I’m dreaming of a white … kitchen!

If there is such thing as a gorgeous and spacious cave, then this was it.  Sita had a beautiful kitchen, but the dark walnut floors paired with the knotty alder cabinets made even the sunniest days feel gloomy.  Like a brooding supermodel – lovely to look at but not much fun to spend time with.  I would know, I hang out with supermodels all the time.  (That’s not actually true).  But I’ll tell you what is true, this kitchen looks super amazing now!  See more on Sita’s blog The Family Room Design Studio.

  1. gasp! GORGEOUS!!!!

  2. Lindsey, thanks so much for featuring my kitchen! I hope all of your readers like what they see!


  3. Wow! I never stop being surprised at what a difference paint can make!

  4. Wow….. This is AMAZING.

  5. Very pretty. It is funny how people with dark kitchens are painting them white – and people with white kitchens are painting them dark colors and putting in that horrid tiny bathroom tile as a backsplash – and in a few years they will all be swapping colors again.

  6. I love the before AND after!

  7. Wowser!!

  8. The light cabinets really make the floor pop! Love it!

  9. This is gorgeous! The one thing I would change is the island seating.

  10. Absolutely gorgeous! Wish I could talk my husband into doing this to our kitchen.

  11. A beautiful transformation. I’d love to do the same to my kitchen!

  12. How does one go about painting 25 year old oak cabinets, removing the varnish in all of the creases?
    What are the steps? Sanding, prime, paint 2 coats? Was this done professionally or by Sita herself? Can you tell us which paint you used? And what finish? How long did it take?
    Thank you so much…

  13. How long did it take to sand down every little crease in the wood, then prime, and paint 2 coats by hand? Or was it spray painted? Can you tell what paint was used without leaving drips? And what finish? Etc… Can you share how you did it? I have older oak cabinets that would need so much sanding. Was there shading applied? Thank you!
