Kitchen Cabinet Makeover BEFORE!

Hello my BEAUTIES!
I have been working on my kitchen cabinet makeover for a while.
Today I am going to show you the Before.
The above picture was the last time I redid my cabinets.
It was way back in 2012...:)
You can see that post HERE.
It was even PRE my Farmhouse Table...
THAT is how long ago it was. 
Now I LOVED my kitchen cupboards but it was time for a change.
I had used a mineral paint and used a sealer but they were starting to show some wear and tear.

My kids love to cook, and I LOVE it when they do,
but they are messy and were a little hard on the mineral paint on 
the cupboards.
That meant it was time for a change.
Now as you I am sure have guessed, I have done this MANY, MANY times.
The normal way to do this is to take off the cupboards paint them and put them back up...
BUT I AIN'T GOT TIME FOR THAT!  
(just keeping it real here folks)
Sometimes in the DIY world you gotta do what you gotta do.
With our busy schedule I worked out a way to paint them WITHOUT taking them down.
Here you can see me trying to decide what the exact color was that  I wanted to go with.
I removed the hardware, Lightly sanded down the cupboards and wiped them all clean.
I was mixing paint and seeing how it looked DRY before I went full Throttle 
and painted them all.

 After seeing how seeing how it looked this is what I finally chose.
I went with General Finishes
Queenstown Gray and 
their Satin High Performance finish.
I can't WAIT to show you the AFTER.
The makeover has been done almost a month now and I LOVE it.
I wanted to make sure it could stand the test of my CHILDREN 
before I showed it to you.
I can tell you it HAS.
So be sure to come back next week for the REVEAL of the finished Kitchen Cupboard Makeover.
Until then,
Go Make Someones Day BEAUTIFUL.
