In The Kitchen!

Yes I turned our cabinets into a open show off area :)
Like I showed you yesterday, I want to open up the kitchen to look more modern and to give a clean, spacious appearance.

I got inspired by this photo at

I love that it can show off cute dishes and bowls..Even wine glasses!
You can hide stuff in cute baskets and set out recipe books for decor :)

Our Kitchen is really, really neutral right now..

I want to add a splash of color into the decor to give it a 
"I-want-to-be-in-here-and-cook" kind of look :)

However it still is a big improvement to the way it was..

Haha too green for me ;)

So today I started by taking down the two top end cabinets..
(I might do the other side of the sink too..but I want to test it over here first! Sometimes doing too much can ruin the effect!)

Unscrewing all the cabinets...the screws were pretty stripped so we had to use a
good old fashion screwdriver!

And next I took out the dishes and started to peel out all the shelf liner...

flowers anyone?
Then I took off the rest of the hardware...

Before painting, I had to lightly sand and fill the holes with hole filler
I unscrewed the hooks from the shelves and pulled the shelves out.
Wiped everything down with a damp paper towel to make sure that the paint adhered well.
The painting begins! I would suggest a primer but I didn't want to spend any money
on this project so I ended up using 3 coats of paint ;)
first coat of paint..
2 coats...
3 coats of paint!

Roxy and Rolie's Treats :)
Cookbook and Vases

I'm planning on doing the other side too!
The kitchen looks bigger since you can see the back of the cabinet!

In just a few hours our kitchen went from...

To this...
