How to Refinish Kitchen Cabinets with NO SANDING?

 

6 years ago we moved into our new house… it was great!

The house was brand new, however, we did not get to pick any colors!

While I liked that our kitchen cabinets were real maple… I HATED the boring color!

 

We painted the walls in an effort to make them look better… but no matter

what we did I was never quite happy with how they looked.

 

We also Built our Own Island (that always had a funny mismatched white cap on it… So I set out to research how to refinish kitchen cabinets…. without breaking the bank, and hopefully tie all the elements of the kitchen together.

 

I jumped online and saw this awesome cabinet transformation kit… that did not require ANY Sanding!! I Hate sanding so this was an interesting product.

Click here to check it out on Amazon

I read review after review, and decided to buy it… I ordered my product, and decided to have it tinted to KONA. (one down from black on the box selection)  If you would prefer lighter cabinet colors you can see those here – Click Here

DIY Bathroom Makeover

When I got my Tinted Box to Refinish my Kitchen I was SCARED!

 

What if my kitchen turned out a complete MESS???

 

So instead of starting in my kitchen I started in the Bathroom!

My bathroom has the same cabinets as the kitchen…

I decided to start there to see if I liked it before I took on the entire kitchen!

This turned out to be a great idea… sadly I did not take any before pictures!!

However I do have an after picture. I love how it made the countertops look great, and the tile backsplash had new life!

 

I accented the bathroom with some great teal Towels I found and I LOVED the final result!

 

I loved the bathroom so much that I could not wait to start the kitchen!

I used one kit for my bathroom, and kitchen cabinets. I have all the glaze left over as the glaze made such a small difference

on the dark color I decided to leave it out.

Inside the kit you fill find all the items pictured here:

How to paint Kitchen Cabinets

You will Need a Few additional Supplies

 

The Extra supplies I recommend are…

  • More Green scrub pads – I found these at the dollar store for 6 to a pack for a $1.
  • 2″ Synthetic Paint Brushes (3 of them)  Do NOT Skimp on quality here! Get the best you can afford. I paid $20 for 4 brushes.
  • A 2″ Foam brush for the glaze (if you choose to glaze)
  • Drop Cloths… (I used old sheets and newspaper that I had lying around… I certainly would not recommend you buy a drop cloth)
  • Plastic cups – yes disposable cups (to prop your cabinet doors on while you paint)
  • Smooth 2 Inch painters tape (1 Roll is probably enough)
  • Disposable gloves (to protect your hands) Dollar store is good for these.

 

 

Here is my Kitchen before I knew how to refinish kitchen cabinets!

refinish kitchen cabinets No Sanding!

I could not believe I did NOT have to SAND!!

 

This project took me about 3 days to complete…

I did it entirely 100% myself while my 2 year old napped, my 6 year old attended

school, and my husband was at work – and then I worked on it more when

the kids were in bed at night.

 

Here is my Schedule to completely refinish my cabinets in 3 days!

 

Day 1  –

Step 1 – I got my daughter playing with toys and removed every cabinet door from the hinges. I made sure that I knew exactly where they went my marking a paper and taping the paper to the newspaper that I laid the cabinet faces on so I would not get confused where they went.  As I removed the doors I completed STEP 1 – DEGLOSS before I laid them on their cups to dry waiting for the first base coat of paint.

 

Step 2 – Put my daughter to nap and the cabinet faces were ready to start painting on the base coat – I put my cabinets face down (so I started with the backside) and proped them up on 2-4 disposable cups. (the cabinets were laid all over my dining room floor, with newspaper under them to act as drop sheets)

Step 3 – My 2 year old is up from naps just as I finish the first coat on all the doors.. wow.. perfect timing… I make some supper, and when my husband comes home he bathes the girls and gets them ready for bed… and I get back to work. At this point I de-gloss my cabinet frames, including the white melamine ends of the island, and all the kickplates, and cupboard faces. While they are drying, I put the second coat of base coat on the cabinet doors. Now before heading to bed I paint my first coat of basecoat on the cabinet frames in the entire kitchen.

Its been a long day, but super productive!

 

Day 2 –

Step 1 – I flip my cabinet faces over early determined to get my first coat of base coat on before naptime – Success my 2 year old is watching Elmo! During naptime I finish painting the cabinet faces, and I also get the second coat of base coat on the entire cabinet frame.

 

Step 2 – After naptime my older daughter How to Refinish Kitchen Cabinets CHEAP!came home from school, and I had both my girls playing in their playroom, so I was able to get the second coat of base coat on the cabinet fronts.

Step 3 – After supper I was ready to start the sealant (as I was skipping the glazing step) I started sealing the cabinet frames first (as they had been drying the longest)  I flipped my cabinets to the backside, and did the sealant on the backside and that was it for the day.

 

Day 3 –

Step 1 – Flip the cabinet doors back to the front for their sealant coat. Paint on the sealant and wait 8 hours for them to dry! This is a good time to LEAVE THE HOUSE! 🙂  I knew if I stayed home I would be tempted to put the cabinets on too early… so I left and ran errands.

 

Just before supper I re-assembled all the cabinets, and drawer faces to the kitchen, and it was COMPLETE! A long 3 days but the result was stunning!

 

I LOVED Everything about my kitchen!! I loved that this ENTIRE LOOK was achieved for under $150!!

refinish kitchen cabinets no sanding!How Does this Process Hold up to Wear and Tear?

I tackled this project in December 2013.

I was hesitant to put it up on my website because I was not sure how the cabinets were going to hold up to a busy house with 2 young girls, and a pretty clean mom.

 

I am happy to say that they look as fabulous today, as the day I redid them… Its been over 10 months, and they still LOOK AMAZING!

In fact here is a picture from just a few days ago…

Since we have updated the kitchen we have also changed the light fixture over the sink.

If you want to get the same color we did, we used KONA as our color!

Click here to buy this box – Its under $80, and I used a small box for both my kitchen and the bathroom, and I have LEFTOVERS to do any touchups over the years!  It goes a long way!

 

I hope I have inspired you to take on your kitchen, or bathroom. I would love to see your before and after shots….

I definitely recommend taking before shots! I am kicking myself that I did not take a before of the bathroom!!

 

Have fun with your projects!

How to Get More Energy For Moms?

How To Get More Energy For Moms?

how to get more energy for moms

Hey Mom, you know the drill, kids are up, gotta get going, school starts early, kids want to play, kids need to eat, time to do laundry, time to clean bathrooms, time to drive this child to dance class, that one to karate, then off to swim lessons, gymnastics, skating lessons, go to the library grab some books…. and the list goes on and on!

A moms work is never done!

I know because I am one, and at best you can be on top of it all, but lets face it there is almost always something else you could do! As I age I find I have less and less energy to get things done. This winter season has been particularly hard! Being in Alberta, Canada its dark in winter by 5PM and doesn’t get light till about 8:30AM. I have found myself having to set an alarm so that I can make sure I am up by 7:15AM on school days (just in case by some stroke of greatness both my children are still sleeping). I drag my butt outta bed, and get going on my day. By the time its noon or shortly thereafter I am exhausted!

My local Starbucks sees me nearly every single day, and sometimes twice a day! Isn’t that crazy! So I know how you feel, I am living your life! Finding good sources of energy, that are not damaging to my body has become a real need for me… so I set out to see what the market place had to offer. I knew Starbucks, and other coffee laden drinks were not the healthiest option, and with all the bad press lately for commercial energy drinks, and energy shots, I have been leary of those, and I am not a fan of how chemical all the energy drinks I had tried tasted.

Have you heard of Verve?

lack of energy for mom

 

My sister in law who is also a mom (of 4), introduced me to a product called Verve. Its easy on the diet, being only 72 calories per serving, and it offers a natural caffeine source from the Guarana Seed. One can contains 80MG of slow release caffeine from this source. Being a person who likes to know what is in the products I am considering buying and consuming, I had to learn more about Guarana Seeds!

What is Guarana Seeds?

Guarana seeds come from the Guarana plant a native to South America. Studies have shown that the extract from the seeds can  increase mental focus, improve energy, enhance memory, boost metabolism, and help with the fat burning process. WOW I needed to look at this Verve product a lot more closely. These are all things that I would love help with!  Guarana seed isn’t a miracle cure by any means, but it does do a lot for the body. I grabbed a can of Verve from my sister in law, and tried it!

How Does Verve Taste?

Verve in a word tastes, great! At first taste I wondered if this was the kind of product that could replace my unhealthy sweet addiction to Startbucks! I loved how the Verve drink tasted, and I loved it more with everything piece of information I found out about it. The product contains a full 2 oz serving of Vemma (the company that makes Verve) which is their flagship liquid vitamin supplement. So not only does this drink provide more energy for moms, it also provides a full daily dose of vitamins! How cool is that?

How to Get More Energy and Increase Vitality with Verve?

Verve contains a full serving of vitamins that moms need to stay healthy and have energy! I knew I was on to something when I spoke to another friend of mine, who is just like us, a mom with kids, and suffers with a lack of energy. She tried the product and loved it! She wanted to know how to get more! I then suggested my friends nanny (who is 21, and drinks all kinds of energy drinks) try this… and compare to the other types of energy drinks she has tried. She reported it was the best tasting energy drink she had tried! Wow I thought. Everyone I have shared this with loves it., and it helps moms like us get more energy and increases our vitality with vitamins! Everything a mom could hope for, with one additional benefit! This may also increase my metabolism, therefore help me burn a few extra calories! Wow, I needed to open my mouth and share with others! One of the things I have loved about Verve is that the caffeine is slow release, so I am able to get the extra boost without the jittery feeling I sometimes get from Starbucks!

How can you get Verve shipped right to your door?

As I mentioned before Verve is a product by the company Vemma. To be a customer is absolutely free (no membership fees), and they offer this product to customers in over 50 countries. You can order yours today! 

Vemma offers a full 30 day empty bottle return policy… so you can try Verve risk free, if you don’t like it, how you feel taking it, or something, return the unopened cans, and get a refund. Simple as that!

Nucerity – Eye Effects 3 Product Review

Nucerity Pure – Eye Effects 3 Product Review!

 

Nucerity Eye Effects 3 Serum

 

 

 

Did you know that Nucerity Pure – Eye Effects 3 contains Argireline? Maybe you have never heard of this product, but it is being touted as Nature’s Botox, and this patented product by Nucerity has it as one of its active ingredients! Nucerity Eye Effects 3 is patented and targets the eye zone’s 3 critical signs of aging: crow’s feet, puffy bags, and dark circles.

 

What is Argireline?

This product is getting a lot of attention from the medical community including such influential medical personnel as Dr. Oz, dermatologists recommend. Argireline was first developed by Lipotec Co. in Barcelona, Spain as one of several Botox alternatives, specifically to be added to cosmetic bases such as gels, emulsions, and sera. Argireline works by limiting the amount of muscle contractions in the applied area by interfering in the “SNAP receptor complex”, an electrochemical reaction that controls muscle behavior. This reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles because the skin does not crease more than necessary.

How Does Nucerity Eye Effects 3 Work?

Eye Effects 3′s breakthrough science releases the super antioxidant lycopene to harmonize communication between skin cells to even out fine lines, puffiness, and dark circles. Combined with Argireline, “Nature’s Botox”, chamomile, hyaluronic acid, and witch hazel, Eye Effects 3 leaves the thin, fragile skin around the eyes hydrated and refreshed with radiant results.

 

Can I Get a Sample of Eye Effects 3 serum?

Eye Effects 3 Serum Samples

Nucerity does not offer sample sizes, with a product such as this, a person needs to use for several weeks to properly evaluate if there is a noticeable change, some will notice a visible difference in just a few hours, but since every one is different Nucerity does one better than just sending out samples! They offer you 30 days to try this product and see how it works for you! If you are not happy with how it works for you, get a refund of the purchase price. Nucerity stands behind its product. Buy it now – Shipping Nucerity products to all of these countries. Canada, United States, Mexico, Philippines, Taiwan, Japan, Hong Kong, Puerto Rico, Malaysia, Singapore, and Australia.

 

Try this product and let me know what you think. Always looking for your feedback.

Travel May Be Good For Your Heart!

Travel May Be Good For Your Heart!

Many People love to travel, however, in today’s tougher economic times, money is tighter, and many people are finding it increasingly difficult to make time, take time, or get time off work.

 

A global study by Expedia.com found that about a third of employed Americans usually do not take all the vacation days that they are entitled to, leaving an average of three days on the table.

 

It is unfortunate that so many people don’t take the time that is allotted to them. Several  Americans site their number one reason for not going on vacation as financial!

 

If plain old having fun, bonding with family, and reconnecting with a significant other are not good enough reasons to plan for that vacation in your finances, if you are a male, here is one more to consider.

Taking an Annual Vacation may be Good For Your Heart!

 

In a study, published in 2000, looking at 12,000 men over nine years who were at high risk for coronary heart disease. Those who failed to take annual vacations had a 21 percent higher risk of death from all causes and were 32 percent more likely to die of a heart attack. So get planning your next vacation.

 

How about Sleeping Better?

 

Even if you don’t have heart problems, a vacation of at least one week — and preferably two weeks to really unwind — can help you relax and sleep better. Mark Rosekind, president and chief scientist at Alertness Solutions, a scientific consulting firm, has worked with NASA pilots and astronauts on sleep issues.

 

In 2006, he was commissioned by Air New Zealand to see if he could scientifically measure the benefit of a vacation. He asked a group of 15 people who were flying from the West Coast of the United States to New Zealand for vacations lasting a week to 12 days to wear a wrist device that monitored quantity and quality of sleep — for three days before the trip, during the vacation and three days afterward.

 

They kept a sleep diary and took a vigilance test to determine how good their reactions were before, during and after the holiday.

 

The participants were also hooked up to a brain monitor during the 12-hour flight, and other variables, like health, jobs and gender were factored in. Here’s what he found.

 

After a few days on vacation — and it usually took two to three — people were averaging an hour more of good quality sleep. And there was an 80 percent improvement in their reaction times.

 

“When they got home, they were still sleeping close to an hour more, and their reaction time was 30 to 40 percent higher than it had been before the trip,” Mr. Rosekind said.

 

 

Check out this Video…. with some great tips to get vacationing


The Big Secret to Getting the Most Out Of Your Vacation…

 

The trick, these days when going on vacation, is not only to physically remove yourself from your normal routine, but mentally as well. Checking your iPhone every few hours or rushing to the nearest Internet cafe doesn’t cut it. It is vital that we disconnect and truly unwind! The quality time with those we are with will be better for it, you will be better for it, and so will your quality of sleep!

 

Plan A Vacation, and Take IT!

 

If your finances are holding you back, consider finding ways to earn additional income so you can enjoy that vacation with the kids, take your spouse on a romance retreat, or enjoy an adventure you have been wanting to pursue (hiking, white water rafting, dune buggy riding, fishing, etc). Please comment and share where your next vacation will be, why, and when you are going.
