Kitchen Update


I had a large, but very country kitchen in a house that is much more eclectic cottage. My husband and I talked about the update for a very long time and finally got it done!

    Need someone to tell me if I can paint my "laminate" cabinets? If so, what kind of paint?

      @Mary , yes you can. Just be sure to paint them with a good coat of primer. We use Kilz2.

    I am so glad you got rid of those boarders..and I love the Pentacle in the window..what a great idea. I love the eclectic look of your kitchen, clean, comfy and less purely a "kitchen" and more a great living space that is a kitchen.
