When it comes to kitchen cabinet painting ideas many people stick with the standard white, cream, or black colors. Any other colors seem to be intimidating and hard to visualize.
Edie from Life in Grace shows us that you do not have to be scared of color! If someone said to me I am going to paint my cabinet a turquoise blue, I would be really curious how that was going to turn out. But I love the look of cottage style kitchens.
Let me just say her kitchen…..turned out FABULOUS! It just screams “I’m a happy kitchen, let’s bake some cookies and sit down and have a chat”!
“Here’s a photo of the cabinets before. And although the results look dramatic it’s all cosmetic changes.”
You truly can make a dramatic difference with paint! If you are willing to work hard, and take a chance you can save a ton of money!
Primer and sanding are key when it comes to painting previously stained wood. This is not the fun part! But, if you want to bake a cake, you have got to break a few eggs.
Do not skip this part of your project. I cannot stress enough the importance of doing the correct “prep” work. Proper priming and sanding insures the durability and longevity of your paint.
This was my kitchen when I first laid eyes on it. If ever there was a kitchen in need of some kitchen cabinet painting ideas, this one was it!
So much better! Painting kitchen cabinets is not for the faint of heart. But, if you are looking to save money and don’t mind tackling your own DIY project, painting your kitchen cabinets will make a world of difference.
