Two things we love here at The 2 Seasons are company and kitchens. In today’s post we have both. Please welcome Carmel from Our Fifth House. We’re excited that Carmel is writing a guest post about her gorgeous kitchen. She and her husband did a lot of the work, and I think you’ll really enjoy reading about it and getting to know her. And if you haven’t stopped by her blog yet, be sure to do so. I bet you will make it a regular read. Now, here’s Carmel.
Hello, I’m Carmel from Our Fifth House. It’s such a pleasure to be be here today. Janette and I both live in Lexington, and we recently met for lunch. It was so fun to put a face to the blog name, and I hope I have the chance to meet Jordan sometime too! Anyhow, since Jordan recently painted her kitchen cabinets white I thought I’d share my own kitchen cabinet makeover.
The inspiration behind my decision to distress my kitchen cabinets came from this article. I fell in love with that French inspired kitchen and decided I needed a little of that in my life s’il vous plait! We inherited black granite counter tops and painted white cabinets from the previous owners, so we weren’t too far off of the inspiration kitchen. All I needed to do was distress the cabinets to achieve the look. It wasn’t a difficult task but it was time consuming. Here’s a recap of the process.
1. Remove all of the cabinet hardware.
2. Sand the cabinets with a sanding block.
