From green to a dream- our kitchen cabinets get painted!


We needed to get rid of the green wood cabinets, so bad!
Painting the walls was step one.

We opted to paint the trim around the windows to match the wall for two reasons: There just wasn't enough space between it and the cabinets to have it be white, and the trim around the two windows was different on each (new vs old).

      Our cabinets were not Laminate, they were plywood and therefore no special prep/paint was needed to get the paint to stick. We used Behr PREMIUM PLUS paint after 2 coats of primer after a light sanding to get everything ready.

    Nice improvement. Tight space or not, the white window trim in the first pictures brightened the space over the sink.

    I am curious as well about how much sanding was involved, what type of paint etc.?
