Before and sort of After -- Kitchen

Since i've moved in i've hated all the white and my kitchen was the next project in line. Although I would have loved to go to a kitchen cabinet store and picked out a brand new set of cupboards it wasn't in our budget at all....so I figure, why not try painting them. So after much hole filling, sanding, priming and painting I am so excited with the results. Now we will be painting the white walls to add a little more color and we should be done for awhile....yeah, like I won't find another project to take my mind off the adoption in no time...lol So here is the before and after shot. What do you think?


I do realize there is one door missing in this picture but once i'm done with the wall painting i'll add the finished pictures. For now, I couldn't wait to share. All I need now are beautiful new stainless steel appliance (not going to happen) !!

the cupboards look GREAT! Did you use melamine paint?

Oh and if you like the metal look for a backsplash I have used these in kitchen renos... twice... and they are very easy and turn out really well. You could get some of the stainless look w/out the big bucks for appliances. :)

Looks fantastic!!! I am not a fan of white cupboards either. Just think about how well the dark will hide those little fingerprints when there is a child running around!

Can't wait to see it all finished!
