This is before the update, white kitchen cabinets (Navajo White from Sherwin Williams).
My lower kitchen cabinets were in need of a new paint job after only year after we moved in. The paint was originally sprayed on, a lacquer, and when water dripped on it, it began to bubble up and peel.
Then, eight years later, kids had added pencil marks and Sharpie drawings to the peeling paint. It was embarrassingly shabby and not in a chic way.
This is after painting the lower cabinets with Dorian Gray from Sherwin Williams.
I love, love, love the color. While we were painting, Emily mentioned that Layla had painted her kitchen cabinets white and gray. I wish my upper cabinets were whiter like hers are, but it probably won’t happen anytime soon. Although, it wasn’t as difficult as I anticipated and, with three of us (cousin, aunt plus me), it only took about 3 hours.
Before painting I sanded the cabinets and wiped them down with Peso.
We used an oil-based paint, which no one in the blog world ever uses so you probably don’t have to.
I’m so glad I did it. Now I wish I could buy new countertops and add a tile backsplash.
One thing at a time though.
