Remember our gorgeous kitchen cabinets? I feel like the worst blogger in the world for STILL not having painted these, but it is what it is. We have removed the top layer of the shell wallpaper, about one eigth of those hideous faux hinges, and we’ve replaced the light.
I think I’ve settled on painting the cabinets white, but I still need to decide if I want to add molding and if I want to try to fill the weird grooves on the doors. The other thing that obviously needs to change is the cabinet hardware.
Here’s what we’re dealing with.
I have about 20 simple satin nickle drawer pulls in the basement (from a previous rental) which I wanted to use throughout the kitchen. Unfortunately, the current drawer pulls are just a tad narrower than the ones we already own, and I don’t want to drill two new holes in every drawer. (As I say this I realize how silly it sounds, since I’ll be drilling two new holes in each of the doors, but what the heck, I don’t like the look of knobs.)
Here’s sort of what the existing handles look like on the doors:
I’m dreaming of these cup pulls for the drawers, but I’m not 100% sure the two choices go together. Here’s a really terrible photoshop of the cup pulls.
Here are the two next to each other. The finish should be the same since they’re both stain nickle from Liberty but in that picture things look a bit different.
And then sometimes I want to go rogue and get black pulls, because they’ll look amazing with the white cabinets. And then I remember that I already own a bag full of perfectly good satin nickle ones…
