Kitchen Remodel

Kitchen Remodel

Kitchen Before

Kitchen After

I found a house that I loved, especially the location, but the kitchen was in desperate need of an update.  I found a bunch of DIY projects on Pinterest, tried them out, and I have to say, I love the results.  I wasn't sure about painting cabinets, but I couldn't afford to replace them and I hated how they looked, so with about $100 worth of paint and some elbow grease, I am happy to report it wasn't that hard.

Prime the cabinets with a good primer

The most important part of the painting project was to get a good primer that did not require sanding.  It was a little expensive, but so worth it.

I spray painted all of the cabinet hardware and the bar stools

I also took the doors off the cabinets above the microwave and painted the light fixture and door as well.


  1. Next, you should totally paint the table and chairs to match your bar stools. I just saw Leone's table that was oak and she painted it black and distressed the edges. It looks awesome! :-)

    1. You are so right. The table is on my hit list in the spring:)
