Our kitchen is definitely in need of some love! I think most people would just gut the whole thing and start over! We can't afford a full kitchen remodel, and I actually like the old charm that it has. So we're working with what we've got and trying to spruce things up a bit.
First we started ripping out the layers of paper that were lining the insides of the cabinets. I really liked the old floral paper, but it wasn't in the best of shape so we couldn't save it.
Then we started painting the insides a fun aqua color.
We took off all the doors to start the painting process. We're doing one side of the kitchen at a time. For two reasons, one being that its a whole lot to do all at once, and the other is that we really don't have the space for all the doors! The picture above has the cabinet frames all painted and ready to go.
All the doors are drying! They got the last coat of the clear coat this morning so hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to hang them all back on! We bought some new black hinges which really look nice on the light grey cabinet color.
We installed a recycling bin, which I'm really excited about!
We still need to paint the insides of all the cabinets on this side of the kitchen. One step at a time!
We painted the fridge with chalkboard paint, which Cash has just started to enjoy.
We definitely still have a lot of work to do, but its getting there.
