I’m Dreaming of a White Kitchen
Hello everyone! I’d like to welcome you to my kitchen!
If you can imagine, it was actually worse than this when we bought the house. The now cream panneling was yellow and the now green walls were teal (yikes!) I told myself I would never ever paint these cabinets, that they were too ugly to waste time on. But after 5 years of looking at this oak mess I’ve had a change of heart. I’ve just completed painting the trim/windows/doors on the 1st floor of my home. And it made a HUGE difference in the feeling of my home. So much so that it has influenced me to paint my cabinets. I want to bring that clean, fresh feeling into my kitchen where I spend so much of my time. If you’re ever on pinterest (you know you are!) you see white kitchens pinned daily. And for good reason, they are beautiful! Lately I’ve been pinning more and more, I can’t seem to have enough white kitchens. I seriously need to make a “White Kitchen Obsession” board. Here are some of my favorites.
Back to painting, I’ve never painted oak cabaintes before. I can’t stand the grain showing through. I noticed on Little Green Notebook she used some sort of grain filler before she painted. And on Young House Love they just primed and painted. I’m torn on which direction I should go…Have any of you had any experience painting oak cabinets? If so Id’ love your input!
