Kitchen make over...work in progress

Its been a busy easter at our house, as my husband had a few days off we thought it was the perfect time to repaint the kitchen and do a few other jobs.

Paul spent 2 days making this new daddo rail around the oven. I still need to paint it white but that will have to wait until the weekend when I have more time.



The big job for me was to paint my kitchen cabinet, we bought this when we first got married and I felt it was time for a paint job so I transformed it from this.......






to this. What do you think? Its still not completely finished as I just finished painting the doors and they need to dry but I couldn't wait to show you how it looks so far. The colour is called Scallywag.






I also painted the walls, they were a lovely soft green but after 6 years I was tired of that colour so now the walls are light blue. The correct colour is called Feather by Taubmans.



Its amazing how a room can change with just a few alterations and a new coat of paint, when I have painted the new wall around the oven I'll share the after photos.


Have a great week.

Hubby did a great job with the daddo rail, they are a favourite design feature of mine. The dresser came up beautifully. I have some similar pieces but am hestitant to paint them in case they look less than well done. After seeing yours I think when I get a house to suit they would be worth the time & effort. The red crockery looks so fun on the white. Tracee xx
