Kitchen Makeover: Painting!

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?

The upper cabinets were painted Alabaster by Sherwin Williams.  6

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 ;)

Cheers!

  1. Hello admin, i found this post on 13 spot in google’s search results.
    I’m sure that your low rankings are caused by hi bounce rate.
    This is very important ranking factor. One of the biggest reason for high bounce rate
    is due to visitors hitting the back button. The higher your bounce rate the further down the search results
    your posts and pages will end up, so having reasonably low bounce rate is important for improving your rankings naturally.
    There is very handy wordpress plugin which can help you. Just search in google for:
