Budget-Friendly Kitchen Cabinet Paint Over Ideas

Painting kitchen cabinets should not be a complicated job, but it should not be handled lightly. It’s a lot to choose the proper finish and commit to change, especially if you’re not a DIY aficionado.

There are calm rooms that demonstrate the need for elevated minimalism, as well as more vivid interiors that may seduce even those who are color-averse. These refinished kitchen cabinet before-and-afters will give you the push you need to get started.

1. A Nautical Kitchen with an Artistic Twist

Green and bronze tones that are widely utilized in celadon pottery can be applied to your kitchen cabinets. After removing the paint from the doors, blanket them in Valspar’s Cactus Shadow with a spray gun.

2. Mustard on the side

To save money, you can buy a gallon of paint and embrace your funky past by adding a mustard coating to just about everything, including the drawer knobs.

3. Minty Cool

Replace your outdated, black granite countertop with clean, white laminate. Then, to improve the mood in the room, paint the cabinets a light turquoise and cover the rest of the wall in pink acrylic.

4. The French Blue

Keep the old cabinetry in your townhouse and paint them in Benjamin Moore’s Solitude to save money. The color was inspired by a trip to Paris, where the designer spotted several blue-gray front doors.

5. More Vibrant Than Ever

Painting dark cabinets white is a difficult task, but it’s worthwhile if you’re ready to put in the effort. Prep the surface with medium sandpaper, then STIX the doors and apply multiple layers of Benjamin Moore’s Chantilly Lace in a smooth finish.
