Kitchen Reveal: Painted Kitchen Cabinets and Walls

Finally, I'm sharing our kitchen makeover with you today. If you didn't catch the before shots, just check out this post. We've transformed the place with nothing more than a few cans of paint and some $8.50 a piece curtain panels. Last night I snapped some photos as Benjamin was napping. I'd love to hear your thoughts!
To see all the photos, click "read more"
Since Benjamin is very much awake, I'll be just sharing photos today. I'll share more about the details of what went into the space (and plans for what we still have on our kitchen makeover to do list) soon.


 Isn't it better than this?

Of course, it is still a work in progress... more details and how-tos coming soon

  30. Hi Jenny, oh to have a naping baby, I still relish those baby days. Congrats on Benjamin.
    I just love your kitchen upgrades, I think its such a crisp clean look. A kitchen my hubby would love. I see thru the window that you live in a big city? I have been a (small) city girl all my life, and now I live in the wooded part of the city. I love to visit major cities.Enjoy your new kitchen and the many stages and phases of that darlin boy.
    Hugs,
    Ellen

  33. Looking good! You're kitchen is beautiful. I've painted my cabinets white and have since changed the color because they required a little more upkeep. I'm sorry I did and your makeover has inspired me to repaint them white once again. Following you and hope you will stop by for a visit as well.

  34. Oh wow, what a gorgeous space you've created! I love the crisp, white look. Actually makes it look like there is more space! The details you added are right on. You really did a fabulous job! Thanks for linking up at Show & Share!

  35. Love these colors and the unique touches like the labels and corks. They just make the space yours. My kitchen incorporates these same colors and our chairs are so similar but I did black chairs with a table with white legs. You have inspired me to go back in though and tweak it a bit. :) Love your blog and I was so excited that you linked up to Motivated Monday at BeColorful.

  43. Jenny, you did a fabulous job on your kitchen makeover! I love the gray walls against with all the pretty white. The curtains really softened up the room - much better than those vertical blinds. Your kitchen is so elegant now!
