I was in much need of some inspiration to break the paint brush out again and start painting my kitchen cabinets. It seems once the paint supplies are packed away they really want to stay that way, or maybe I really want them to stay that way.
As you can see below my basic builder cabinets in warm honey oak aren’t really cutting it mixed in with my cool color palette of gray and white.
I have finally found my inspiration though from a newly found blog called Me and Jilly.
Here is Mia’s kitchen before. Looks somewhat like mine with basic builder cabinets and linoleum countertops.
Now here is Mia’s kitchen after…
Wow what a transformation and so inspiring!
Mia added molding to her plain cabinet fronts, added glass panels to some of the upper cabinet doors, and did some finishing touches with a brick veneer backsplash and unique concrete countertop.
I am thinking, if her kitchen can look this good with some sweat and tears, mine can too! Now that I have the inspiration I just have to find the time. If I ever get the two together I’ll be unstoppable! Ya feelin me?!?
I usually try not to repost another blogs post, but this Before and After was too amazing not to share. Check out all the pictures on CoteDeTexas. You won’t be disappointed.
I have found a noteworthy makeover I had to share with you, from Willow Decor. I love the color scheme, the mixing of textures, and the flow between designated areas.
My favorite part of this entire room is the bench above. The burlap feedsack slipcover is divine! The key to the look above are the proportions of the chairs to the table. They are a perfect fit.
I love the mixture of the shiny metal on the pendants with the wooden stools and matte textures in the fabric on the chairs. This is a perfect way to mix texture.
I love the relaxing nature of this room. The architectural piece on the wall is an excellent substitute for something typical, while also creating depth and texture in the room. The only thing lacking is a larger rug, but I understand a work in progress.
I hope you liked the makeover and will go check out Willow Decor now for more great inspiration. It is one of my favorite blogs, for good reason!
