I did it! I have to admit that I had been dreading this project. Ever since we moved into this house I just knew that I wanted to paint the cabinets white. But was a bit intimidated by the magnitude of such a project. So after a lot of thinking and estimates from local painters, oh my! I finally just dove in.
Here is what my kitchen looked like before:
With one gallon of Zinsser’s low VOC primer and one gallon of Valspar’s low VOC. antique white semi-gloss I went to work. I painted one coat of primer followed by one coat of 1/2 primer 1/2 paint (advice from professional painter.) And finished with 2 coats of paint.
I am so pleased with the outcome. I can’t believe how much more light and how great the granite counters look. They were totally overshadowed by the 1970′s cabinetry before.
What do you think? Worth the 50$?
Sorry the pictures aren’t wonderful. I wanted to get this post out and it decided to snow today. Not great for lighting but really fun for the kids!
