Hi Karla! The kitchen turned out beautiful! What a fantastic transformation...isn't amazing what we can do with paint and a little elbow grease? Thank you for visiting!

That looks great! We love our paint, don't we? I'm going to try your Minwax trick on my dining chairs - thanks for the tip!

The Sugarwings Picassa pic is adorable. You are soooo talented!

I wish I could sew and I wish I knew how to better use my computer.


Thanks for the hint about binding primer. We are painting my daughter's room now.

Wow! What a difference paint can make!

Karla, I love it! You would NEVER know that they were the same cabinets! What a huge difference! I really want to paint mine now! Jen


Thanks, Karla! This kitchen remodel is so inspiring, especially the tip about the primer. I've been holding off painting our cabinets, because, well, I don't want to sand ... ever.

Was Sugar Wings chanting "follow the yellow brick road"? I bet she was. She is so cute.


Beautiful makeover of the kitchen and a magical makeover of the photo. It truly does look like something from fairyland - or Oz.



I like both the makeovers. Cute little subject on the second one though. I don't think there could be a bad pic of her!


you know how to do everything - that kitchen looks great & you gave great tips on how to do it


Wow! What a difference Picasa makes! I'm almost afraid to try it, as I have enough obsessions and little enough time as it is. I can just picture the hours and hours playing with it!


Love your studio, every time I see it, it seems to get prettier. Sugarwings looks beautiful all the time. Martha


Thank you, so much, for visiting my blog. I think I barely met you at Silver Bella last year, but I didn't realize it was you until later that night. I look forward to seeing you again.


I want to redo my kitchen cabinets and you've given me something to look forward too!



But you are an expert at this and you do things . . . . paint things just perfectly. I haven't really tried my hands on it but somehow I enjoy reading about paints and primers and what you do with it LOL Maybe cause I like the before and after look in the end. First, Sugarwings bed and others and now an kitchen. This is major!. And what a difference it is. I like the aged look you did and the swirl details too! :-)

Look at Sugarwings so happy walking through the yellow brick road - - - going to Emerald City? :-)


(I've seen you studio in your post before. Was that last month . . . or maybe more?. There's so much to look at. It's definitely a happy place for crafting.)


Karla, that is one amazing and wonderful kitchen makeover...it doesn't even look like the same place after you worked your painting magic...WOW!!! i am SO impressed!!!
i love the picture of Sugarwings traveling down the yellow brick road...darling!!!


That Oz photo looks fabulous! You did a great job with it!


Hi this is my first comment, but I just had to comment on how fabulous the kitchen redo looks. I really like the two tone cabinets with the light on top and dark on the bottom. It's amazing what a change paint makes!


You talents never cease to amaze me, the redo is fantastic and so cost effective! We don't have one of those paint surplus places but I have lucked out a time or two with oops paint at the hardware store.

Thank you for visiting and viewing my studio. Have a great week!


Great job using Picasa! I've been using it for months and months but you've been playing around with it far more than I have!


Karla, That redo is amazing...I love it... Paint always does wonders...Love seeing little Dorthy..

Alison Gibbs

Great ktchen makeover.
Of course Little Dorothy is just way too cute


I have a project that's not even that major and I can't seem to make myself do it. You amaze me.
