My kitchen cabinets were deep, dark and disorganized. Trying to find things was like cave exploring. When we began remodeling our kitchen I knew those cabinets had to go and be replaced with some open shelving where I could see things without a flashlight.
I love how these turned out! Now I can see what I need and don't have to spend 20 minutes with a flashlight digging through a cabinet.
I plan on making curtains to cover up the stuff on the bottom shelves so my kitchen doesn't look quite so busy.
Zinsser 1-2-3 primer, Rustoleum Hammered Metal spray paint for the tops
Varathane polyurethane over everything
I was amazed at how much stain this wood soaked up even with using the pre-stain! Started out buying a small can and ended up going back to buy a 32 oz. and then having to buy another 32 oz and used half of that.
Also used about 6 cans of the Rustoleum. Learned that the trigger spray works much better than the regular spray for creating the textured finish.
