I have always wanted a WHITE kitchen. I realized this when looking back through my “home binder” not the super organized one Julie taught us about, but the one where I put all the magazine pages I tear out for inspiration. Does anyone else do this? Anyway I found that every kitchen picture I have torn out for the past 10 years has been WHITE! So when we bought our house, I had the kitchen painted white before I even moved in and I am so glad I did! I love how clean and crisp and happy it makes me every time I walk in. I will show you the before and after and then share all the details in case you are WHITE happy like I am.
I still get excited seeing the difference! I was so lucky to have my sister come out for a couple weeks right when I was moving to help. She helped me with all the details: lights, stools, knobs, trim, tile and all that other stuff that needs to change when you make the jump to white.
Just a little tip to pass along from my sister-in-law: Put these genius sticky felt circles (found at Lowe’s) on the bottom of the legs to your chairs, stools, highchair, etc. so they can slide easily in and out and protect your flooring. It makes it so much easier to sweep! *In case you are wondering I found the hardware at the Home Depot, the dining light and stools at Overstock.com and the other lights at Builder’s Lighting (local store in Boise). I’m so happy I made the jump to WHITE! If you are wanting to do the same but want to do it yourself, Shelley informed me that she has already bought her paint and will be painting her kitchen WHITE in the near future. She will take pics along the way and share a fab tutorial on the process.
Next remodel to tackle is the garage. I’ve been pinning residential garage doors for inspiration. What’s on your list?
