Ok, so me and wife are soon moving in to our first house and there are so many upgrades to be done, but we are starting with our kitchen. First thing will be cabinets and as our budget is pretty tight, I'll be working with what I have pretty much.Right now the cabinets are dark wood with old outdated hardware. Im planning on adding decorative molding to cabinet faces, new knobs/pulls, painting the cabinets an off white or creamy white and adding dark glaze especially in the molding areas to give it that rustic look or the popular look nowadays. Im looking for advice or a DIY on how do this step by step, I need any and all info/advice to make sure I do this the right way. What paint (valspar) , what glaze color? I really have no idea how to go about this, but am good at diy projects and feel confident I can do it. THANKS!
