Change is Coming...
There's a few changes coming around our home! You might remember awhile back when I mentioned we are going to paint all the woodwork in our house! It will be a big job, but we are starting this week with the kitchen cabinetry. Twelve years ago, we first re-did the cabinets. They were standard builder grade oak, and we added many mouldings, slat bead board to the ends, knobs, and Benjamin Moore's Bennington Gray paint~ a taupe/gray. It is actually a color being used a lot on woodwork right now, but I really want to lighten our woodwork up! We have undercabinet lighting, which is not on in these pics, but we are also adding slat beadboard as a backsplash~ that will really brighten things up, too! The hardware will be changed out as well!
There is a large breakfast bar off to the left, in the photo below, which is backed with red painted beadboard. It has a very English Country look, but I am ready to change it up...the red will be mostly gone... and the wallpaper may go soon~ but this week's project is painting the cabinets!
You can see the good bones of the cabinet below~ my husband did a lovely job with the trim work~ and although they don't appear to be that dark, you can see the difference on the cabinet when I was testing paint...
We are going with Benjamin Moore's Simply White~ thanks to Kat of Low Tide High Style for the great color suggestion! Hopefully, soon I'll share how they turned out!
Until next time...I'll be busy painting!
