Freshly Painted Kitchen Cabinets

Ok, you’ve read it before on here but, our house was built in 1908 and added on several times.  When we bought it, it was all wood paneling and dark carpet.  We took all that out and it helped lighten the house up a lot.  However, it was still so dark for my liking.  The kitchen cabinets had what I would call a golden pecan stain.  Very popular, like the wood paneling used to be.  Anyways, here are the before and after pics.

Now, all I need is a new hood vent!

Oh, and I didn’t paint these myself (too tedious!), but I can tell you that it took a coat of primer and 3 coats of paint.  I used Valspar Dove White.  I am definitely pleased with the results and my kitchen is so nice and fresh now!

Enjoy!

Happy Hump Day!
