For the past two years I’ve loathed my kitchen cabinets. They were dingy, unsightly and dark brown. They didn’t excite me what so ever. I couldn’t take it anymore and didn’t want to move out so I contacted my landlord and got approval to paint. Grey is insanely hot in interior design especially as painted cabinetry/bookcases/bookshelves so of course, I had to represent. I opted for Valspar’s Mountain Smoke paint in a satin finish and I couldn’t be more pleased. The grey really brightened up my kitchen. It’s clean, simple, and updated (it’s about freaken time!) Prepping, sanding, painting took 3 days. I didn’t work full 8 hour days but rather, on and off here and there haha.
This weekend I finished off my kitchen mini-makeover by installing hardware all by myself and I’m feeling quite proud ;) Hardware can be expensive and I think most people opt for the knobless/pull-less cabinets/drawers due to price however, it’s so important to me. Hardware is like rocking a necklace with a simple blouse or dress. It completes a look by adding depth, texture, color, and/or sheen.
