A wee kitchen makeover
I recently helped my mother-in-law to makeover her kitchen. She wanted to brighten up the space but without going through a major kitchen renovation.
Here’s a shot of the before …
The cabinetry was in very good condition but it was a light oak colour and was in need of a facelift. So …. we had it painted in a creamy white colour – Benjamin Moore’s Marscapone (AF-20).
What a difference right from the beginning!
She wasn’t in a huge hurry to complete the project so we selected finishes as we went and looked at them in the context of the painted cabinets.
We added new hardware to the cabinets …
And put in a new countertops, under-counter lighting and travertine backsplash (she didn’t have backsplash before).
And here it is! She is very pleased with the finished kitchen.
We still have to finish painting her kitchen table & chairs … but that’s a project for when the weather is cooler and we don’t want to spend time outside!
So, what do you think? Have you had success painting cabinetry to refresh a space?
