I had originally bought a style called Fagerland which I then painted. And I was lazy and painted in latex rather than oil. So it just has not held up well and our kitchen is looking decidedly shabby. Not at all chic.
So I needed to find another IKEA door that was paint-able and when I Googled that this kitchen was the first I found. They used Tidalholm style doors and you can not tell this is an IKEA kitchen!
It's just gorgeous:
|Old Farm House with IKEA painted cabinets|
|Shot of the Domsjo sink - same one as I have!|
|This is another kitchen I found online that used Tidalholm Painted Cabinets as well - and what I love about this kitchen is the toe kick. I will be copying that!|
Amazing. However, since I dragged my feet on this IKEA has since discontinued the Tidalholm door style. PULL MY HAIR OUT. sigh. And then through the lifesaving miracle of the internet I found this American company in North Dakota that makes CUSTOM doors for IKEA cabinets. Amazing! They are Scherr's Cabinet and Doors, INC in Minot, North Dakota.
So I browsed their web site and found this simple shaker door style. And they gave me a quote with the doors pre-primed and ready for me to paint! I would have had them paint them, but they use Sherwin Williams Paints and I couldn't risk trying to translate my Benjamin Moore Cameo White. Can you imagine ordering it all having it arrive and having the color be off? So I will save myself some money and just paint them myself in OIL.
I am keeping the Fagerland Doors on our center island and painting the center island a dark antique black. Have to research that color today!
