Reveal: Kitchen Cabinet Makeover

We finally finished our kitchen cabinets!

The good news? I absolutely love the new DIY glass cabinet doors with dark cabinet backs.

The bad news? Our travertine backsplash isn't working for me anymore. But that's another project for another day...

For this makeover, we painted the cabinets Pure White by Sherwin Williams. Then we converted some of our existing doors to glass doors and painted the back of the cabinets with Valspar Hematite. We replaced the cabinet hardware with these pulls, the coordinating knobs and new soft-closing hinges.We purchased the glass from a local glass shop, and all 8 pieces cost us $85. Not bad!

Things are looking pretty spiffy in here, if I do say so myself!







Oh yeah, I forgot to add that we also upgraded the baseboards!


It's always gratifying to see where we started. Gosh, those yellow walls were not my cup of tea!

Anyway, I was really hoping that the travertine would work with my new colors, but I think it looks really yellow now. It was never a great match with the grey/white countertops, but now I think it really sticks out like a sore thumb. Do you agree? I was contemplating replacing it with the grey penny tile from the bathroom reno

Thoughts?
