    I just found this blog - great job. Such a difference. I really like the light/bright look without the hospital white. Thank you for sharing.

    Thanks Phyllis - It was one of the best decorating decisions I ever made. It was a big undertaking, but worth all the time and effort.

    HI Sara - It took me a few years of living with oak cabinets that I didn't like to get the energy to paint them. It took me 3 weeks to paint everything, but the time involved was so worth it. If you are thinking of painting your cabinets - go for it!

    Thanks Diane, I would like to redo my kitchen cabinets after I return from vacation. Thanks for the info about the framing of the cabinets & the gripper base for the paint. Wish me luck!

    Hi Joyce - It is not hard, just time consuming. Just take your time, use the best brush and a small foam roller with the rounded end and you will get pro results. Glidden Gripper and Sherwin Williams Pro Classic latex acrylic is a winning combo.

    Inspirational as I have similar layout and planning a complete re-do including a window seat like you have. Thinking of making an island instead of L shaped counter that cuts the room into. How wide is your kitchen, Diane H?
