Our dining room has functioned as a few different rooms since we moved in. We moved from a 1000 square foot apartment to a 1700 square foot townhome. Shortly after we moved to a 2600 square foot home. Needless to say we didn’t have enough furniture to fill our home. We focused on our upstairs as that was about all we could furnish. We had one table so that went in the kitchen and we did not own a dining room table. So….the dining room was my daughter’s playroom at first! Here is what the dining room looked like before we moved in.Read More

Today is the day I have been talking about for quite some time!! Today is the day I get to share my kitchen makeover! This is a project that I have been wanting to do for quite some time and I’m so excited that it’s done! Painting a kitchen is a tedious job but I wouldn’t take back the blood, sweat and tears that went into this project! Haha it wasn’t that bad! It was actually quite easy! Stay tuned for a detailed how to on painting your kitchen cabinets with a paint sprayer and Sherwin-Williams paint.
Just a reminder here is what the before looked like:
I’m a firm believer that anything can be fixed with a nice coat of paint! Throughout our house we have oak woodwork and trim. It is such a large project to tackle so I’m trying to live with it as much as possible. I did cave and I ended up painting my kitchen cabinets though! One other thing I couldn’t live with was the the wood front door and the door to the garage…because it was painted on! The previous owners decided to paint a wood like finish onto the doors to match the rest of the house. I guess it seemed like a good idea but it was very obvious it was paint and not actual wood. It was one of the first projects I wanted to complete because I just couldn’t stand the look of it. The outside of the front door was white so I also wanted to give our curb appeal a little bit more color. I shared this project back in October over at Old House to New Home, you should go check out Amanda’s delicious blog full of recipes and DIY tutorials!
