This is the ugly color my kitchen was before I painted it. I thought I had taken a picture of the cabinets before I painted them. But they were a dingy yellowish white. The walls were a dark cream.

And now my cabinets are a glossy white, with the walls a butter yellow. I was aiming for a little lighter yellow. But I love them. It looks so country in there now. The knobs had been brass colored and my wonderful husband spray painted them silver for me. And WOW!! the change a little spray paint did to them.

Now if I can just get him to finish hanging the doors back up and take the tacky nasty fan down. Who puts a fan in a kitchen? It does nothing but gets greasy then dusty. GROSS!!!

Next I think seriously of continuing the color yellow into the dining room since the two connects. Probably lighter but it has really brightened up this small kitchen.


  1. I literally love yellow in a home, I believe it adds so much comfort to the eye.


  2. I picked green for our kitchen and yellow for the living room but after seeing this I think I'm going to do the kitchen yellow. I love this!!

  3. Well let me say I'm usually not impressed with many paint colors as I've seen so many (remember I helped Billy paint so many new houses?!) Thena this is BEAUTIFUL!!! Yellow is one of my favorite colors anyways- but for a kitchen it's even better b/c it's just so cheerful and uplifting! You did a great job and I'm impressed with your painting skills- I imagine your Mom taught you didn't she? Billy said she was a great painter. I will have to show you some things he showed me... if I ever paint that room of mine! Love ya-

  4. Oh I meant to say the color of the yellow is what I liked... it's buttery like you said... I did Dylans nursey in pale daffodil a couple of years ago and I've never regretted it... everyone that goes in there says how happy and bright it is.

  5. it looks beautiful! Of course I do love yellow kitchens. :)

  6. I love the color! You did a wonderful job.

  7. Your kitchen looks so bright and cheery!

  8. Very fresh and crisp. Nice redo!
