This is my kitchen before I painted it..... The cupboards are a medium oak color and some of the cupboards were already painted black. It was very dark and dreary.
To lighten up the room ..I decided to paint all the Oak sections white as well as the kitchen island and it turned out fabulous! I love it so much. It is amazing what a little elbow grease and paint can do. This photo shows a different angle of the kitchen
If you enlarge this photo you will be able to see where I roughed up the edges of the black cupboards to make them look a little worn and more cottage like.
We would love to hear from any of you that have done this to your kitchen or another room in the house that was transformed with paint! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and send pictures too!!
