I apologize that I have been quite MIA this past month, I blame it on my two week trip to California and the house project we recently started. We bought our home back in August and there's a long list of things that we want to get done. One of the first big projects I wanted to tackle was the kitchen. I have always dreamt of having a white kitchen and I am excited to finally start the process of creating one!
We used Rust-Oleum's cabinet paint in the color "Linen" for this transformation. For those who are unfamiliar with Rust-Oleum, they are a company that specializes in paint and finishes for furniture (including cabinets). Rust-Oleum's process does not involve sanding, but a de-glosser coat, multiple bond coats and top coats. I have read many, many wonderful reviews about Rust-Oleum's cabinet transformations and am excited (and a tad nervous) to see the end result.
See picture below. **Note: These are the pictures from the previous owners.
Honey oak cabinets and honey oak wainscoting are not my thing... AT ALL ...so this past weekend, we started on the kitchen remodel and oh my goodness, does this take a long time! We worked all weekend and only finished the wainscoting and lower section of the cabinets. Completing the top section is put on hold until we get back from our Thanksgiving trip to Missouri. I am definitely happy with the results so far and I can't wait until they are 100% done! Not to mention, adding some beautiful hardware will complete the transformation!
I am testing out different wall colors, so please excuse the paint patches! We are also in the process of selecting new countertops so ignore the plain laminate.
Below are a couple snap shots of the lower section.
I am debating on doing something a little crazy with the upper cabinets, but I have not officially made a decision, so I am keeping that from you! I can't WAIT until this is all done!
I will keep you posted with more updates in the next couple of weeks!
