I'm horrible when it comes to design,so I can't help you there. I can't wait to see the after pics though!

I encourage you to go for it! It's only paint! I've thought about using a black/chocolate glaze on my oak cabinets but haven't gotten around to it! If you're really brave, you might think about removing the soffit above the cabinets. It might open up the room a little more and give you a space to display things (platters, big serving pieces, etc.) You could also do the elevated cornice over your window like the $17 kitchen! What were you planning to use on the counters and backsplash? I've always loved white cabinets with dark counters. The oak floors are a beautiful contrast too! The tan paint would be a good neutral background and let you bring in some of those red accents! Can't wait to see your creativity, Angela~best wishes!

I have been thinking a lot of this kitchen makeover. I have painted kitchen cupboards white and to have the table and chairs match we painted them white as well. (This was for a friend) I have thought of painting our kitchen cupboards white but with a 3 yr. old who loves dirt and the out doors, as well as a 18 mo. and another baby on the way I know that dirt and grime will show up so much more on white than the natural wood that I have now. So I am just saying consider the stage of life your family is in right now and is this the best choice for you and your family at this time? Would you consider painting the chairs as well to match? ( If it is not a antique or a table that belongs to your in-laws ) I think it would also look good if you painted the kitchen walls tan and brought in some red accents to start and see if you like it with the cupboards as they are. I have also seen cupboards that were white turn yellow. Looking forward to seeing the finished project.

White cabinets should brighten up the place. One thing to note. If you paint then white, it will cover the grain and if you want a stained look later, you will have to sand all the white off. The white is a "paint grade" which means it will cover everything. Very often "paint grade" paints are use to cover bad looking wood.

Good Luck!

I think before begin painting a cabinets, there are a few details must be taken for example, Are the cabinets painted now or are we finished with a stain and varnish (or lacquer)? If we are painted, do we want to paint them the same color? Take some time to visualize what we want our refreshed kitchen to look like before we decide. This could be an opportunity for us to not only get the cabinets cleaned up, but to completely change their look.

One thing to note. If you paint, then white, it will cover the grain and if you want a look colorful thereafter, you will have all white sand off the coast. White is a "paint grade", which means it will cover everything.

I always love to pain the kitchen cabinets because it make the kitchen colorful instantly without spending lots of dollars. It is too cheap to make the kitchen colorful.

We need to make sure the color of the paint you choose will match your kitchen theme and be best suited for the exposure of grease, grime, and dirt that is typical in a kitchen setting.
