The gray on the wall was my way of testing to see if I'd like the color - making sure it wasn't blue or purple, like the 2 previous "grays" I had purchased :D
Is this floor just gorgeous?! ;)
Doesn't this just look stressful?! Wow, what a mess!
I took off all of the cupboard doors & painted them....
Several coats of paint.......
I really wanted to add this fun detail to the doors, using the same gray (Behr Premium Ultra, Creek Bend) we had used on the walls, but it was going to be too time consuming & I couldn't make the lines straight enough to make it not look like a 5 year old had done it :) The cabinets are also Behr paint, color is Antique White.
My sweet friend Tricia came over one day & helped me with some taping & painting!
Also see the new appliances we got? They look so much better than the old ones! We still want to get a microwave to go above the range, but for now we'll keep using the old one & keep the funny looking hood above the oven :) One step at a time, right?!
My husband installed the flooring & it looks fabulous!!
New hardware for the doors & drawers
"Working" hard?! :) After we got the new floor in & some new appliances, we realized how awful the old countertop looked, so back to Lowe's we went to order something new. And installed it ourselves. We saved so much money doing everything on our own, but it was a lot of work!
This particular wall gave us some troubles, as we had to make some new cuts into the counter to get it just right. We scratched up the wall along the way as well - but nothing a little sanding & paint couldn't fix!
We also got a new sink that is wonderful!
The final reveal....................
You may recognize these chairs from a previous post, showing you how I had redone them! BTW, I am still really liking them & the color has really grown on me. I also love how the rug in the entry way just pops from this angle in the kitchen.
So there you have it! I am in love with my kitchen & am so happy with how it turned out! The color gray is perfect - thank you Behr Ultra paint, you are my new best friend when it comes to painting :)
If you are considering painting your cupboards & putting new hardware on, please let me know, as I've got a few helpful hints that I had to learn along the way :) Maybe I'll post about them again some other day!
