My Kitchen Revealed
This project took me three months. I had to take all the cabinets off (obviously), but I only did one section at a time.
I lightly sanded the doors and bases, cleaned them well, did two coats of primer, and then painted them with 2-3 coats of white kitchen paint. I soaked all the handles and hardware, gave them a good scrubbing, and then painted them with black spray paint.
I do LOVE the white cabinets and I'm so happy with how they turned out. I have already cut backerboard for the backsplash and have started on the stained glass mosaic, which I'm excited about.
However, the turquoise color on the wall isn't exactly what I envisioned. It's way brighter than I wanted. I know I can always paint over it, but I was hoping I would get used to it.
Tell me the truth (it won't hurt my feelings). What do you think of the turquoise paint?
Oh, and just in case you're wondering, I spent less than $100 on everything. I would love a brand new $20.000 kitchen makeover, but this will do. :)
