Boring to Blue Kitchen Makeover


It took two months of nap time painting sessions to take our kitchen from boring builder grade basic to blue and white. The upper cabinets were painted white and the lowers a dark blue. Now when I change my mind (which I do often) I only have to paint the bottom cabinets for a whole new look. Added a flea market shelf above the sink, switched out the light to one I found at the ReStore and spray painted. Added wood corbels from Home Depot. And updated the faucet to a gooseneck faucet from Overstock.

    I actually prefer your white appliances over stainless. You did an amazing job! I love how colorful and happy It is. It must be a joy to prepare meals in this kitchen.

    This is probably the most creative and unusual kitchen makeovers i have ever seen. Your eye for detail and placing the cutest design elements (curtains, plates and collection of objects, lighting etc) is just wonderful. What an inspiration! Getting so sick of the same kitchen make-overs ... this is great!
