Kitchen Remodel

I've shared with you the finished dresser, now to show you the other side of the kitchen and the painted units.

It took me over a year to finally come to the nerve to paint our kitchen.  I umm'd and ahhhh'd and worried that I might spoil it.  After all, I still loved our kitchen, it was just the one day, I could count 4 different shades of oak, where the sun had bleached it.  Plus, Simon installed the kitchen over 12 years ago, and we felt that it was looking a little dated.

I'm pleased though that I initially picked a shaker style kitchen and one with simple lines, as now it's painted, I love it even more.
Let me share with you some of the before and process photos.

There you have it, my process.  I will be sharing a little post later on, about how I painted it, you know, tips and tricks I picked up, just in case anyone wants to have a little go at painting their units, and also some more of the finished look. 

I hope you're all ok with the few changes, I've been making on my blog, I do hope to be getting back to crafting more soon and of course that means a craft room clear up ... yes AGAIN lol xxx


  1. I have always adored your kitchen and love the transformation. Must pop over for a cuppa soon xxx

  2. You certainly should be extremely proud of yourself. It's an amazing job!

  3. It is looking wonderful Sandra.

  4. It looks gorgeous - well done you!!

  5. It looks fabulous - you are so talented. I was noticing this weekend the sunshine through the skylight has faded part of the cabinets in our master bath. But I'd have to do a lot of hemming and hawwing before taking the plunge to paint them.

  6. The kitchen turned out fabulous! I think the paint really gave it an update & the new cabinet hardware is great, too!

  7. I love your kitchen and how it looks with the white cabinets. I'm sure it was a lot of work but it was so worth it! It is amazing to me how something as simple as painting cabinets and changing out hardware can have such a dramatic impact and completely transform a space.

  8. Your kitchen is gorgeous! It is amazing to me how something as basic as paint can make such a huge difference. The white makes it look so updated and I love the black countertop. The blue walls really pop too. I love this so much that I want to paint my own kitchen. Nicely done!


Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and leave me a message. It means a lot x
