Wanna know one of my favorite parts of blogging?
Seeing how readers take my how-tos and run with it which result in stunning results.
I was on the Nest the other day and happened to see how Beth&Derek was doing her part to rid the world of honey oak one room at a time.
She used the glazing technique from my honey oak bathroom vanity and applied it to her entire kitchen with amazing results.
Here is what she had to say-
We're still not completely done refinishing our cabinets (need to finish adding the molding and hanging a new wine rack), We used 4 parts clear mixing glaze and one part paint (BM Branchport Brown). The hardest part was definitely the sanding. Removing the hardware was easy, but the pulls we had were 2.5" and 3" is pretty standard (the new ones we got are 3") so we needed to fill one of the holes and drill a new one on each door/drawer before painting. I should add that even though the sanding sucked, it only took 2 days (I was home on vacation). The painting and the poly took longer because I had to wait for each coat to dry. I have to thank you for the inspiration!!
Wow! I can’t get over how much better the appliances, wall color and counters look with a different glaze on the cabinets. She did an amazing job and it looks like a completely different kitchen.
Want to try it for yourself? Check out the how-to here. I would love to see what you come up with!
On a unrelated note….after many emails about how to become a follower of my blog I finally put the gadget in my sidebar. You see when I first started writing it, I did not want a big fat “0” sitting there for everyone to see how pathetic I was so I left it off. But since it has been requested many times and I want to make it easy to be follower, it now there and I would love if anyone wanted to click it to make me look less pathetic…..or you could just come over to look at the number and laugh. Either way your choice…..
