My Kitchen Remodel

I wanted to share my kitchen update to show how you can easily transform your kitchen relatively inexpensively


Painting the Cabinetry…

This was the original color of the cabinets

It’s important to sketch out your kitchen and label each cabinet.    

Don’t forget to label the hardware to match the cabinet numbers so that you can replace each door & drawer easily.

Once all the cabinets are labeled and taken off, you can begin the painting process.

Priming the cabinets…

Start by giving the cabinets a light sanding. In this case I used a tinted primer to go under the darker paint. Two coats of primer were needed.

The doors & drawers were sprayed and the frames were rolled. The first can of paint was mixed incorrectly and came out purple instead of black. Lesson learned- test your paint! We wound up doing four coats of paint. 

Now that the cabinets have been painted and each door and drawer is put back where it belongs, it’s time to pick countertops. The original cabinets are a grey laminate and will be replaced with granite.

After choosing the stone, size, cut, and finish, we are ready for installation!

Here is my new kitchen…


Still to come… hardware, decor, and backsplash!

    I love it. Can’t wait to see it in person. I will bring another black and white towel, if they still have them.

    Look on Facebook for pictures of Mama Lisa show last night. I forgot my camera but others brought theirs.
