Kitchen Progress and Inspirations

Right now, this is what the new kitchen looks like. 


It’s all primed and getting ready for some pretty paint.  Here’s specifics about the paint.

Most of the kitchen cabinets and all the trim are going white, Benjamin Moore’s White Dove, to be exact. 

The island is going a dark gray, Sherwin Williams Dovetail.  And all those gold walls will be Behr’s Gentle Rain (we have that in our current house and I love it.) 


Grant is doing all the painting.  Himself.  And he is thrilled about it.  And that was sarcasm.  But we are using a paint sprayer for all the drawers and doors.  So hopefully that will save time, and give a smoother finish.

New countertops are part of the mix too.  We are just not exactly sure what though.  I’m kinda digging these. 

DuPont™ Corian® and Martha Stewart Living™ at The Home Depot

Or something to that effect anyway.  I haven’t done too much research into what I want, I just know I want it light.  We will probably make that decision this next week or so I hope.  And then two weeks, later, BAM, new countertops.

Below is my inspriration, mostly from Pinterest.  Hopefully, in the end, our kitchen will look something like some of these bad boys. But probably on a more budget-friendly-and-less-grand type of scale.










  1. Hi! I randomly came across your blog When I googled behr gentle rain. I happened to recently paint my kitchen that color too! I have been wanting to paint my cabinets off white or white but wasn't sure if I can pull it off bc I have never done it before. Please let us know how it goes! Thanks!

  2. Like. Like. Like. :) Can't wait to see the progress! Russ says you are painting the cabinets the best way, and that the finish will look great!

    L is begging to write C a "letter" so I hope to send one this week. Take care!


I love hearing from you! Thanks!
