Kitchen With Green Cabinets

14 January 2011

Kitchen With Green Cabinets
contributed by This House We Call Home


My goal was for my kitchen to welcome people!  I love the colour!

Well, it is Finally done! Or, as done as it is going to be for awhile. There are some finishing touches that I will add over time, but for now my kitchen is done & I'm loving it! I took the time to declutter, delete things I wasn't using and to really organize all the cabinets. You can click on this Link to peek if you want to see some before shots. I will be adding more before shots with information on what I did.


Everyday I walk into my kitchen and feel Happy! The colour of my cupboards makes me smile everytime I look at them! I love the wall colour...I was really going for that clean swedish look yet still be cosy! Our house sits on a heavily treed lot and is a challenge to me when it comes to choosing colour! But thankfully, I am happy with the results!

  
Even on the dullest days in November my kitchen is still cheerful!


 
For a galley kitchen it is very spacious!


Okay, I realize my fridge looks messy...but beside it to the left is an area for your laptop and more open shelving.



I love my beadboard which I know is hard to see.  In my next post, I will show more before & after shots.

 
I love my floating shelves!  I bought them at Mardens for $10 each and only had to paint them white.  They hold my new everyday dishes perfectly.  The white glass cabinet is a work in progress.  The inside is mactacked & I need to paint over it. Vintage 1970! 
 
 
 
I love my new yellow cabinet that I bought for $5 at a yard sale.  It is a hospital bedside table which I painted.  The Ikea shelves above I purchased on Kijiji for $20

We added new countertops & the microwave above the stove.

This cupboard is one my brother in-law Paul built for me many years ago.  I didn't want to paint it as it had aged to a beautiful honey pine.  But it didn't look so good anymore in my new kitchen so I painted it this lovely yellow...which was actually a colour I had chosen for my cupboards but then changed my mind.

This dining set was given to us by my mother inlaw.  However, we hope to paint it at some point as the top isn't in such great shape.   I had worried it would look to old & dark, but I actually like it!  I love my vintage tablecloth.  I've had it for years and only bring it out for Thanksgiving.  So, I am enjoying using it on this table.

Oh...I have to say a big thank you to my friend Heidi who took the photos for me!  She is a great photographer and has a beautiful camera!  All my pictures were dull looking!  So Thank you!

What a great looking kitchen! I do love that green color! I painted my little wanna be island in my kitchen a very similar green! They did a wonderful job!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

I've always wanted green cabinets. For Christmas, my husband got me a paint sprayer--between your post and that, I'm inspired to make it happen.

I can't even tell you how much I love this color combo--the cheery green and the lovely light blue- just gorgeous!

Your kitchen is one of the happiest I've ever seen! SO PRETTY! I'm so glad that it was shared on remodelaholic! I'm having a little give away if you would like to check it out.

Excellent, excellent color choice! This def. looks like it should be in a magazine!

Wow, thank you everyone for the kind words! My goal when I started was to smile everytime I walk into my kitchen! I accomplished that on a really tight budget! My house is very shaded, so the colour choices were important to me. I really learned a lot from this blog on how to paint the cupboards. By the end of it, I could cut in like a pro!

Congrats Wendy on being recognized by this blog. Our kitchen does look beautiful. It took alot of work from both of us from getting old tile and plywood off the backsplash, a huge amount of painting of cupboards, walls and trim and installing new countertop, shelves, knobs, trim, kitchen sink taps, etc. Thanks to Linda for donating the new sink taps, thanks to Heidi for the camera shots as you've already noted and thanks to both you and myself for all the hard work and last but not least thanks to the kids for putting up with a disaster kitchen during the renovations.
Love, your husband.

Love how it all came out! You will not mind cooking for at least a week! I have an idea...It would really set off your paint color to paint the wall behind your floating shelves in a black chalkboard paint! Just thinking...
