I'm Doing It

I'm painting the kitchen cabinets. Why am I such a hesitant freak about painting them?! Who knows. 

I definitely want it done. After hesitation, I have decided to paint them, then add trim later, if I still want it. I found a handyman to help with the trim, so that's a great option if I want it. 

I think I can paint them fairly quickly, since it's basically all flat planes. 



This kitchen was the final kick I needed to do it. Why? because these cabinets feel almost flat, and this kitchen also has all the same other finishes we have: white subway tile with dark grout, dark hardwoods, and white countertops, and adore all the white in this photo.

Bam. Done. I think it'll be splendid. 


I'm gonna squeeze in priming today, in between painting five hundred other things for clients. i'm crazy. Be on the lookout on my instagram for preview shots (kristenfountaindavis).

  6. You will never regret it. With all of your painting experience, I'm sure they will turn out perfect.
    When I painted my cabinets, I picked the wrong shade of white paint & they ended being too bright. I should have used a warmer shade. I never did paint the lower cabinets because I thought all that bright white would burn my retinas.
