I like how the color on the cabinets really makes the countertops look better. I love it. I wish I could do something as simple as paint to make my kitchen cabinets look 20 times better. sadly I just need new cabinets and countertops.

Fantastic!! This shows what people can do with just a little money and some effort. Your kitchen is a bit similar to mine, minus the paneling. My house is on the market. I wish I could show this to perspective buyers and tell them this is what this kitchen could look like.

Had I had any attachment to this house, I would have done something to the cabinets also. Congratulations on such a good job and showing those idiots who spend tens of thousands of dollars on a kitchen re-do that they are wasting their money!

I love that you painted the pineboard white. The house we are looking to buy has the same board in the family room and just grosses me out. I'm really happy to see that it looks great!

It looks great!  Excellent transformation!

I'm curious about how you added the trim?  Did you use construction glue (no more nails)?  Or was actual hammering involved? 

Anyway, It looks lovely.

That looks great! We're in the middle of a budget makeover, too, so I enjoyed seeing your ideas. You completely transformed the room. While I wouldn't have picked those colors myself - they look fabulous! Funny how sometimes it takes someone else's eye to make you see the possibilities...

I've never been lost, but I will admit to being confused for several weeks.
