Now that I have had a chance to put everything away and clean the counters, I have my (almost) final kitchen pictures! I say almost because I still haven’t done anything about the wires hanging above the sink window and because Bradley will be buying and installing a new faucet for me as an anniversary gift:) (He is trying to speak my ‘service’ love language with my gift and I am all over it!) Here is what I have decided on after a little research:
Delta Leland One Handle Pull Down Kitchen Faucet with magnetic dock and soap dispenser
Just a reminder of what the kitchen looked like before:
And now my newly-painted cabinets with new brushed nickel hardware:
A close-up of the new hardware:
The new tip-out trays under the sink:
The story behind the new hardware and tip-out trays can be found here.
Update July 2012:
I am still really pleased with the finish I received by using Sherwin Williams Adhesion Primer and ProClassic Latex Enamel. All of the cabinet, door, and drawer finishes have held up really well. I never applied a clear coat finish, because we kind of liked the matte finish. I am able to easily wipe them clean. At times I have to lightly scrub spots of dried splatters from inevitable kitchen messes and at first I was a little worried about it pulling off some paint, but that has never happened. The paint really did dry hard. I would definitely recommend these paints for this type of application.
