Back in Black

Leslie’s kitchen was sporting an overabundance of yellowy oak cabinetry: the kitchen equivalent of sweatpants.  Easy.  Boring.  Unflattering.  And a little grungy.  So she decided to give it the little black dress treatment instead with Benjamin Moore Onyx and a mouse sander to show off its curves and edges.  Insta-glam!  And now I’m inspired … to go put on my little black sweats.

  1. All I can say is WOW!

  2. Oh, much better!!!

  3. We went from white, painted and repainted falling apart cabinets to new cabinets this year. I chose espresso color, perhaps because it was the opposite of what we had. And maybe just because dark cabinets are gorgeous!!!

  4. FAB!

  5. OOOOOOH! AAAAAAAAAH! These are gorgeous and very nicely done! Congrats and enjoy!


  7. This looks fantastic! I wonder if she got a new black stove since all her other appliances appeared to be black to begin with.

  8. GORGEOUS make-over! I have boring oak cabinets in my kitchen and some day I hope to convince my husband we need to paint them black!

  9. wow, hard to believe its the same kitchen.. amazing what paint can do…

  10. Thanks everyone! I did not get a new black stove yet. It’s in the plans though.

  11. Love the black kitchen redo! And I LOVE your comment comparison about the yellowy-toned cabinets to sweat pants! I’m laughing and laughing and laughing! Why? Because I see tons of that type of kitchen around here and cringe every time! Eeewwww! Now I’ll secretly laugh about the “sweat pants look” too 🙂

  12. Oh my what a difference. Does not even look like the same kitchen.
