Modge Podge Kitchen Drawers :)

Well, I finally updated the drawers in my kitchen!

I moved into a new house back in December. The walls were red and a yellowish color (reminded me of McDonald's) and the cabinets were an off-white (from cigarette smoke i believe). Anywho...i painted the kitchen walls chocolate brown (yum!) and we repainted the cabinets white (bright white). My accent color for the brown is a bright green. Oh, also, the cabinets and drawers had these not so cute gold handles on them....so i replaced those as well!

We painted the cabinets back in January, but still had not painted the doors or the drawers....therefore our cabinets have been completely open. After coming across a new blog, Modge Podge Rocks, I decided I wanted to spruce up my cabinet drawers after painting them and before finally placing them in my new kitchen!

I went to my local craft store...Hobby Lobby to be exact :) ....and bought some scrapbook paper in my accent color and got to modge-podging!

Here are some before and after pictures of my drawers!

This is what the drawers looked like before they received the new paint job

The inside...eww :/

Michael helped me paint!

...so much better!

Here is the finished product!



We still have a long way to go with our kitchen remodeling, but at least the cabinets are all most done! We are hoping to get a new fridge, new stove and redo the floor tile, the counters and the backsplash. It will be such an improvement when we finish! I can't wait :D
