So we bought our house almost a year ago... and it had a very country feel...and I'm more of a modern day girl!
So I've been planning this for a while...
The cupboards took 2 coats of b-i-n and 2-3 coats of bright white paint!
I was so nervous that i sat on the paint for a few days before i started it, but i then said screw it and went for it!
It's exactly how I wanted it to look, and i'm so happy with it.
I bought new handles, but couldn't afford new hinges too, so i spray painted them... i think they look alright (considering)..
Just a few things I learned along the way... B-I-N is so much better than latex primer!! I completely recommend it, it covered the dark so well!
Also, if you're buying new handles..if you want to save time, buy handles that the are same length as the ones you already have.. mine weren't..and it took a bit longer, because i had to fill holes, and drill new ones.. but considering i got these $1 a piece on eBay (can i put that on here?) It was worth the extra step.
It took me almost 2 weeks to complete this project, i have young children, so i could only work on it in the evenings or nap time... I'm sure I could have gotten it done sooner... but there were a few days I didn't even touch it...
One more thing: I took off the cupboard that was right next to the window on the wall... I didn't like where it was...it didn't line up with the bottom cupboards, and i found it just didn't look right... I dont really miss the cupboard space...and it was an extra spot for wall art!
It was a win-win!
Thanks to everyone with the amazing comments!
My next step is replacing countertops! Which is going to start in a few weeks.. I will upload New pictures when it's done, i'm so excited!!
