Kitchen Reveal (almost)

Remember when I said "more to come" on the kitchen cabinet re-do?
Well, here we go...

Nothing like a
new coat of white paint, right?

I have several photos to share, so hang in there.
I really wanted to have the whole kitchen ready for reveal,
however, am not quite there yet.


So this is just one wall of cabinets.
I decided NOT to put the doors back on the top cabinets.
I've always adored the open ones.
And I must admit, I do like it better.


I made this sign out of an old fence board.
Never used the stencils before, and it's an easy project.



I also repainted some old sap buckets, which were red and green.
Then added some special numbers in metallic brown.



I had a hard time deciding whether to put something in the buckets,
or leave empty... I'm sure it will change several times over the next few days :)










It's getting there.
Much better than this:

And best of all, a very inexpensive re-do.
Just one gallon of paint (so far).


Hope this finds you happily getting projects done!

It looks beautiful. Was it hard to do? I've wanted to paint my kitchen cupboards too, but I haven't been that daring yet. I love the white!!

It looks so fresh and new.
I love the look of the cabinets, it really opens up things. I would have to keep organized for sure to do that. But it sure looks pretty

I have to ask....are those oak cabinets? I am in a big ol' debate with my hubby right now. He says painted oak cabinets look horrible. But I am bent on painted white cabinets. They just look so fresh! Please tell me your secret - yours came out fab :D Love the open cabinet look too!
