Kitchen Makeover

We just finished painting our kitchen cabinets and oh my word did it transform our kitchen! Here are the results:

First, here is a closer look at the top-quality cupboard doors we’ve been living with the past year and a half.

The two-tone wood look….a hot mess

Here is what the kitchen looked like when we toured the home.

Days after buying it, while we were laying on the beach in Maui, we had my dad and bro-in-law, tear out the upper cabinet, closest in this picture. That opened the kitchen up tons….but still ugly.

And here it is with its new white paint:

We may get new (dark) counter tops some day. But for the time being, we’re digging the white. Our house tends to be kind of dark and having a white kitchen has REALLY helped lessen this.

*I’m noticing that kitchen rug looks out of place. It matched better with the old cupboards and it matches the large area rug and colors we have in our nook area that you can’t see in these pictures!!

Hands down, my favorite thing about this house when we bought it was the highly-saturated forest green beadboard in the kitchen nook. My favorite part about it all is that the previous owners thought it would look really cool if they “extended” the look and painted half of the flimsy 1980s plywood door the same color! Ha!!! I will always laugh about this. So, you can imagine my excitement to toss the door and paint over that horrible color with a fresh white.


Lots going on


p.s. we painted the beadboard shortly after moving in but I hadn’t posted pics yet!

Fun times! More before-and-after pictures of other projects to come.

  1. Wow! What a difference!! Looks really really nice..thanks for posting pics! Oh and who’s that cute little girl with the chunky booty?? 🙂

  2. It’s a total transformation. It looks SO nice. It really is absolutely amazing what a difference paint can make. A few more things too, but really…it just looks fabulous my darling! I love (or don’t love) the way that “chunky bootied” girl is already big enough to stand there with the cupboard door in hand.

  3. Liz, You’ve done a beautiful job. So great to be able to imagine how something will look when redone. Talk about an improvement!
