Kitchen Remodel

Wednesday, 22 June 2016
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!
