Kitchen makeover... Finally RESULTS

So I have been wanting to change my cabinets in the kitchen since we moved in this house almost 8 years ago.  I have had a long time to think about what I want and we are on a tight budget so brand new is OUT of the question... so I have come up with ....
Painting my cabinets.... 

I have always thought that my kitchen was dark, so bringing in white and maybe a pop of color would help to brighten it up!  Chalk paint is the answer!!!
 Annie Sloan Chalk Paint... Old Ochre and Duck Egg Blue... 

and finally after much hard work and let me tell you...... a lot of WAXing later.... some finished cabinets!  

 this one is to show the great color contrast!
 I am loving the country farm home feel I get when I enter my kitchen.  Thank you Annie Sloan and Cheryl from Big White Goose Barn for showing me that all it takes is a little bit of paint and some imagination to transform your look!!!

We also added beadboard to the breakfast island and wow does that look nice!

I love the textured that the bead board adds to the ends of the cabinets... such a great idea!

 I wish I was a better photographer so that I could show you how great my kitchen actually looks as a whole put together! :) 

  Love it!! There are still a LIST of wants to be had in here... like the counters and new appliances, but like I said I have NO budget right now... more on those later (sooner than that I hope).


  1. what an improvement! If you want to make the top cabinets pop paint the wall duck egg blue it will tie the looks together. Such a cute farmhouse country look. Still don't know what color to paint my cabinets? I am thinking Coco.
