Before and after of the kitchen cupboards



The below before picture is when we first started painting, the place was a mess, the floor deplorable. I posted the first steps with the new floor and paint in our DIY Kitchen Makover Part 1

Before kitchen

The bottom cupboards are painted in Annie Sloan chalk paint™ French Linen and go with the floor perfectly!

Here’s a look at the before…pretty dated…

And here’s the after…so much brighter!

I mixed Annie Sloan chalk paint™ Pure White with a little Paris Grey to get the colour I wanted for the upper cupboards. I’m so happy with the way they turned out.

I couldn’t afford new hardware for all the drawers & cupboards, so I spray painted them with Tremclad Rustoleum in gloss black.

They aren’t perfect, but what a difference a little paint will make. They’ll work for now!

The counter tops and sink do not go with the new kitchen, but there is no way Larry will allow me to replace or paint them. And the back-splash could be updated…but I can’t push my luck right now. haha

Notice I have a new white microwave? Now to work on that wall oven…yuck…

There are still small details to be worked on and I have to do something about the rest of the decor. It all takes time, but I’m thrilled we’ve completed the main part of our DIY kitchen makeover.

I love the huge clock my girls gave me as a present!

My grandmother’s kitchen hutch was moved to the other side of the dining nook and doing that makes the area look bigger. And of course, this is on my ever-growing list of things to paint.

And I still have to work on the water cooler, I love Bliss’s comment on the first post of designing a custom wood base for it! :)

And I even painted the old heat vent! I did it in French Linen, and liked it so much that’s what made me go with that colour on the bottom cupboards.

It’s not a big kitchen, but I’m actually proud of it and don’t mind having people into the house now.

Larry did finish painting the dining room and I did the trim & chandelier. I’ll have to show you that soon…but first there is the matter of the ugly table & chairs in there that have to be dealt with. 

Disclosure – I was not compensated for this post, these are products I love and use often!

  1. Amazing!!!! I LOVE the French Linen. You did an amazing job

  2. How beautiful and inspiring. I hope my cabinets turn out this good! I’m pretty sure we have the same flooring. Do you love it?

  3. Another great example of what a little paint can do. And remember, you are probably the only one really noticing the counter tops.

  4. Beautiful transformation Debbie! Love the colours. My friend put in the same floor.
    I must share your blog with her. She doesn’t blog or I would show you her new kitchen reno.

  5. Oh Debbie, your kitchen is so very pretty! I kept ooohing and awwwing as I looked at your pictures :) You are amazing with the things and items that you transform. You have certainly impressed me! I bet you just love spending time in your “new” kitchen. Hugs to you!

  6. Looks great Debbie, we have the first set of plans and I’ve already made changes on what we want. I’ve got the before photos and I’m sure there will be lots of during and after photos once the work starts. The planning stage is slow but so important.

  7. Beautiful! I have that song in my head, “I’m walking on sunshine” thinking that is what you and the hubs are doing. What a great, fresh, bright change! Nice job.

  8. It looks so fresh and pretty now. I really love the flooring you selected. Such a great color. Enjoy your beautiful new kitchen!! (:

  9. What a great transformation! It looks beautiful. I like the color combination, and especialy I love the French Linnen on the base cabinets. Thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving a comment.

  10. Great transformation. I especially like the spray painted hardware, it looks really effective. Well done.
