I’m still working away in my son’s bathroom, if you have been following along on Instagram I’m in the home stretch! In between coats of paint, I’ve been running over to my parent’s house across the lake to help my mom pick paint colors for a little kitchen refresh.
I thought I would show you some quick iPhone before shots today because I don’t think I have ever shared their kitchen here? My mom has been wanting to put a fresh coat of paint on her cabinets for a while now. They built this house the year I graduated high school, which yikes, was about 18 years ago now.
It’s hard to tell in photos but the cabinets are a very yellow/creamy color with an antique glaze/speckle situation happening. Unfortunately, they have started to peel and discolor in several spots.
This project got a little jumpstart when my mom came home this fall to find several inches of water awaiting her! Not the warm welcome home she was expecting. A pipe broke in their ceiling and their wood floors were completely destroyed. It’s hard to tell in these photos, but they are all buckled and the edges are curled up. It’s a little trippy walking in there right now, picture waves on a lake and that’s the state of their floor. You can kind of see it in the photo below. Since they have to replace all of the flooring, now seemed like a great time to freshen up the cabinets too!
The current floors were very warm toned, so she wanted to switch things up with a more neutral-toned floor similar to mine. You can see a sample in the photo below. Her honed black granite counters are still classic and work well in this space, so she decided a warm greige color would work well with the counters and new floors. The goal is to freshen up the cabinets with a bit cooler/less yellow tone and lose the antique look. We will also be swapping out the hardware for something more updated as well.
In the running for the cabinet color are Revere Pewter, Annapolis Gray, and Agreeable Gray. I painted a bunch of swatches for her and to be honest, I still don’t know what she is going to pick. They start painting this week so I’ll keep you posted!
The black cabinet pieces that function as their pantry in here will be staying black.
Her banquet seating area is getting a fresh coat of paint as well. I’ll be sure to share all the details when they finish up in the next few weeks, but it will be fun to see a fresh take on this space!
