Making progress

Something I have always wanted is white cabinets, so for my birthday I asked if I could paint our kitchen cabinets.  So for the past week and a half I have been painting and painting and painting.  It has taken me 5 coats to completely cover them and that is using the Behr paint plus primer!  This last weekend my husband added crown molding to the tops of the cabinets.  It looks so much better!

I wanted the walls to be a soft true gray and to say that it has been frustrating picking the perfect gray color is an understatement.  I have gone through four different colors trying to find the right color, one looked lavender, the other was to dark and one just looked white. Finally I think I found the perfect color, here is where we are today.  Please excuse the mess and the poor lighting, I only have the upper cabinets painted but I will be working on the lower cabinets this week:)

How do you like my tupperware Amy?  I definitely need to work on that cupboard:)

I still need to add a second coat of paint on the walls and I have a few more goodies in mind for the kitchen.  This is sort of where my brain is going.

  2. You are inspring me. I know how busy you are and you seem to get so much accomplished. You know that painting our cabinets white has been on our list for a while, your cabinets look great so far.

  3. Wow! What a transformation! It is gonna look awesome when it is all said and done. Wish I was there to help. I kind of like the open cabinet look, too. Like the far left one looks great as a shelf. Anyways, can't wait to see the finished product!


  4. There is something so perfect about a white kitchen. Love the gray - it's such a tricky color, isn't it? Your shade is perfect - not drab, but bright! So far, so good!


Always happy to hear from you!
