Light and bright change in the kitchen

The kitchen has had a lot of changes since we moved into this house a little more than 2 years ago.  One of the first things I did was paint the cabinets, and add hardware.  We had 2 nice cabinets with glass front doors to display some pretty dishes.

Since I painted them, I have wanted to paint the insides of the cabinets too, especially since I started collecting some fiestaware and other vintage dishes.  As a temporary fix I had the backs lined with scrapbook paper.

Last week when I finally had the motivation to paint the cabinets, I also took off the 2 middle cabinet doors so I would have even more open storage to display pretty things.

Here is an "in progress" shot



Here the cabinets are NOW:






And a look back to see where we started, a very nice big open kitchen, but very brown!

You have been super busy girl! I have been debating on wether to tackle our cabinets as well. I wanted a creamy white and guess what!? You have the exact same granite as us and now I am thinking I really like it! If we end up staying here next year I will just have to try this myself! I also love the glass doors you added.
