Kitchen Before and After

Let me take you on a little tour of my kitchen.We have been making some improvements. This is all done on a "small budget".

 Antique brass hinges. 
 This is changing the hinges to silver and then realizing Home Depot doesn't sale the same type of hinge in silver. WHAT!?! So hubby had to drill new holes. Not fun, a ton of work, but totally worth it:)
Here are the new hinges.

Antique brass handles which I also replaced in the bathroom;)

Here are the new handles.

The first to go was this glorious vent. (we are still working on getting a black stove)

Replaced with a new black one found on black Friday for $93

Needed pull knobs on the drawers and the finish needed to be restored.
Hubby got to work with his drill and now we have brush nickel pull knows.

With a little bit of elbow grease and this "MAGICAL" wonder, (may color options available)

I got my cupboards looking A-Mazing.

Hubby is on call Christmas day. Which means he leaves at 5am on Dec 25th for work and comes home Dec 26th at noon. We decided to celebrate Christmas a day early in our house:) So, I will be absent for a few days as we prepare for the holidays, celebrate, and recover from it all:) Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas.

Are your cabinets real wood or the kind that peels off like paper. Did you sand the cabinets first?
