    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.

    The cabinets look cream colored, not white, in definite contrast to your white appliances. Just sayin'.

    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?

    @Karen Rossman Clark - My kitchen is 13' wide and 20' long. The island is 26" x 62"

    Whahoo! Mine is 22 long and 14 wide! The layout is almost exactly what you have. I am cutting a piece of 26" x 62" butcher paper or tape the space off and put it in place to see how I can move around it. I am so dern visual that I have to almost chew up

    In the planning stages for my kitchen makeover, I was thinking of using bead board on the doors and frame it.....I have a very small kitchen that can not be enlarged unless we could add on, due to major (as in we can't do) plumbing issues we won't be

    Hi Lisa - Framed bead board will look great on the doors. It sounds hard but with a good miter saw is a very do-able project.
