So, over the past… ummm.. year… we decided to give them a little facelift.
Here’s a reminder of what we started with.
The cupboards were painted with Behr Premium Plus in white. On the melamine surfaces (backs of the doors and sides of the cupboards) I primed with a great primer by Glidden called “Gripper”. Two coats of primer with a couple of hours dry time between coats. Then I waited several days for the primer to cure before coating them with the semi-gloss white paint.

When I painted the walls, I didn’t paint the kitchen front door. But a few weeks ago, I decided to paint it a few shades darker than the walls. My husband doesn’t really like it as he thinks it’s too dark.
I don’t mind the colour, though. The one thing I do mind, though, is the carpet at the front door. It collects lint like crazy and takes ten million years to vaccuum off. I guess it serves me right for paying only paying $10.00 at walmart.
