My Kitchen Makeover: White Painted Cabinets

Hi all!  I am super excited to share this post with you all! 

For years I've been dreaming of having white painted cabinets in my kitchen.  I finally did it and now I LOVE MY NEW KITCHEN!

It's so light, bright and clean looking and I love that!

 Here are the before photos:

and this here is what my kitchen looks like now:

I hired a professional to spray the doors and I painted all the rest in Farmhouse Paint in Creamy Linen color. We color matched the creamy linen color for the doors and cabinet faces. I would have preferred to hire the entire thing out and have everything sprayed, but it was a bit too expensive, so I chose to go this route.

Because I wanted a cleaner look in my kitchen, and we weren't changing our backsplash, I had my husband cut a board that fits perfectly inside the square tile area behind my cooktop.  I painted it with chalkboard paint and then I painted the established year on it. This is the year that my husband and I got married.

If you want to see more of that kitchen command center on the side of my fridge, you can find the post here.

The island lights are from Lowes.  The barstools are from Pier One. (You can find the links at the bottom of this post.) I totally lucked out on the bar stools. I found 2 that had some damage on them and I got them for more than 75% off!! I was so super excited about this deal!

Those adorable large mason jars on the counter are from Walmart.  I filled them with flour, sugar and powdered sugar. I love the look of these!!

The topiary is from Ikea.

I also made the "As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord" sign.

I may still add a burlap roman style curtain.

Here are the before and after photo's side by side:

It's amazing what some paint, new bar stools and light fixtures can do to change the look of a space.

I love. love. love the new look in my kitchen! The brightness just makes me happy and this kitchen is definitely more me!

  1. So pretty! It looks so much brighter! I love how you improvised with the sign on the tile. Great idea, and super cute too!

  2. I love your kitchen!! We want to remodel our kitchen but we don't have $20k for that so we have talked about painting our cabinets, changing out the hardware on them, taking down the wallpaper (someone put it up before we moved in) and painting the walls. Your kitchen remodel totally makes me want to start on that project today. Although I did just finish hanging all my posters in our kitchen yesterday since we also use our kitchen as our school room. =)

  3. I just love your new kitchen, such a difference. Glad for you. Do you care to tell me the name of your granite, I have having the hardest time choosing. Paula in KY

    1. I wish I knew what my granite is called. It was installed over 8 years ago and I can't recall the name of it. sorry.

  4. love this! I messaged you on FB to see how the farmhouse paint worked for you on cabinets:) looks amazing

    1. Thanks Sharla, I just responded to your message on Facebook.

  5. It's crazy what a difference a fresh coat of paint makes. It looks much more expensive!
