We couldn't agree on a stain color because I wanted something dark and my husband wanted something lighter that would allow for the natural beauty of maple wood to show through. So it took a while for us to finally agree on a stain and while looking through an Ikea catalog we found this:
Of-course our door style is much different but we loved the color, It's in between dark and light.
We tore the page out and sent it to the person who was going to stain our cabinets and he did an excellent job. While comparing this picture to our cabinets I can say he matched it perfectly.
I will only show you two pictures now of our new cabinets and will post the rest once
we are ready to show our final reveal.
Here is a picture to refresh your memory of what our cabinets looked like before
(in a different angle but same cabinets):
and here are our new wall cabinets:
Our new cabinets go all the way up to the ceiling and you can't see in this picture but we used to have three cabinet doors next to the microwave and now we have four.
Here is a not-so before picture of this wall:
and our new cabinets wall & base on this wall:
Our next step is getting granite countertops, tile backsplash and finally getting my sink installed.
Yes, we do plan on getting new stainless steel appliances but that won't be anytime soon.
I am loving my new cabinets! I can't wait until the kitchen is completely done, I actually miss cooking and washing dishes. I can't thank God enough for all his blessings because I know he is the one who provides and all good things come from him even though we don't deserve it.
Thank You Lord!
