Painting Kitchen Cabinets! Check!!

Painting Kitchen Cabinets!  Check!!
Yes people, it’s true. I have finally finished painting my kitchen cabinets. It took a little longer than I expected but so worth it!! I know you all want to see pictures so here you go!

I chose to leave the doors off the cabinets above the microwave. The inside of the cabinet is painted the wall color (Brown Tepee). I put my most used cookbooks in there along with some accessories. I found the chicken at Hobby Lobby and it was 50% off. Woo hoo! I also put a metal pot (that got a coat of white spray paint) with a faux plant in it. It hides the electrical outlet and cord from the microwave. The basket was one of many that I already had.


Doesn’t it look so much better? I think the white cabinets look like they belong with the white trim and white doors. It also seems lighter and brighter. The stained cabinets seemed so “heavy”. The hardware also seems to stand out more against the white.



I’m still looking for a kitchen rug but haven’t found anything I like yet. I’d also like to change out the faucet to stainless steel. Then we have my lovely green laminate countertops. Some day, maybe, I’ll get new countertops but for now I’m stuck with the green.
Overall, I’m really happy with the way it turned out. 

If you’ve been thinking about painting your cabinets I say “GO FOR IT!!” It’s not hard to do – just time consuming. The end result is so worth it!

  1. Wow, great job! I love how light and bright it is now. How long DID it take to paint the cabinets? How did you do it?

    1. I would do some research about how to paint laminate, and then go for it – but definitely don’t go cheap on the supplies, you will want the best quality possible!
