Gray and White Kitchen Makeover
by Megan of LoveLee Homemaker
My name is Megan and my husband and I are first-time homeowners. We bought our house three years ago and have been slowly updating it. The previous homeowners had updated the kitchen but chose colors and products that weren’t our taste. Everything seemed to be the same orange-y hue which made the kitchen seem dark and heavy. Here’s the before:
My husband disassembled all the cabinets- labeling each piece of trim and door. After sanding every piece and all cabinet bases, he wiped them down with a de-glosser to remove any grease or dirt. Next came a layer of primer, followed by 2-3 coats of the satin finish paint color. It was a long process but a necessary one to withstand the kitchen’s constant use. We decided to go with a solid color Corian countertop to compliment the large patterned backsplash that we continued all the way to the ceiling. The full wall of tile really makes it an accent wall that can be seen all the way into the living room. Lastly, we had hardwood floors put in to really warm up the space. The entire kitchen makeover took about 6 weeks to complete since my husband did most of the work himself.
- We used Benjamin Moore Advance finish coat on cabinets (made specifically for cabinets).
- Our countertops are
LG High Max from Home Depot.
The backsplash is Hex Milk tile from The Tile Shop.
The floors were purchased/put in by a local business.
Thanks for sharing with us, Megan! What a great space transformation and a great way to use a summer off!
