When we moved into our current home, the main thing we looked for was space. I tend to buy very large furniture, so this was very important! So, when we found this home, 5 years ago we were thrilled. I have never liked my kitchen, and we bought the house with the intention of gutting most of it out and renovating...little did we know, with children this is a hard task.
With our last home we were able to completely renovate the entire home (floors, walls, ceilings etc) within 2 short months, I never thought 5 years later I would be staring at the same orange cupboards that I hated on day one. My husband is not the 'do it yourself' type of person, and we hardly have time to ourselves, let alone have time to get someone to come and design a new kitchen for us....lets not even get started on the overall costs involved.
So, as I sat staring at those orange cupboards, I decided to take matters into my own hands... after-all how hard could it be? And what would we lose anyway?
Here is a photo of our kitchen before:
Dark, boring and pretty much not my style at all....Rustoleum
paint for cupboards was my solution! No sanding, no priming, just straight paint and sealer! Now that is my kinda project...off I went...
This project did take a little longer than I expected because I had to paint the framing, the inside and outside of the cupboards and take each one off the hinges ALONE....but here I am almost DONE!!
I love my NEW cupboards, and the price point (just over $100) and by the end of this weekend it will all be FINISHED!! Now off to my next project....transforming my orange fence (the previous owners must have loved that colour) to Grey.....
Wish me luck!!
