DIY Kitchen Remodel: Painted Oak Cabinets, New Everything Else!

MrsShayneAugust 5, 2012

Hello and thank you for looking! I'm happy to announce that my 4 month kitchen remodel is done! I painted the oak cabinets myself and had new Ivory Sukuri granite countertops installed. My husband installed the new SS appliances and backsplash. The pictures aren't the greatest because I had to use my phone and iPad...

Overall, we LOVE our newly remodeled kitchen (and we're happy it's done!).

You did a great job! I had to do a double take to make sure it really was the same kitchen. Thanks for posting the pics.

We're considering painting our cabinets white, so it's good to see it turn out so well for someone else, and I love the granite too. It's a nice blend of dark and light tones.

It looks great. I love the granite too. Looks like your old cooktop was like mine. How do you like going from electric to gas?

Nice job! Say, what you do you keep in that little skinny door to the left of the dishwasher? How wide is it?

It's amazing how the "after" seldom looks like the original kitchen!

I love the color you chose for your cabinets, and I think it's mirrored in your unusual granite. (I dislike specks.)

Really lovely.
Enjoy!
