Well, my clients were thrilled when they came home from vacation and found their "new" kitchen. It's such an honor to be trusted in someone's home while they are away for a week. Seems like whenever they called to check in, day or night, I was still there. They would kid me that I must be having wild parties while they were gone. I actually was having fun, working in their garage, step by step, day by day, to give a second life to their cabinets.
After cleaning, prepping and priming the cabinets, I painted them a custom cream color. Then I rubbed a chocolate brown glaze all over the doors and moldings, making sure the glaze sat perfectly in all the crevices. The final step was to apply three coats of a water-based sealer. It was a nice break from climbing a ladder all week long. And of course, the best part is always my clients' reaction when they come home to see their makeover completed.
