#makeovermonday / a dark kitchen made over

the daily Starr makeover monday blog

We started working on this house a few months ago and the kitchen was actually usable. It already had fantastic stainless steel appliances and needed a few simple updates to make it spectacular.

Our to-do list for this dark kitchen makeover included:

  • Take down the wallpaper and paint the walls
  • Paint the cabinets
  • Replace the backsplash with white subway tile
  • Replace the flooring with a lighter tile
  • Install granite countertops
  • Update the lighting

Y’all. This one seriously makes me want to PAINT MY DARK CABINETS RIGHT NOW.

Here’s the before and after together – just to be a little more dramatic, because I like dramatic.

Wow. Right?? Is that REALLY the same kitchen?? Yes. Yes, it is!

 

What a difference a little paint can make, right???

This house has me falling in love with gray paint. Yes, please.

Oh, and the dining room was a dark transformation too. How about one more dramatic before and after tonight on this #makeovermonday?

Gosh, I could just stare at these alllll day long!!! It’s seriously just paint, people. These hardwood floors were already there. This was a great house already, it just needed some brightening up and it feels completely different.

Colors used for this makeover project:

Wall Paint – Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray
Cabinet Paint – Sherwin Williams Mindful Gray, Satin Finish
Granite – Dallas White or Texas White (depending on vendor)
Kitchen Floor Tile – Futuro White 12×24 from Lowe’s

Happy Monday, y’all!
