Farmhouse Kitchen Makeover

2 Materials
Painting your dated and worn cabinets is a sure fire successful makeover! Revamp your kitchen for under $200!!
Before!
I started by sanding and priming. I chose a cabinet paint from Valspar at Lowe's.
After!
I had to do two coats of primer and three coats of paint to achieve the sparkly white I wanted...but I love the results!
We took down a cabinet, added open shelving.
We changed out the faucet to farmhouse style one and added wooden blinds.
New faucet!
I cleaned up my mess and now we have a new kitchen!
If you've wondered about painting your cabinets I'd say go for it! It took me about three weeks, I set up a paint station in the garage and just wrapped my paint brushes each night in a plastic bag stored in the refrigerator so I didn't need to wash them every night.
Make sure to number your doors and drawers to ensure they'll fit when you're finished.
This has been my favorite DIY project to date!

Suggested materials:

  • Valspar cabinet paint.   (Lowe's)
