PAINTING DARKLY STAINED KITCHEN CABINETS TO AN OFF WHITE GLAZED FINISH FOR TRACY & NICK

PAINTING DARKLY STAINED KITCHEN CABINETS TO AN OFF WHITE GLAZED FINISH FOR TRACY & NICK

Tracy and Nick's kitchen cabinets were very, very darkly stained.  The cabinets had a beautiful finish on them, but made the kitchen and surrounding area very dark.  They had lived with the dark kitchen for several years and decided they wanted a change.  
So, their original builder called and asked me to paint and glaze all the cabinets in the kitchen, wet bar area and butler's pantry.  There were a lot of cabinets to be painted!
It was amazing how much lighter everything looked.
They thought the lighter paint made the kitchen look much larger.
They added dark knobs and handles.  The contrast to the light cabinets was beautiful!
Here are Bailey and Winnie.  They are the sweetest dogs.
They love company and LOVE greeting you.
I've never been greeted so joyfully :)
Kitchen cabinets "before".
Nick and Tracy were very happy with their new kitchen.

  1. Linda, did you strip the dark off first?

  2. Will this paint peel off of the cabinets over time? My husband and I are looking to remodel our kitchen, and I am on info overload. We have read that painting is better on mdf(which we do not want,) because painting on wood eventually leads to chipping, and gaps in the paint when the wood expands and contracts. Any info on this? Thanks!
