We’ve been working on a home DIY project for a few weeks.  We’re painting our old, dated kitchen cabinets a bright new shade of Daisy Dew, courtesy of Dutch Boy Refresh Paint.   

The cabinets were an old, brown “paneling-look” style that I’m sure we all remember from the 70s.  The new cream color is much more appropriate for a cozy country kitchen, and really brightens up the entire room by reflecting light.

Since we’ll be installing new cabinet handles and drawer pulls, there isn’t any hardware shown in the after pictures.

The wallpaper on the walls is also eventually going to be removed and the walls painted instead.  The bottom cabinets will be painted to match as soon as the new laminate countertop is installed (which is cozily residing in the garage right now!).

Here are the before and after photos for our DIY painting project.

Overall, a pretty amazing transformation for our kitchen.  Even my husband and daughter would stand and stare at the kitchen for days after it was completed!  Thanks again to Dutch Boy Paint for supplying us with the Refresh Paint for this home DIY project.
