Updating old oak cabinets
I prefer to do 2 light coats, letting them dry in between. After they are good and dry, I took the sander to the edges. Decorating a home doesn't have to cost a fortune and I've spent years thrifting at antiques markets and yard sales, finding those treasures that make a home unique.
You want to distress in the areas that would most likely wear with age, like the rails, top and edge of the legs. The chairs are back in place and I’m happy with them. I'm here to inspire and encourage other women to find their own inner creativity.
I love this example above with the blue gray walls don’t you?
I never found the exact source but an almost perfect match for one of the choices below… This is a much better choice and warms up this kitchen more than yellow ever would.
Outside they went and first I wiped them down with a liquid sander.
There must of been a really BIG sale back in the 90’s when this stuff was popular!But yellow, dear readers, does not work because of the golden tones of the wood.Yet, as A Home Stager I see this color chosen quite often, As you can see in this example above, the beige floor has pink undertones, making the yellow look worse.The house is probably not going to be returned to us in better shape than we handed it over. ) But also, there is a limit to how much we can earn each month from the house, so investing in to a new kitchen would be pointless, (at least until we decide to sell – and I doubt we will do it then either).Once, I accepted the fact that our kitchen was going to stay this color, I had to decide what small changes we could make to improve the look of the space and ideas to update oak kitchen cabinets. This was not that much of a stretch since turquoise and blue are a main color way in the last home, but bringing that color into the kitchen really helped the orange look nicer.
