I love me some good "before" pictures!
There are different ways to do this, I chose to use a combination of sponge brush and roller. I actually used the roller without the handle, and pushed it along the wood to push it into the grain, THEN sprayed it again. Lots of work!
I refinished the doors and drawers. I also sprayed out the new side panels that my customers purchased and cut to fit. They did a TON of work themselves by painting the boxes, adding the new panels and tons of nice trim to the entire kitchen which I love because it give it a more high end look.
They choose a light grey for the perimeter of the kitchen called Cathedral Gray by Behr and the island was a darker gray called Antique Tin also by Behr.
