Hubby and I just refinished our kitchen cabinets. Here are before pictures:
I hated the builder grade oak colored cabinets so much because they blended in with our floors and granite. It made the whole house look yellow/orange. I really wanted to replace the whole kitchen with new cabinets but our cabinets were in good shape so refinishing them was the right choice. I decided on dark brown.. almost black paint for the cabinets. Not sure why in some of the pictures the cabinets look chocolate but in real life they are dark dark brown. I also added 5 inch crown molding on the top of the cabinets. I'm so glad i spent extra money there. They make the cabinets look custom.
Here are the pictures of the finished product:
The picture above is much more true to the color of our dark cabinets.
Up next will be the bathroom.
