New but old


These were the standard ugly walnut cabinets that were here when we moved in. We were on a budget so totally replacing them was out of the question. SO I painted and distressed them! We get so many compliments! Love them!

    The walls, I had left over brown paint from a dresser re-do, so I got sort of crazy and balled up a plastic Walmart sack and dipped into the paint then sort of patted/smeared it around until I got the desired look. I've done the same look with a damp wash cloth as well. I think I liked the damp cloth better. Super easy ;).

    @miriam I, I'd love to show you more photos! I'm new to hometalk so is it easiest if I just add more photos to this post?
