Finishing Touches For Cabinet Makeover

When I finished the cabinet makeover, I decided that I needed to add a few more touches. After all, if the men who live in my home thought it was primed rather than glazed to perfection, guests might think the same. Although, I'm sure most of my guests will have more imagination than my sons. Anyway, I decided to make the cabinets match my faux fireplace. 
So, I got out the stencils and stenciled the same design on the doors. There are 2 pieces to the stencil which gave flexibility to make it fit right. 
But that wasn't quite enough. I didn't want to put the old wooden knobs back on. Remember these?
So I headed for the home improvement store on a mission to find something the brought these cabinets into this decade. I chose a ring pull for the large cabinet. 
I chose smaller but similarly finished knobs for the smaller cabinet.
I did not drill these holes. They came uneven from the factory, can you believe it?
That wraps up this part of the makeover. Stay tuned for the makeover of those lamps and end tables from the WWYD feature

  1. Michelle,
    That looks so nice. You did a really nice job. Bet that looks neat now that those pieces match your fireplace. Since I'm not artsy, I like when you describe your thought processes when you decide what and how to do a project.

  2. Very nice job. What is it about the male species that doesn't 'get' the painted and glazed look? My husband would rather die than paint and glaze real wood.
    Your projects turned out great. Love the stencil and new knobs.

  3. Wow!! I really love this. Both cabinets turned out so beautifully! Thanks for linking up to my Transform Tuesday party. I can't wait to see what you do for next week. :)

  4. Love this transformation! My husband is one of the natural wood finish nazis and my bedroom set will likely be dark walnut FOREVER. Hmmm, he's not a nazi so much as a grump! lol

  5. Oh these are gorgeous! You have inspired me to get to work on mine! Thanks for linking up and sharing your creative juices :)

  6. Wow! Looks great! I found your post on Antiprocrastination Tuesday. I have recently been doing some furniture facelifts of my own and you've got me thinking of new projects!

    I'm your newest follower, an I'm new to the blogging world so I also enjoy new friends :)

  7. I really, really love this transformation. Such a difference! Great work.
