All I can saw is wow! Your house looks like my house! LOL I've been waiting (5yrs) to have money to replace our kitchen, but you've now inspired me to simply paint! AND, you had gosh awful paneling like we have in our entire game room.  Since I have no idea what's under the paneling, I never even thought that it would take paint. What sort of paint (oil based, flat or what) did you use on the panels?Huh Great job!

Wow, what a difference, I love it!  Is the ceiling the same color as the cabinets?  My fiance and I just bought a house too and we are slowly remodeling some areas... so trust me, I know all about not wanting to spend any more money after buying a house  Cheesy  Also, we painted the wood paneling in our apartment (many years ago) and can it was a huge improvement, but I've never been a fan of wood paneling...

Amazing job!  When I first started to read it I thought oh okay, it's kinda dark with the wood cupboards and such but it at least looks clean and fresh. Then I scrolled down and saw the transformation- Fan-freaking-tastic!!!

I love the colours and the changes you made, great job!!!

Big thanks to everyone for your wonderful comments. You've made my day! That horrible paneling was in almost every room in our house. We used regular paint on everything, but did apply a nice coat of primer first. We cut the trim on the cabinets using a miter saw and then applied using a nail gun with trim nails. I filled the holes and then painted them.

Thanks again!
