Kate's Kitchen Cabinet Makeover (Cricut Imagine, Printable Vinyl, & Kate's Kitchen)

So I was finally able to complete a project today!

When I first got the Cricut Imagine I was so intrigued by using printable vinyl. Before the Imagine came out I never heard of it before, though I am sure it was out there. And once I saw the artwork for the Kate's Kitchen cart I knew I wanted to print and apply some of these images to my kitchen cabinets. This was such an easy way to decorate and add a personal touch to our apartment.

The images on this cart are beyond cute. Reminds me of the 50's, and I love the retro look. I cut these various images anywhere between 6 - 6 1/2 inches on the Imagine. I worried that they may bleed if they got wet, always a concern in the kitchen. So I used SuperSeal Spray from Creative Imaginations. It worked well and did not smudge the printed design. The bottle states it is inkjet safe. I got a little sloppy with the spraying because I was working in a small indoor space, so there are some little bubbles on some of the prints. I have used this spray before and works well when you can spray outside, but with the blizzard we got in the city over the last day I can barely open my door and step outside, lol.

Here are a bunch of pics of the project.

I really love how this came out and so glad I got a project done that I have been meaning to do for awhile. It took me awhile to find the Kate's Kitchen cart and find time to do the project all at once. But one good thing about a blizzard you can stay home and get some stuff done, lol.

Thanks for stopping by and please comment and become a follower if you like. Till next time!
