Since my cry for help for ideas for my kitchen, I've been busy with my cabinets. So far I've primed and painted the base of the cabinets. The doors are a whole other story. I must admit that I dread painting cabinets or anything for that matter because I'm something like a perfectionist. I sand, paint, sand, and paint again. And if I see a flaw after all that guess what? Yeah, I'll start the process over. So I have been taking my precious time with these doors. It's been so hot her in Atlanta lately that I tend to stay away from my kitchen and head to the garage and turn the fan on. I know it sounds crazy to go from air condition to the out doors, but it seems like my garage is a little cooler. Anyway..... Here are a few pictures of the progress
This is what it look like when we moved in. The walls were a honey mustard color and the cabinets were almost the same color.
This is just another view of my very small kitchen.
The lighting has to be replaced with something a little more up to date
I will be painting this table the same color as the cabinets and I've found some shield back chairs at a furniture consignment shop that would work better.
This wall will have three open shelves that will hold a few dishes and thingamajigs!
The walls are now Sherwin Williams Sands of Time. The cabinets are being painted Du Jour by Valspar from Lowes.
I haven't decided if I want black counter tops like this (picture found on house beautiful website) or something a little more earthy.
Stay tuned for more updates on this project. Next up will be the family room that's right off the kitchen. What do you think so far? Should I change the wall color? Am I moving too slow on this project? I'd like to hear what you have to say!
