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...
(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.
