Oh look at me now!

Ooh, I can hardly contain myself! In spite of all advice to the contrary, I decided to have a little preview of how my makeover will look when it's all done and dusted. Can I tell you how much I LOVE IT?

Here's a sneak peek:

as you can see, there's still painting to be done around the skirting



from this...


...to this!

I can't tell you how much restraint is required not to throw all the doors back on right now. But it's raining today, and I do have some concerns that the paint isn't quite cured enough (but shh, don't tell hubby or I'll get the "I told you so" speech!). But I'm so in love it's not funny.

Patience Kerri, patience!  Right, no more teasers until it's all back together again, I think promise. Truly :-)

  7. Hi Kerri. OMG...I can just imagine the result! I sooo can't wait to see it. You must feel so proud. It's so satisfying when you do all the work yourself (even if you do have no hair left at the end!).

  8. It looks absolutely fabulous Kerri!!! I love the new knobs you've put on too. I can't wait to see the whole thing. It's going to be a brand new kitchen... for the cost of some paint and knobs - now that's clever!

  9. If your little sneaky peeks are anything to go by, it must be looking amazing. Just look at the difference that lightness makes to the wall colour even. I love that the whole thing is a surprise!

  24. What a difference! I hope you have pulled a comfy chair into the kitchen so you can sit and stare fondly at it, cup in hand.

  25. That is beautiful Keri! It is goin to look amazing! It really makes everything so bright and clean doesnt it? I painted my kitchen cabinets white last year and I dont regret it at all.They still look so fresh and clean.

  27. Magnifique, no? You've done it again bel artiste. I can only imagine the hard work required to paint all your cabinetry. You won't know yourself when you've put them all back in and you feel like you have a brand new kitchen. I wanted to paint our old kitchen before we ever thought about renovating but the routing in the doors just wasn't a nice shape. Yours have a lovely shape, they look fantastic..Rxx

  31. Hi, I've just come across your blog and LOVED what you did with painting your kitchen! can I ask what paint colour and type you painted with and was it handpainted or sprayed? Great job! J
