exposed cabinets...a little change goes a long way!

a few days ago my sister was over and we were discussing our homes and different projects we were doing. we started talking about my kitchen and the idea of taking the cabinet doors off of the top cabinets to expose them. our house was built in 1925 so the kitchen is quite narrow and small and we thought it would help to open it up a little and create more space.

well, once i get an idea in my head there is no going back. i was off to home depot the next day to get some paint and a roller. i am sooo happy with how it turned out. it feels like a new kitchen in there!! it is amazing what simply removing something and adding a color can do!

here is what it looked like before:

                                                             Here is my kitchen now!

**just in case you would like to know, the color i chose is by behr and it's called garden room. i only needed a sample jar of the paint so this project, with paint, rollers, and hooks (to hang those amazing teacups from anthropologie that my sister bought me as inspiration for this project...you're amazing sis!), the 3 plants, and that amber vase from goodwill only cost me about $12. pretty awesome!


  1. Wow shelly! It looks sooooo great!

  2. Oh my goodness! I can't believe the difference!!! It looks incredible! I can't wait to see it in person! Yay! Oh I can't wait to be a home owner to do fun things like this!!!!
