Now for the fun stuff!! I painted the lower cabinets “Mourning Dove” by Martha Stewart. I had it mixed at Sherwin Williams, and since it is a discontinued color, just ask them and they can find the formula and mix it up for you!
I decided to add some FuN to the room by adding chalkboard paint on the back wall. I love it! And so do the kids!!
Remember this cabinet? This is the first cabinet I removed when I started the kitchen makeover!
And here it is painted!
To this day, I am still debating if I like the distressed look (see the left cabinet door below) or if I want the cabinets to be solid white (see right cabinet door below). What do you think?
I never shared with you the picture of the ceiling after I ripped out the soffit. Here it is! The ceiling also shows were I started taking off the popcorn ceiling. Yep…I opened that can of worms and will share that process with you later. I can assure you, all the mess and work was well worth it ;)
So just to see where we’ve come, here is a “before” of the left side:
And here is a “during” of the left side:
Here is a “before” picture of the right side of the kitchen:
Stay tuned! Next week I am going to share pictures of the backsplash, open shelving, and the rest of the painted cabinets!!
