  1. This awesome! Wow girl! It really turned amazing! I have been debating doing this myself but it seems so overwhelming. I had thought about doing the cabinets one weekend and then the doors the next. I work full time so I really only have weekends to work on it.

    Thanks so much for posting this!!

  2. Such a beautiful makeover, Destiny. Thanks so much for sharing your tips. Your kitchen looks so much bigger and brighter now. You must be thrilled!

  3. Beautiful Job as always just about to redo my kitchen…. hate the cabinets there dark brown formica anyway thanks for posting all that information that was a workout in itself,,,,,,have a great day ttys…….

  4. This is a great tutorial. I really like the mix of black and white cabinets. Thanks for hopping me to the hardware tool. I didn’t realize suc a thing existed.

  5. It’s settled! I’m re-doing my kitchen this summer. Hooray~your photos were just what my husband needed to see and he agreed to it. My kitchen is now the EXACT same (even down to the knobs on the cabinets) as your before photo. I can’t wait! I will do the lower cabinets in black and uppers in white since we don’t have an island. All I care about is saying goodbye to the honey oak. 🙂

  7. I love your place….love…love….no wonder took you to my place.
    Also I was trying to find your tutorial on the wall signs but takes me to the kitchen cabinets one….I would love to steal the idea and learn as well.

    But in the mean time I’ll attempt the feathery accent…gorgeous….will post once I’m done 🙂

  8. Wow. I am really impressed. That looks so professional. Well done. So–question for you on that sprayer. Do you think it would work well to spray paint an entire room like a bedroom or bathroom? Or would it take a really long time? How small of a compressor can I use? What else do you use your compressor for (trying to justify buying one here 😉

  11. This looks fab! I am wondering if your cabinets “stick” at all, or if the paint coats feel really thin and dry. If you know what I mean? I lived in an older house in college and the cabinets were painted white. They kind of stuck together and sometimes the paint would come off due to the sticking. I’m sure it was a bad paint job, but let me know, as I would love to do this!

  12. So thrilled for you! Truly an awesome job. I did the same thing to a kitchen for my daughter last summer. I can’t say enough about the benefits of using an HVLP sprayer. Wish I had bought one years ago. Just one note, maybe I missed it, but I used a turntable to place the cabinet doors and drawers on. This way you can stand in one spot while you turn and spray them. Then lift off from underneath and move to a drying location.

  13. I had my cabinets sprayed using the advance and they are chipping like crazy! What’s worse is that bc the spray has a different finish, when I do touch up, it’s totally obvious. Very disappointed! I had them done last summer. I’m eventually going to lightly sand all the doors and paint a layer by hand.

    1. I have painted my cabinets twice. They started out a cream color and I painted them blue. Now I have painted them A light coffee color. I recommend you work in sections. Complete a section before you move on. You start to see the results and it keeps you going. It is a hard job but well worth it. It’s all in the prep work.

  14. Awesome! Found you on Pinterest…so glad I did! Impervo paint is great and we love it for doors and trim as well! You did great! Kudos!

  15. Looks awesome!! I would love to see something done with the door in the room. Maybe painted a pretty blue/gray or a chalkboard door. I feel like it’s off. Please dont take that as a criticism. I think you did an amazing job!

  16. Wow! Great tutorial! Thank you for all the details and pictures. I’m pinning… were buying a house and I just might be the one painting the kitchen cabinets!

  17. Destiny, I love your kitchen! So bright and cherry. We bought a husky sprayer as well, but we are having such a hard time with it. I have a few questions that I hope you have time to answer sometime 🙂 Do you thin your paint? How big is your air compressor? Thanks for your time!

  18. Your kitchen looks wonderful, what an inspiration! I am interested in the air compressor you used, do you have the specs on it? I have heard conflicting information on what size you need, I want to use the husky hlvp and your cabinets look great so I want to mimic your process. How are they holding up? Any need to touch up or repaint? Thanks for the great post.

    1. Let me check on that for you! Sorry so late! BUTTT I would say, if you can afford it or if your cabinets are new you should get a professional to do it!! It’s a lot of WORK!! lol!!!

  19. just found your blog…Thank you so much for posting this!! This is almost exactly the layout of MY KITCHEN & my cabinets! Such an inspiration.

  20. Love love love!!!!! Such a cute and helpful site….I’m planning to do my kitchen exactly as you did so was thrilled to see your photos….. One question…. Did you finish your cabinets off with a POLYURETHANE? They look fantastic!!!!!

  21. Love your kitchen! I have one question, what color is the black paint your used on your island? Thanks!

  22. Your kitchen looks amazing! I’ve struggled the past few weeks debating on whether to paint my kitchen cabinets myself or hire a professional. You have inspired me to take on the task myself! I know it’ll take time, but I’m a DIY kind of girl, so I know I can do it. Thanks for this great post!

      1. I loved YOU from the get-go. I plan to use my HVLP sprayer to spray my kitchen cabinets. I am borrowing it from my brother-n-law. I love your help. I never comment on things so it says lots about YOU! I will put you in my favorites! I couldn’t COMMENT in that specific section, so I am “replying”! Keep up the good work. I live in AZ also!
