the copy cat cottage: kitchen

this one is a before & after. big time.



{remember: this home was built in the 1960s...}

and the after. after a long week of removing doors, sanding, priming, painting three coats. after hanging the doors again. after sewing curtains. after accessorizing.

after.






after taking off cabinet doors.




the paint for the cabinets is behr's ultra enamel paint. a gallon is $33. the walls are behr's latex paint in rhino. i had already bought this for my laundry room. chalkboard paint for a quart was $12. silver spray paint for the hinges was $6.

so for a little over $50 a brand "new" kitchen.

i love it. after.

I really have been astonished at what you have done with a little vision and a lot of paint! Fabulously frugal! I adore your home!

I LOVE a white kitchen! We painted our cabinets about 5 minutes after closing on our house! :0)

It just looks so fresh and clean- one of the best painting decisions we've ever made. Great job!!
