All in the Paint: Paint Project Reveal Part One


I'll have to be short and sweet today, but I've got two fun photos to share.

As I mentioned, we've got Operation Paint Project going on here at our house. It will be a three stage process over the next few weeks: 1) the kitchen cabinets, 2) the breakfast room and 3) the adjoining dining room.

Today, I've got a fun before and after of Part One- the kitchen cabinet makeover! Phew. No one told me how difficult it is to paint cabinets! I'm hoping that it will make painting the walls a breeze, in comparison.

And it makes it really difficult when you are painting cabinets lime green! Ha. Only kidding. We actually took the cabinets from a dingy, off-white beige to a stark, bright white.

Ready for the big reveal? Voila!

Here's the not-so-white before (if only the picture could capture how dingy/yucky/not crisp and clean this color really is!).

And the oh-so-white after.

You'll also notice that we are getting rid of the orange/salmon/pink color that currently graces our kitchen walls (check out our House Tour for more pictures of this vivid kitchen/breakfast room color). Our "out with the salmon, in with the grey" theory is a huge part of Part Two, so get excited, because I certainly am! :)

So, what do you think so far?

  1. Very nice! Your kitchen looks very open now! Wanna come paint my cabinets now? haha.

  2. What a great transformation! I can see a little bit of difference in the cabinets but that paint color is fantastic! Totally transformed the room!
    Can't wait to see the rest!

  3. I think all your hard work paid off. Looks great!

  4. Thanks, ladies! Hopefully we can get a shot of the cabinets in the daylight today, so that ya'll can see the true difference between the colors. This picture was taken late last night... the hubs had to cover picture-taking duty since I didn't get home from work until almost 11:30 pm! Workin with what we have :)

  5. That looks beautiful and classy. I could have told you how awful cabinets are to paint! ;)

  6. Looks amazing! How was I not a follower before?!? I am now!

  7. You did such a great job. We painted cabinets in our townhome and it was soooooooo much work. Kudos to you. beautiful.

  8. Hi there- your cabinets look beautiful and the new paint is lovely! Great job!! :)

  9. You are making me sooooooooooooo jealous with this kitchen makeover. The crisp white is perfect and the white/grey combo is even perfect-er (that really is a word).

    My linoleum floors and original paint-chipped '50's cabinets are hideous.

    Did I mention that I am sooooo jealous?

    Can't wait to see more. :)

  10. your kitchen looks great! I'm in the process of painting my cabinets.

  11. It looks great! So fresh and airy. Glad I found your blog, it's so cute! I love the layout and colors (:

  12. Beautiful beautiful! I especially love the wall color you've chosen...I am so into gray right now. And it really makes the white cabinets pop! Wish I could paint my walls...I definitely use that shade:)

  13. Holy cow! It looks soooo good. And I'm a big fan of gray- soothing but not boring like beige can be sometimes. You must loooove it!!

  14. Nice color choice. Your kitchen looks so fresh now.


  15. You have such a classic kitchen, you lucky duck! The color is a huge change, I am sure!

  16. So beautiful Michelle!! It's a huge difference. I've heard painting cabinets is pretty tedious and looks like y'all pulled it off perfectly!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear what you think. I ♥ comments.
