Kitchen: Mid-makeover

Well I'm partially done with the kitchen makeover. I got it painted which was a pain, but I LOVE IT! The pictures just don't do it justice (doesn't everyone say that?).

I used Porter Hi-Hide paint "Silver Dollar".


(Oh how I wish those countertops disappeared with the ugly paint).

I mean, it definitely could have been worse, these just aren't my kind of colors.

...I don't understand why you would let paint get all over the countertops and cabinets - I didn't do already was like that)
The previous owner painted the hinges, but she didn't remove them so there's paint all over the cabinets and she only painted the part you see when you stare at it straight on. Oh well, better than bright brass. 

(I just put that sewing machine table in there last night - it will be painted white)

(the painters tape peeled some of the trim paint off - gonna have to fix that)

I'd say it's coming along! The chairs are primed and waiting to be painted :) 

One last time side by side...

Check out my sidebar to see where I'm linking up!


  1. The kitchen is off to a great start! We are also redoing our kitchen at the moment. I found your blog at Between Naps on the Front Porch. You have such great ideas and I'm your newest follower! I'd love it if you'd follow me back:
    Again, you did a fantastic job with this!! :-)

  2. I'd say it's looking a hundred times better already. I really like the paint color your picked out. It's very pretty.

  3. It's looking really good. I like your new paint color. I really don't think your countertops are that bad, at least as far as laminate goes. They could be a lot worse! At least they are neutral.

  4. It is coming along so nicely! It is always amazing the difference paint can make! Thanks for linking up!

  5. Oooh, I love the color! Can't wait to see what else you do to it!
