Kitchen Cabinets Makeover

YAY! Our kitchen redo is almost over!!! My favorite part of the redo was painting the cabinets white. If I must I will show you a before picture of the kitchen :)


we started the makeover by taking all of the cabinet doors off and sanding down every single part of the cabinets. We then started to prime all of the cabinets. Once the primer dryed we started with our SUPER white paint. We put two coats on all of the cabinets. I had a blast painting the doors late at night while I watched my soap All My Children...I heart TIVO!!


Once the painting was finally done YES!! we put all the knobs and handles on the doors and oohhh la la Our brand new kitchen cabinets are finally done :) it only took us two months!

All that is left to add to our new kitchen is the butcher block counter tops that I want soooo bad...hopefully soon!!!

  3. Thanks girls for stopping by and checking us out!! Can't wait to stop by and say hi! Have a great weekend!!

  4. Love this! I HAVE to do this to my cabinets. One question though; my cabinets are not wood but some kind of formica. Would the steps work as well? Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  5. Great transformation, I love how bright it looks :)

  6. Wow! So lovely!! You did a wonderful job. Well done.

  12. Boy, that is some transformation! I love it! The grey on the walls is so perfect with the white cabinetry. I can see why you are so happy!!

    Best wishes,

  13. Those look great!! Lots of work but totally worth it!

  14. Just visiting from the POP party! Wow, what a lot of work for a fab result. I wish my cabinets were timber so I could transform them like you have. I posted a farmhouse table makeover, I'd love to hear what you think of it. Feel free to drop by if you have time.

  15. What a beautiful transformation! I LOVE the white cabinets and the blue wall. I need to to this to my kitchen too, hopefully this summer. Thanks for coming to the party and inspiring me with your beautiful kitchen.

  16. visiting from POPP - great work - i love a white kitchen. It's my dream, not there yet. one day :)

  17. They look great. I like the white so much better. You might consider some crown molding on the top. It would look great!

  18. White kitchens are my absolute fav! Looks great!

  19. It looks beautiful and Im loving the wall color! we did a similar makeover on our kitchen.

  20. WOW! Your hard work certainly paid off! It looks amazing! So bright and just can't beat white cabinets :)

    Thanks for linking up at my Tuesday Talent Show!

  21. wow this looks great! It is a lot of work, but it is certainly worth it! Thanks for linking up at Love to see you again this sat!

  22. That looks FAN-Tastic! I'm dreading, yet so looking forward to painting my cabinets white... I guess painting while watching your shows would make it much more enjoyable. Thanks for sharing at the POPP.

  23. Love it....I painted mine black and then distressed them....they were pickled YUCK and I was so happy to get rid of that pink color and the faux marble laminant counter top! I will have to post pictures soon. Can't wait to see the butcher block countertops.

  24. I love it. We have white cabinets, too, and sometimes it feels dated, but I love the lightness and brightness of the room. I rarely turn on the lights, at least not until the sun goes down. I love how the white cabs reflect the natural light so well! Great job on the painting.
