Updating builder grade kitchen cabinets Free adult webcamroulette
Check her out – she’s been shooting our family photos for years now, and is branching out into commercial photography as well. Kelly was looking for something more modern (like she is), and was “over” the red.
Not to mention that she is is my go-to girl for photography tricks of the trade. The style of the kitchen just didn’t mesh with her personal style, and she wanted a cleaner, more contemporary look. We had the cabinets built up to the ceiling and trimmed out with crown molding.
This reveal has been a long time coming, but I’m sure you’ll find that it was worth the wait!
I know many people struggle with what to do with their builder grade oak cabinets, and this kitchen project is proof positive that you can make big changes without crushing the budget.
The plan is to eventually put dark hardwood floors throughout much of the main floor, and upgrade the countertops, appliances and backsplash as well (with penny tile).
But the great thing is that the floor and counter will work in the meantime since they both have gray in them – a nice interim solution.
I used the Benjamin Moore Advance paint, like I did in my own kitchen redo (because it’s awesomely revolutionary). Or, give me a call, because I’m starting to take on these jobs for clients!
They’re just what this space needed to bring it into the 21st century! Yes, the name is somewhat unappealing, but the color is remarkable! It’s still a sunny and inviting kitchen – not at all dark or drab. And let’s not forget the transformation with the wall color – don’t you love it? You can even see her faux roman shades (ala another Target tablecloth) in this shot. Huge difference with that alone, and it definitely takes “builder grade” out of the equation.The cabinet color is White Dove, by Benjamin Moore. – I’m also guest posting today over at Just a Girl – hop on over and take a peek!
I ended up going back and following my own kitchen cabinet painting tutorial for much of this, but will be back with additional detail and some tips and tricks in dealing with oak cabinets, since they were a bit trickier than my own maple ones.
Kelly is a photographer, so I have to give her major snaps for providing me with some gorgeous photos.
