Small Kitchen Magical Makeover

Print Friendly and PDF

I was going to do most of the work my self by painting the kitchen cabinets and walls. I was also going to line my cabinets and drawers with some fantastic high grade wrapping paper and seal with Mod Podge (intended for exterior furniture). I managed to get one cabinet done and then was hit with my first bout of vertigo (what a horrible experience!). Thankfully I have a fantastic contractor/ carpenter who helps me when I need him. So I gave him a jingle and he came running with his helper to save the day!

The whole project took about a week. My guys finished painting the cabinets, primed and painted the doors, painted the walls (Behr “glass of milk”), attached all the hardware and even built me a new side counter with a recycling station and some shelves!

I had already ordered new counter tops because ours were chipped, stained and absolutely gross. I did not have the budget to put in the quartz counters I wanted, so I decided to put in “woolamai brush matte” laminate that actually turned out to be perfect!

I decided to turn the nook into a little sitting area. We never eat in this area so this was a great way to re-utilize the space. I found a fantastic re-done settee that tied the colours in perfectly and a funky table that I painted with chalk paint.

I decided to have a “vintage seed packet” theme. I printed off some photos and mod podged them onto some small boards and put painted laser cut frames on them.

Some of these ended up on walls and some I attached to painted crates that go above the cabinets for additional storage

After finding some great “final touches” like vintage tins, hand painted signs, mirrors and a blingy clock,I could put it all together! We are absolutely thrilled with the end result! I’m amazed how much brighter and bigger the kitchen looks! I cannot thank Mark enough for saving the day and making it turn out way better than I expected!
