It’s like straight up out of an episode of While You Were Out…
My parents went to Florida for a week and I stayed back to give a little makeover to my mom’s kitchen cabinets… with her approval of course.
About 10 years ago my mom painted her kitchen cabinets a light, buttery yellow. It looked great at the time, especially since her house is very colorful (remember her living room tour?). But with her new granite countertops and tile flooring, everything just started to look too tan/yellow.
Since I had so much success with my own white kitchen cabinet makeover, I decided to use the exact same paint… Pure White in ProClassic semi gloss from Sherwin Williams.
We also decided to keep some of the wood trim for now. There’s a lot of wood in throughout the home where it can still tie in, especially since the kitchen leads into a small family room/den with wood French doors and floor-to-ceiling bookcases (which I’m dying to paint to lighten up that space!).
The thing I love most about my childhood kitchen is the peninsula. We never had the conventional breakfast room table and I still love that everyone gathers around the kitchen for holidays and Sunday dinners (yep, my siblings and our kiddos gather almost every Sunday at my mom’s house. LOVE!).
Well we will have some updates to make to her newly updated kitchen including adding a nice hood over the oven, but I have to say that I’m extremely happy with the transformation thus far (and so were my parents when they returned from Florida on Saturday night).
Also make sure you check out some of my favorite tips and tricks for painting kitchen cabinets. Since I’ve done my own and my mothers, I kinda feel like an old pro now.
