I really have a desire to paint my kitchen cabinets. I've seen so many bloggers post transformational pics of their kitchens. Just a few minor details can really change the look of a kitchen. We don't have the money to put in new cabinets, but painting them can really give our 80s kitchen a face lift and make the cabinets last much longer.
So, painting cabinets is on my "to-do" list. I don't know when we'll get this project done. I'd like to say by summer, but definitely by the end of the year. Part of the time frame will also determine when we can purchase new counter tops, because if you'll remember, our current counter tops are off-white, which won't match what I really want to do.
I've been looking at lots of pics to try and determine exactly how I want to paint them. I have red dishes and lots of black accents, so I wanted to choose something that would work with that. I really love white cabinets with black counter tops like these.
My only concern is that my black coffeepot, mixer and knives may not look good sitting on black counter tops. So, I could go with a lighter counter top like this:
But I really love that black counter top! What do you think? Have you seen any kitchens you love?
