Kitchen Remodel With Paint: The After

whitekitchenremodel

Our kitchen has been transformed! And, I’m pretty excited about it! You can read about the beginning of our kitchen remodel adventure here (I will include link to previous post). When I learned about an opportunity to work with Sherwin-Williams to create a kitchen that reflected our personal style (just using paint and a few accessories), I knew I had to jump on it. I couldn’t be happier with the results! The room is now light and bright and happy. Here is a breakdown of the colors we selected and the paint we used: For all the colors, we selected Duration Home® (read the description and you’ll know why): With Duration Home Interior Acrylic Latex paint, you’ll enjoy superior durability and washability for your active home. It is ideal for high use areas like kitchens, hallways, and bathrooms. Preferred by parents with young children due to its durability and washability. Living Room Walls: Light French Gray, satin finish Kitchen Walls: Light French Gray, semi-gloss finish Kitchen Ceiling: Snowfall, semi-gloss finish Kitchen Cabinets: Multi-Purpose Zero VOC Latex Primer Kitchen Cabinets: Snowbound, semi-gloss finish We went with the semi-gloss finish in the kitchen to make it easier to wipe down the cabinets from inevitable food ickiness and kid fingerprints. Here are our results:

We purposely didn’t paint the ceiling the exact same color as the cabinets because we didn’t want them to blend together. But I also didn’t want a ceiling that stood out more than my cabinets–so we decided on Sherwin-Williams Snowfall, which is a very very very light shade of gray (making the ceiling ever-so-slightly different from the cabinets and walls).

This photo helps capture the contrast of the Snowbound white cabinets with the Light French Gray Walls. We used the Snowbound color on all the baseboards as well.

We also switched out our hardware with these brushed nickel pieces.

And then I added fun accessories to give the room a POP of color.

Now, a bit more detail about the project:

1. All the cabinet faces and hardware were removed. 2. Cabinets were sanded down. 3. Cabinets were painted with a coat of Sherwin-Williams Multi-Purpose Zero VOC Latex Primer. 4. Cabinets were painted with two coats of Sherwin-Williams Duration Home paint in Snowbound. 5. Once paint had dried, imperfections were sanded out and painted over. 6. Cabinets were re-installed and new hardware was applied.

Because we wanted a pristine, finished look with no brush strokes, a paint sprayer was used rather than a roller or brush.  I believe, the key to this successful project was in the prep work. While the faces of our cabinets are wood, the insides (where our dishes live) are some form of manufactured wood.  Repainting the manufactured wood would have been a disaster so we ended up leaving them as they were. This meant that every individual cupboard had to be taped off to protect the inside.  A lot of extra work, but it made for a flawless finish.  I was so pleased with how smooth the Sherwin-Williams paint went on.  Not to mention it dried incredibly fast with little to no residual fumes, which allowed us to continue sleeping in our house during the project.

14-DSC_0928

Because a paint sprayer was used, the entire kitchen was tarped off to prevent the spread of paint residue to other rooms.

We were repainting the adjoining room anyway, so it became the workplace for spraying all the cabinet doors.

This picture helps show the contrast of the Sherwin-Williams Light French Gray to the previous “warmer” color.

Overall, this was an amazing experience. I’m so pumped that I was able to create a completely new look and feel for my home just by painting it. It can feel overwhelming picking the “perfect” paint color for your home or furniture–but I can honestly tell you that using the Sherwin-Williams color selection tools (Chip It!™ and ColorSnap Studio™ for iPad) took the stress out of my decision and made it fun.

    Well, maybe this post came at just the right time. We just inherited my in laws old cabinetry and are in the process of planning the new layout for our kitchen. We live in a super old home(1860) and the kitchen has FIVE doorways in it! There is no continuous counterspace anywhere so its very non-functional. Once we get the cabinetry re-worked to suit our needs, we will be painting all the cabinetry. $100 toward the paint would be a huge blessing!

My FIRST project would definitely be the kitchen though!

    I SO much prefer white cupboards than wood – especially with that grey/beige granite style. Maybe it’s because I live in the Pacific Northwest where it’s gloomy more than sunny but wood can just darken a place so much – your kitchen looks twice the size with that white! Well done on such a professional-looking job, I can guarantee my painting would not look so neat!

    Thank you so much for sharing this! I want to paint my cabinets white, but they are very high quality, so I keep second-guessing myself because I don’t want to “ruin” them. Every other cabinet painting project I find is done with old, builder’s-grade cabinets (which would make my decision easier — I would not hesitate!), so it’s encouraging to see your results. We also have brown speckled granite countertops, and again, they are really high quality, but not what I would have chosen, so it’s great to see how your brown counters look with the new white cabinets!
