Kitchen Cabinet Makeover: Before and After

August 13, 2012

Our kitchen cabinets are finally complete! And I couldn't be happier. Our kitchen is so much brighter and fresh looking. We still have some more projects (granite counter tops, new back splash, new sink and faucet, and painting the walls) but it's a start!

First, here's a reminder of what they looked like before:

And now:

The paint is Simply White by Benjamin Moore. We hired someone to paint them for us...and since I'm 9 months pregnant it was worth every penny! We also got all new cabinet pulls from Lowe's that I love. I think the walls might look good painted a greenish, blue color, but haven't decided yet. I can't wait for my kitchen to be done! If you are thinking of going white, go for it!

  27. I'm so glad you posted this! We have very dark brown (almost black) kitchen cabinets...thank you 70's original decor, haha, and I've been planning in my mind whether to paint or just get new. I'm thinking painting may be the route to go! However I would also want to hire someone. Do you mind me asking what the labor costs were for the painter? Obviously you bought the paint....but I just know my skills wouldn't be nearly as good as a professional!

  29. OHHHH MYYYYY GOOOOOSHHH, your kitchen looks ahh-maazing. Normal pregnant momma's get a nursery together in 9 months, but rock star momma's knock out the nursery AND a kitchen re-do! I love the white, it was definitely the right choice!

  37. I love it! And the granite is gorgeous! That was my number one project in our house as well - we had too much oak for our taste.
