Our Kitchen Cabinet Makeover

4 Days
Brent and I had considered hiring someone to professionally paint our kitchen cabinets. After reading blog after blog on how to paint kitchen cabinets and discovering a painting technique that was equivalent to mine, I thought maybe I could just do it myself but I was still hesitant… Then, after friends of ours painted their kitchen cabinets, I was inspired to just do it! Deciding on a colour for the cabinets was tough enough. I’ve always loved white kitchens and I still do, but with the kitchen finishes we have, bright white cabinets wouldn’t flow as naturally. Here’s my original kitchen vision back in March. Grey was my other option and ended up being the winner. The hard part was deciding if we should go light or dark– you can view my grey kitchen round-up here! With a good balance of both light and dark, we settled for Chelsea Gray by Benjamin Moore in their Advance line.

I decided to change out the bottom drawer pulls (which used to be the same as the cabinet pulls) to some cup pulls. It has really completed the look of our kitchen, feeling more “farmhouse” with an up-scaled appearance!

We love our bench seating, it's been great for the kids and gives us more room around the table.
