For instance: we bought plain Jane basic cupboards and everyone, including my husband, excitedly suggested or insisted on a deep wood stain, with the cheapest, most boring, plain silver or gold handle hardware. I wanted crisp white painted cupboards and bead board door inserts, with knobs, cup pulls, and all other metal accents in oil-rubbed bronze. But I really think your post was back there in my mind, muttering about not loving your kitchen but trying to stay happy with it.

So, I researched every single thing or item I wanted. I found the easiest and thriftiest way of making over the cupboards with bead board paneling. I found round oil-rubbed bronze knobs at such a great price that with the money saved from those, we could buy the oil-rubbed bronze cup pulls I found too. Then I took a deep breath thought about stopping there and talked to my husband. He was disappointed with not going a dark wood stain on the cupboards.
He was unsure about adding in bead board.
But he agreed… to all of it. And not just my kitchen, the whole thing. He bought me the front door I was drooling over, though I was fully expecting to get a less expensive, marked down, door. He bought the faux stone finish for the outside that I love. He even agreed to helping me paint some of the kitchen cupboards black when I realized that I loved the combined black and white look. So thank you. Thank you for taking the time to write about your diy world of renovating, decorating, and recycling. But thanks, again. They will definitely be proposing some monthly charge for actual channel site visitors.
That offers us a major hint, bring a superior team. This is the reason why DIY projects can help you get better results. You call every decision! Kitchen cabinets can come in so many colors and styles, and if you already know which one you want, you shouldnt ask for any advice because it will only confuse you! We painted our cabinets and I agonized over every paint choice and step of the process. The funny thing is that I was going for what you ended up with!
We were painting navy blue cabinets and ended up with great results. Prep, prep prep, I believe it made all the difference.

Everything you did is exactly something I would do. Not just the lady at Home Depot or the contractor; your husband too. Same goes for actual wall colors because it is really the only thing my hubby will notice. So I have to get his input on that. Anyway- you have a beautiful kitchen- someday it will be everything you want.

Thank you for the great post. I found you on Pinterest. Higher power has once again intervened and confirmed to me to not second guess myself by way of your post. You just saved me. I realize now how important a design board can be. I wanted green cabinets. I love the Annie Sloan paint because of the no priming and you can just slop the paint on. Using a recipe to get the exact color every time was not for me. Using a recipe to get the color I wanted would be a disaster.

I ended up with a muddy color. The hesitation to go ahead and repaint was the the time I invested in that muddy looking mess. Try the Annie Sloan paint on your cabinets. It seems expensive.
It goes a very long way and you can water it down. You hang in there, Girlie! Thanks again for your article. The board is titled All Mine. Love ya! I love your kitchen and I would actually change only 1 thing. I would paint over the blue and make it a lighter cream then your kitchen cabinets. I would take off a door and take it to Home Depot to match a lighter shade. Love the flooring, counters, and back-splash. I like the first kitchen, it is just as small as my own and looks really spacious. Your first mistake was assuming the sales person was a designer. Anyone can proclaim themselves a decorator.
I also did not listen to myself with what I wanted and I got some bad advice from the Home Depot lady designer. Also listened to my MIL and did not open the kitchen like I wanted to. I actually really like your cabinets and agree that the cream is better with the dark floors. Since they are new cabinets, instead of painting them YET, I would start by painting the very nautical looking light blue that is all over. I think this is a cheap place to start and will probably really change your view of the cabinets. Its an easier fix that painting the cabinets. The existing blue is calling out for white cabinets.
Time to let the blue go. I would like to add my 2 cents for you to consider, because this is so fixable. I have two thoughts…. Change the tone of your existing blue walls to a softer blue with warmer, greyed down undertones and paint a warmer white or cream on the trim to match cabinets or a shade or two lighter.

Basically you would be going from what is a mixed cool and warm scheme that is fighting each other to an all warm scheme. I fear that painting your new cabinets white will make your backsplash, knobs and countertops pop visually perhaps a too harsh contrast and since these were not your favorite elements you may be disappointed when they are accentuated. Plus, the factory applied cream paint on your cabinets will be a better finish than a DIY paint redo….. Pull a taupe, grey or cream colour from your backsplash tile and repaint the walls.
The trim would then be the cream to match your cabinets or a lighter version. This could be a more sophisticated tone on tone scheme with softer contrasts…. You can add blue accents with your accessories if you miss the blue…and if the blue is elsewhere in your home, provide continuity. Keep your warm tones clean and fresh…. Hey this surely is a good read; the pictures have made it all the more interesting and attractive.
