I just love both of those projects! I wish I was brave enough to do that to my kitchen-but we have these crazy countertops that wouldn't make that transition well-and granite now? No way! Regardless....I love what you did!

Carrie said...

The kitchen looks good wow I am impressed!

beth at aunties said...

WOW!!!! Your kitchen turned out gorgeous!!! You must have done that one before I met you!
Looking forward to 2009!

I remember those. I sure wish you would come redo mine, I can't get the paint to stay on and it just never looks as good :(

Heather's Stitches said...

Wow, Looks Great! How long did it take to paint the cabinets?

The kitchen really POPPED with the black color. It made it look like a different kitchen. I loved the dresser too. I'm sure you will find some more projects. Paint does wonders!

edeenut said...

oh! I love your projects, they are such an amazing change. I also love those silver pulls you put on the dresser I need to get me some of them.

Joanna said...

Great projects! The kitchen turned out fantastic as did the dresser!

I hear you about the moola - I wish my budget could keep up with my vision - you know? Your kitchen is adorable.

fanLOVELY!
I also painted my cabinets-and my counters.
The dresser is BEAUTIFUL
Did you see the new product from Rustoleum to paint counters? I wish it existed when I painted my counters...but I'm still pleased with them.

I love both projects!! I have been really into black furniture lately too...I just love the look of it. Your house looks great!

The Berry's Patch said...

WOW! Your kitchen looks gorgeous. That would be my favorite project too.

I was so impressed the first time I saw these, and am still equally impressed. Beautiful work. Doncha hate that beautification requires money?

Shannon said...

Those two projects were my favorites too! They were great!

I hadn't seen your kitchen and I must say it's fabulous! You have a great talent with a paintbrush.

Ok, I am planning on doing this to our kitchen this year! Can you tell me how you painted your cabinets. Or, if you hired someone, how did you find them?
I love the way the dresser looks. I am getting my husband's grandmother's dresser soon, and I want to do that also! LOL

Marie said...

Oh yes. That dresser was quite fantastic. Love your kitchen too!!!! I love those appliances.

Your projects turned out great. Painting those kitchen cabinets must have been a lot of work. Mimi
