Kitchen Makeover

The kitchen cabinets in our apartment are a dark cheap veneer. I’ve been planning on painting them from day one (I bought the paint to do it over a year ago) but a year and a half later it hasn’t been painted yet. I made a list of things that need to be done in order for the apartment to feel “finished.” There really isn’t much more to do but this is one of the big ones. I was super interested to see this makeover on Martha. Paint made such a difference! I’m going to paint my cupboards offwhite and use this hardware in a nickel.

    make sure you prep well, veneer is horrible to paint over. If you use a high quality primer and paint ( behr or ralphL) you won’t regret spending the extra cash !
    good luck, it will be beautiful !

    It really does make a big difference, amazing how a coat of paint can transform a room.
