White Cabinets!

When we bought our townhouse 5 years ago I really wanted white cabinets.  The upgrade was $3,000 so we had to rule it out. Honestly I wasn’t too heartbroken. I liked our brown cabinets and I’ve tried my best to keep our kitchen light and bright regardless. 
But in the back of my head I always knew I wanted to paint them eventually. To get your cabinets done right is not cheap though. I had some pretty high quotes! I finally decided to go with RJ Custom Painting (801-381-2057) He was really reasonable priced and totally knew what he was doing. He was also really easy to work with. We went with Decorator’s White by Benjamin Moore. 
It makes such a difference! I have all the hardware picked out and it’s on it’s way in the mail! 
I decided to go with modern bin pulls for the drawers.
and these classic cabinet knobs for the doors…
I’ve actually been working on lots of projects in my house and hopefully getting everything photographed in the Fall so I can’t wait to share the new house tour with you!

    do you mind if i ask, what is a average price range to have your cabinets painted? i am excited for your new house tour!

      I had quotes as high as 2,500 and as low as $900! I think around 2,000 is reasonable!

    Where did you get your kitchen table? I've been wanting a stainless steel top forever, but they are hard to find!

    I want to do this as well, but I am so worried about the wear and tear over time (ie, will it start to chip off or scratch?). Did you have those worries as well?

    Isn't it amazing what paint can do to a space? I love the white and I love the area rug under the table!
