Updating an 80s kitchen
Cabinets were painted BM Navajo White then slightly distressed and glazed with min-wax provincial stain mixed with a glazing medium.
We updated all the hardware to oil rubbed bronze and replaced the old green laminate counter tops with granite.
We had this cabinet built and used the granite remnant from where they cut out our sink.
(By the way those two pics hanging to the right of the cabinet - I painted those myself!
The 80’s kitchen is finally gone, and in its place is a bright and cheery space!
), I added a new cabinet from the salvage yard that I fixed up and modified with pull out trash and recycling drawers.
You can see our lovely 80s cabinets off to the right in this picture.
But for now, we’re so happy with how it all turned out that we’re postponing the kitchen remodel another year or two.

When I built this house in 1987 I was so very proud to have solid oak kitchen cabinets. Not that there is anything really wrong with oak, it is a nice wood with lots of grain and it was very popular in the 80s.
