I am so thrilled our white kitchen is done now! Although there was nothing wrong with our stained oak cabinets, it's not what I wanted so I took the plunge and had them painted. And I've
never looked back. :) The part I most love is that the grain doesn't show through and the cabinets are incredibly smooth. I can't say I would have gotten those same results if I DIY'd it. Our new countertops are also laminate! They look amazing and I can't believe how much it really looks like granite. People are definitely fooled. :) To see more of our kitchen makeover with a complete source list and TONS of after pics, visit my post. http://www.decorchick.com/white-kitchen-make...
My husband and I have been working on remodeling our kitchen for what seems like forever! We aren't 100% finished (still need updated lighting and would like to re-do the floors) but we
are at a good stopping point. I love the way it has turned out, we took it from an outdated, bland, builders grade kitchen to an cheerful updated one for just $1600! We raised the top cabinets to the ceiling and added open shelving underneath to get rid of that awkward wasted space above the cabinets. We also planked the walls, painted the cabinets, did butcher block countertops, and an undermount basin sink.
