Drum roll please...I'm finally posting about the painted kitchen cabinets! :) This will mostly be a picture post and I'll be back soon with a tutorial on exactly how we painted the cabinets, what products we used, and the whole process. But for now, just enjoy these pics. :) Oh, and you can scroll to the bottom to see some VERY before pics of our kitchen before we got new counters and wood floors. I've never shown those on the blog before. :)
Edited to add: You can now click HERE to see the full tutorial explaining how we painted our cabinets with lots of pictures and all the products we used.
We still have to replace the back splash with white subway tile, but for now, here's a look at the new white cabinets...
We've replaced almost all our appliances in the past few years and chose to stick with white. Maybe we're just rebels or something, but I just really still love white appliances. :)
There were literally like 147 shades of white paint, but I think the one we chose matches our appliances pretty well.
I might just love the furniture feet we added more than the cabinets themselves!
After we finished painting the cabinets, my hubby said it looked a little "vanilla" and plain. So I switched out the white wire basket for this one and added some cookbooks, my colorful measuring cups, and some bright cupcake liners in a jar to brighten things up a bit.
I also switched around the tops of the cabinets. I just shopped the house for "new" things to put up there.
I used to have a big chalkboard next to the birdcage below. I finally retired it and moved the iron piece and vase over here.
I can't wait to show y'all how easy it was to add the feet to the cabinets. I think it only cost about $36 for the whole project! I just think it adds so much to the cabinets. Kinda makes them look more expensive or something.
This is the buffet in the breakfast area. I made a small change on here too.
And here it is...I added some Dollar Tree berries to my Target Dollar Spot IKEA knock off planter. Love how it looks now!
Here's a close up of the paint. We're really happy with how it turned out. I'll try to get the painting tutorial up soon. I also plan on doing an updated post in about 6 months and another one in about a year to let you know how well they've held up. So far, so good. :)
Now here's an old pic of what my kitchen looked like before we got new counters and wood floors. I've never shown these before.
White laminate counters and white linoleum floors. :)
Here's the same view right after we got the new counters and wood floors. This was about the time I realized I really wanted to paint the cabinets white. I didn't mind them so much when we had white counters and floors, but with the wood floors, it just seemed to be too many conflicting wood colors or something. There were too many shades of brown with the cabinets, counters and floor.
And finally how it looks today. I think the white cabinets help to break up the brown counters and floors. Next up...replacing the back splash with white subway tile. :)

Whew! That was a long post! I'm so glad to have all that painting behind me. It was a lot of work, but totally worth it. :) If y'all have any questions, feel free to leave me a comment and I'll answer them. :)
Thanks for visiting and I hope you all have a wonderful day!
