Kitchen Cabinets Makeover (Finished)

I first painted my kitchen cabinets two years ago!  You can read about that here and then my starting on repainting them here.  I love them painted.  But for me, the chalk paint was difficult to clean and the Old White color was not crisp enough in color.  I've discovered I like a very crisp white.

I painted the upper cabinets yesterday and am very happy to have that all done.

It's clean and crisp, and the paint (Magnolia Paint by Kilz in True White for Trim and Cabinetry) goes on well and cleans up beautifully.  Since I've done the cabinets bit by bit, I've had lots of opportunities to wipe messes off of them!

Now to seriously look for hardware for them.  I have 14 cabinet doors and 9 drawers in my kitchen.  That's a lot of hardware!


  1. That's a lot of hard work painting cabinets! They are beautiful, so clean and crisp and bright!

  2. They look beautiful! It will be fun to find the just-right hardware.

  3. They look wonderful. Do you have any discount hardware stores? That “jewelry” can get pricey.

  4. SO pretty and fresh! Mine are white and that's my favorite:) Have a blessed day, HUGS!

  5. I am thinking of painting my cabinets. How did you prep them before the milk paint?

  6. I'm jealous! They are beautiful! By the time we get around to it, wood will be back in style, I fear.....

  We are finally getting some blue skies with real clouds, and sunshine! I took sometime with Kyle and Kamryn's help to set up the deck ...
