Kitchen Progress

So the kitchen cabinets have been primed and some of them painted - so I wanted to share some pictures!

We used Kilz 2 Latex Primer from Home Depot...this is the kind we bought

We researched painting cabinets and as long as you use a good primer (and lots of coats!) you shouldn't have to sand them very much. We only sanded a little bit around the bottom where the varnish was uneven.

Here's what they looked like after they were primed. It took about 2 coats - some places I went back over and did a 3rd coat.

Once the entire kitchen is completed and all the cabinets are painted I will be posting before and after pictures, but I was too excited not to post pictures of the upper cabinets. We are almost finished with those.

The wall color is what I describe as a mint green. We choose a grey paint for the cabinets because I wanted some contrast between the cabinets and the white counter top (we aren't replacing that because we are to cheap!). We also painted all the woodwork around the windows and doorways white. The kitchen is so much brighter! I can't wait to post pictures of the finished product. Please ignore all the crap we have on the counter top, lol.

Here's another picture showing off the paint color we choose.

It is amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do! :)

That is all for now. More pictures to come!
