Today's Project: Toning & Glazing Cabinets

After removing, cleaning and sanding lightly our cabinets looked like this

Then with a somewhat intimidating round of spraying toner to add color we had this:

Then after a coat of polyurethane dried, we added the glaze.  We still have a few more coats of polyurethane to go.  And with a lot more practice the rest will look even better!!

I know MaRea is crazy because. . .

She gets nervous during the holidays that family activities will prevent her from doing this:

Or at 10:30 at night she decides to do this: 

Or she strips wallpaper in a house with no heat and outside temps below freezing . . .
Or she leaves the house close to midnight to deliver a few coupons. . .
Or she stays awake because she is too excited about applying labels to everything. . . 

And I love her craziness because without it our house wouldn't look like  . . .  (pics pending completion)
