I have no shame in telling you that I most definitely and deliberately copied Debbie at Debbiedoos’ project where she attached a wood embellishment to her drawer front under her kitchen sink. There. I said it and I’m fine with it.
I have seen this addition to kitchen cabinet fronts at a few other blogs and always loved the look, filing it away in the back of my mind, because I’ve had this wood embellishment for a few years now. Just waiting for the perfect project.
Well, what could be more perfect than this! This is what the front looked like before.
I pulled out the sample pot that I still have of my ASCP Paris Grey. I thought the grey might work well for my kitchen because the cabinets are a creamy white and the countertop is grey. Plus I have stainless steel appliances, so grey it was.
Here it is after two coats of the grey. I could just leave it like this. But, I didn’t.
I did add some antique white craft paint to some areas by dry brushing it on. The white is very subtle.
Then I added some clear wax and some dark wax to show off some of the detailing better.
This is a really quick project to update your kitchen! I decided I didn’t want to make anything permanent at the moment, so I attached it to the drawer front with some museum putty/wax.
Let’s go into my dungeon of a kitchen and try and see it through the darkness. Bring your night vision goggles if you’ve got ‘em. I just love it!
I was going to crop this next picture, but this is real life and I was cooking dinner and working on a little project at the same time.
Such a quick, easy and inexpensive way to dress up a cabinet front!
Thanks, Debbie! Seeing your post gave me the kick in the pants to just do it already. Plus, I think it’s fitting I copied you since you host the Copycat Linky Party!
