Painted Kitchen Reveal!

3 Materials
I wanted to brighten up my kitchen. My cabinets were a yellow based cream and and I really wanted a brighter white. I decided to paint the cabinets and wall to give my kitchen a subtle change for the better.
Here is the "before" pic of my kitchen. The cabinets were a yellowy cream and the walls were a bluish gray.
I used a brighter white. Here you can see the difference between the original color and the paint color. It is subtle but really makes a difference. The process is in my post on the blog! It's pretty simple - two coats of paint, topcoat.
I painted the bottom cabinets in a color called Millstone. I like how the bottom cabinets are a different, darker color.
Here you can see the difference between the top and bottom cabinets. The room gets great light and the cabinets really look great in the sunny room.
The tile backsplash ties in nicely with the two toned cabinets.
I also am happy with how it flows into our dining room. I painted the bottom of the chair rail in both the dining room and the kitchen in Benjamin Moore Cloud White.
The wall color is Sherwin Williams Accessible Beige. It's one of my favorite colors! The breadbox is from England and belonged to my great aunt.
This little cabinet was a vintage find that I painted in blue and it's perfect for kitchen storage. Midnight Blue Farmhouse Cabinet Makeover
My table was also a thrift store find that I refinished and stained in a whitewash and gray wood stain. Whitewashed Farmhouse Table
