Our Kitchen Cabinet Transformation

 

My husband and I bought a house this past July.  It was one of those situations where as soon as we pulled into the neighborhood we KNEW (well, at least I knew) that this was definitely the house for us.  The neighborhood was full of Victorian styled homes, and the house itself was full of character.  I fell so completely in love as soon as we walked through the front door.

 

 

That being said, the house needed A LOT of work.  The walls were full of dents and holes, and the paint job was pretty terrible (paint & stains on the ceilings, uneven paint lines, paint all over the trim, and multiple stickers & pieces of painter’s tape had been left on the walls in many rooms and the old owners had just painted over them).

The kitchen was a space in the house that we just didn’t like any part of it.  We didn’t like the color on the walls, the window treatments, the color of the granite counters, and we especially did not like how the cabinet color and the floor color was essentially the same.  It just wasn’t our style at all.

We soon decided that tackling this kitchen was going to be a top priority once we moved in.  We decided to have the wooden floors refinished, repaint the walls, and to paint the cabinets white (in hope that once we made all of those changes we would grow to love our counter tops).

We researched how to paint to paint cabinets online, and we also called a lot of different paint stores to hear opinions and advice.

  1. Love the colors you chose! Have you thought about adding a backsplash to reflect a little light? Also painting your window a contrasting color would make it pop. Gorgeous job!

    • I have actually been DYING to do a backsplash! The previous owners of the house left a lot of white subway tiles in the basement so I think I am going to use those with a decorative inset of something else. I also want to repaint the island to give it a pop of color and add some under cabinet lighting. The projects never end!
