I have a confession, I want to paint my kitchen cabinets BLACK!

If you have been reading along, I am sure you know I want to paint my kitchen cabinets black. I have been contemplating this change for almost 2 years!  Having never painted shiny stained wood cabinets before I was terrified to try it.  I finally decided to give a new product a try (details with the full post after project completion - stay tuned! This paint is supposed to stick to ANYTHING). I figured I would paint my master bathroom cabinets first as they are the same as my kitchen cabinets and if I ruined them it would be far easier and cheaper to rip them out and replace them.

Nonetheless as I literally sit here and wait for the paint to dry, I am sharing a sneak peak with you.  The cabinets started out like this....
Middle of the road, maple, warmly stained cabinets.  

I took all of the door hardware and doors off (which was surprisingly easier than I anticipated) and went to work.  
  1. I cleaned them all off with TSP & water.
  2. Let them dry.
  3. Painted
It was that simple.  This new cover anything primer works like a charm.....
Now I am having to make a hard choice: Distress or Not To Distress the cabinets.  eeeek I can't decide!

  1. Those doors look great. The cream color kitchen cabinets are always stylish. They seem to withstand time.
