White Kitchen Reveal

I am so excited to show you all my new white kitchen!
We still need to do the countertops, but that may be a while,
so I couldn't wait any longer.







We removed all the doors and painted them in the garage.
We started painting by hand, but soon realized a paint gun 
would be worth the money.  
Brian ran to Home Depot and bought one.  
We loved it, and it did a great job,
but we made the HUGE mistake of not covering the
floor and everything else too.
(I must also add that we tried to use the paint gun about a month later
and it wouldn't work, not sure why but it may have been too cold, or we didn't clean it enough).



We lived like this for a week.









But the results were so worth it.
The kitchen feels so much bigger and brighter.






I actually really liked my red cabinets, but they made the kitchen feel dark and dated.  
Before:

We painted the dining table too.  
I love how fresh everything feels.






I am trying to decide if we will do the countertops in granite to match the island, or if we will do wood. 
Neither is in the budget right now.

Before:





The color we used is Cotton Fluff by Behr in semi gloss.  
It is a creamy white.
We used 3 coats of paint, and then a couple of coats of polycrylic.



I found this hutch on Craigslist and painted it to match the cabinets.

Even on gloomy days, this kitchen is so bright.
