I fell in love with this kitchen the minute I walked into this house. I knew we would spend most of our time I here as a food-loving family and just loved the space the light and the overall vibe. While I love the space, there is one detail I have planned to change since day 1… the cabinet colors. I have been dreaming of painting the cabinets white to match the island piece. Our kitchen needs a hood installed and we want to replace the cheap counters. However, the first step, and the one that will make the biggest impact is the cabinets. 

I am nervous to do them myself but think it will incedibly rewarding to enter my kitchen daily and feel pride that I ahd made my own vision a reality. I started researching the process over a year ago and finally feel ready to tackle this project! The milk paint I decided to get is only available via Amazon for me, with no stores selling it locally, so I am waiting for the paint to arrive as we speak. 

I love making vision boards when I have a project in mind. Sometimes the end result looks nothing like the board but often it helps me ID what we want vs need and how to ensure things stay simple and exactly what our family will love. 

This board here is my current thoughts on the kitchen… I know we want minimal decor but a few things to complete the space once the cabinets are white. World Market is a favorite of mine an has been for over a decade when I am shopping for home decor

I love the colors in this board and think that with the white cabinets and original wooden floors, we will be thrilled with just a few pops of natural colors in the decor.

I am worried about the fabric on the stairs with messy little ones but do LOVE these island stools. If anyone has any thoughts on this, please share in the comments below!

I can’t wait to share the process with you all once I get started and welcome any advice if you have some before I start!

  • Yay! I am planning on painting our cabinets this spring once I can do it outside and am excited to see what a big difference it makes. We need a hood and new countertops as well but for now we will manage with taking all the upper cabinets down and painting all the lower cabinets. I already switched out the hardware last week and it is already such a huge improvement.
