eggs. I am very bad at taking before pictures, so this was the only one I had of the cabinets.

Newly painted with brown glaze detail, new hardware.

Ever since the big kitchen project, I had wanted to update the bathrooms as well.

When she posted this, I knew it was time to get busy.

Again, no real before shot. We have the same bathroom cabinets in our master (pictured) that room is next!

I painted the walls, removed the rubber duckie wallpaper border, painted the main cabinet, medicine cabinet and spray painted the hardware. And the best part...I had all the paint so the project cost was only my time.

I love it. It is still kid friendly for our 4 year old but not too babyish and embarrasing for the almost 11 year old.

Next up, the master bathroom. Anyone have a good (CHEAP) bathroom renovation project to share. I need ideas.

What a difference! I love the Rubber Ducky Theme...our bathroom is yellow and blue. I might need to add some runner duckies! Cute!

Wow, it looks great!

I love the kitchen too. I have a soft spot for kitchen re-dos since ours took forever!

I stink at renovation and cute stuff. You did a great job!

I started laughing when I saw your first picture of your kitchen because I have the same white range top stove with my pampered chef tool cady sitting in the same spot next to my stove with black spoons in it! I would go and take a picture for you but there are still dished from dinner all over the counter.

I painted my cabinets a couple of years ago... they are red and my hubby informed me that he can't stand them even though I love them. You did a good job by the way, I love the bathroom. I want to redo ours.

I'm so impressed. I can't believe what a difference it makes.

Both cabinet jobs look amazing! I can't believe how much the rooms changed with just a cabinet makeover. Hmmmm, it's making me think I might be able to do the same!

I think painted light cabinets look so much fresher than dark stained ones. They look GREAT in your house! Nice work. Maybe you could post before photos of the master so we could pepper you with suggestions.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
