I recently painted the kitchen cabinets for my sister Holly and her husband Craig, and I can’t wait to show you how they came out! Since I have previously given a tutorial on how I paint cabinets (and I used the same method), I can just go ahead and show you the before and after pictures!
First let me start off by saying that I love the house my sister and brother-in-law recently bought, it is a picturesque colonial in the cutest town of Holliston, MA.
My sister does a lot of DIY projects and has done plenty of furniture painting and home decorating to make their home reflect their style. However, the one area of the house that they both were eager to change in a big way was the kitchen. The wood cabinets were almost a cherry color, and those combined with the reddish colored tiles were just too much, and made the room seem dark, as you can see in these before pictures:
*apologies for the poor picture quality as I was having camera issues, therefore many of these pictures are from my iPhone.
Holly and Craig decided on a beautiful color by Benjamin Moore called Gull Wing Gray, this complimented the colors in their countertops as well as their black appliances. For paint I used the Regal Select line that is both a paint and primer in one but I also used a regular primer first as well. I’ve found this is one of the best paints to use on cabinets (or the Benjamin Moore Advance line). They chose a semi gloss finish to help with durability, and I just love the difference it made! The color has a bluish hue to it in certain lights which Holly really enjoys as blue is a color used throughout their home. Once completed you could immediately see how it lightened up the entire room!
