me… on the nate berkus show!

Here it is! My clip on the Nate Show, which airs today! I can’t believe they posted it on the internet. So fortunate, because now I get to share it with you

And then here’s the behind the scenes holiday tips video (yes, my face is a little “glowy” aka sweaty):

I had to think of those on the spot, so maybe that’s why it’s a little scatter-brained. =)

Aaand, a guest blog on the Nate Show site about painting my cabinets (which you can read the complete works of that in a four volume set right here on my blog). Read it over there (or check out more details on my blog here).

Lastly (there’s more? I’m exhausted!) a photo gallery of quick weekend projects, also on the Nate Berkus Show website.

Whew! I think that’s about it! Check them out and see what you think. The whole thing was so much fun, I’d like to add some brief thanks to my family (for support and last minute childcare) my friends, you my readers and kind fellow bloggers and most of all my dear husband Matt (who is the backbone of the entire DIY operation). Love ya, hon.

And dear new readers from the Nate Show: Big Hello and welcome! We hope you’ll stick around and I’d love it if you introduced yourself (the comments are a perfect spot for that)… don’t be a stranger!

=) Rebekah

    Beautiful job on the Nate Show! You did a great job making your presentation. Question for you….what type of spray paint shop for the doors? Better yet, Who?

  • DIYAdmirer says:

    Hi Rebekah! I love love love your blog, especially your DIY posts. You inspire me and make me believe I can do anything myself, which is potentially very dangerous!

    I am in the midst of a project/disaster, but adore your kitchen cabinets and hope to get to mine eventually. One question I have is that my cabinets are laminate covering either MDF or some low grade pressed cardboard. I don’t think these can be refinished, right?

  • Stella says:

    Great job all the way around! You looked beautiful and your house and the studio showed wonderfully!

  • Claire says:

    Ditto Stella! It was awesome!

    Hi Rebekah! I saw your spot on the Nate Show and was so impressed by all the things you did in your house that I just had to find you. Thank goodness for Google! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Katie says:

    Hi Rebekah! I loved your segment on the Nate Show and you have many reasons to be house proud ๐Ÿ™‚ I am so glad I found your blog and have loved looking at your projects. Question…where did you find all of the glass door knobs you talked about on your tv segment? I love that idea with the black doors! What color paint did you use for your doors? Thanks so much!! Keep up the awesome work ๐Ÿ™‚

    You did AWESOME! You’re ready for your own show!

    Hi Rebekah,
    You and I have very similar tastes, I’m happy to say. I love what you did to the kitchen cabinets. I moved into a rental with those same honey oak cabinets that I hate! I have to admit that even though I love black, I was really afraid to paint them that color. I painted my doors black so I thought that it might have been a little much. But, after seeing how your’s came out, I’m going for it!
    Thank you for the inspiration.

    Your kitchen looks amazing!! i really want to paint my cabinets but am scared of the work and that it won’t looks as good! can you elaborate on the caulking step? where did you have to caulk? could you use wood filler if you aren’t so good with caulk?

  • Tara says:

    Hi Rebekah – I saw your segment on the Nate Berkus show and really loved what you have done with your house….just gorgeous! Especially the spray painted doors – what a genius idea. I’m looking to do the same to our dingy oak doors. Can you share whether you got that done at an auto spray shop or was it some other kind of spray shop? I’ve been googling spray shops in my area and there;s a ton of them so I was looking for a way to narrow it down.

    LOVED your stunning kitchen cabinet makeover. Would you consider sharing the paint colors you used and the finish? I’ve tried black before with less than stellar success because it was not “right” black. Can’t wait to try it!
