The Kitchen Remodel Reveal
Here is what we had to work with during this kitchen project. The cabinets needed to be white but even the most magical white paint was not going to cover up the Dixie May western finish on these babies.  Q: What’s a girl to do?

A: Brainstorm with your incredibly ingenious husband. 
Ding, ding, ding. 
After?  How…
Dixie May, I would like you to meet your more attractive cousin. 
Oh, by the way, we won’t be seeing you anymore. 
Buh-Bye! (oh, and don’t let the door hit you on the way out!)
We decided to recycle our old cabinets by adding bead board and framing the doors.
Here is a side by side comparison of before and after. We love the results!
Subway tile (My favorite and the favorite of everyone who has any sense at all!)
Butcher block countertops 

We came in under $2000 on this project by recycling our cabinets and being selective with the products we used. Yeah, us!

Now, without further adieu,
here is the final kitchen reveal!

  1. Hi, I have your exact oak and can’t stand it. We had never considered painting white but now think it is what we should do!! Can you please tell me a little more about how you painted over the oak and added the bead board to the doors. It all looks so NICE! thanks

  2. I absolutely LOVE the cabinets with the beadboard it looks so clean an updated. I have the exact same cabinets in our house and I plan on doing exactly the same thing that you have done. I have a question though when you put the moulding on to frame in the beadboard, did you router the moulding so that the door would fit into it? Or did you just put it on top of the cabinet? I hope I am explaining myself clearly enough lol.
    Thanks so mcuh for sharing so much cheaper than refacing and just as nice if not nicer because you have more options of what to do with the doors.

    1. Chantal, I am not sure the guest poster will see this comment, in case they don’t there is a link to their blog at the top of the post, i am sure if you hop over there, they would love to help you out!

      Good Luck!
