All through February we worked on a new cabinet refinishing project for a wonderful lady named Jackie. This was one of our larger projects–a kitchen, butler’s pantry and large laundry room, all in different colors! The end result has been great. Somehow I forgot to take “before” pictures, but picture medium stained wood cabinets, and no backsplash.
This project had a new element of design fun for us– Jackie wanted a color other than white on her cabinets. We picked this light blue/green color (Woodland Blue by Benjamin Moore) and kept the island white (Jackie is considering changing her island counter to a white marble in the future).
This makeover added lightness, whimsy and a fresh look!
We picked this backsplash in the neutral family with just a touch of gray. Jackie’s walls are going to be painted a color called “Owl Grey” and the backsplash will pull that color through the kitchen nicely.
As I usually recommend in all the kitchens we makeover, we put beadboard around the island and on the ends of the cabinets. This serves two purposes–one, to add a more sturdy surface to accept the paint and not chip in the future (compared to the laminate wood on most island ends), and two, it upgrades the custom quality of the kitchen.
The lighting isn’t great in this picture below, but you can see the who area.
Here is our team and Jackie is in the middle with the great smile. It has been wonderful working with her!
We are working on two more kitchen cabinet projects right now so I will of course add these to the blog!
P.S. We have a new Instagram site @amyandval where we are posting pictures of our projects as we go!
