White Kitchen Reveal

I have been dreaming of a white kitchen for years. Our previous kitchen was over 20 years old and definitely in need of some updating. With some fresh paint, new countertops and a few minor updates, we have a brand new, modern kitchen that I love!
#ModernKitchen
We had our cabinets painted with Simply White by Benajamin Moore. The cabinets were taken out to be sprayed and had a total of 6 coats with the primer and paint. You can no longer see the wood grain and they are super easy to wipe clean.
There was a lot of debate as to what surface we were going to go with for our kitchen countertops, but we finally decided on quartz due to its durability and look. After a bit of a mix-up in the colors, we ended up with Stone Grey quartz from Caesarstone. It ties in nicely with the grey in the marble subway tile backsplash that we chose.
For a little comparison, here is a photo of the kitchen BEFORE.
We are definitely happy with the end result!

    Great job!! I have painted many cabinets over the past 20 years but always by hand. I've never tried using a sprayer. Even if I did try it, I'd probably still prefer doing it by hand because painting, whether furniture, walls or cabs, is relaxing to me.

    I love your new look. I am dying to do mine. They are oak and I heard oak doesn't take paint too well...would make my kitchen look so much better.

    Great job and looks really nice. I have an oak kitchen and I know white is the new look for kitchens but I'll never give up my oak.

    Great make-over. The cabinets were not so great, so I am glad that you painted them. The counter top with the tile back-splash and white cabinets make this kitchen come alive. The black table gives "stability" to the area and the skirted Parson's Chairs

    I love your kitchen and would like to hear more about how you did the cabinets. We have beautiful, custom honey-stained wood cabinets, but I too am desiring a whiter and brighter space, but I am afraid of messing it up and then not being able to go back!
