Leigh Updates Her Oak Kitchen Cabinets With Caromal Paints…

We love seeing painted kitchen cabinet makeovers, by homeowners themselves, don’t we?

Hi Patty,

Thank you for your help in choosing the paint for my kitchen project.  I love the way it all turned out!  I thought you might like to see the before and after pictures!    Thank you!!   Leigh  Farmington Hills


Probably what I see the most – honey oak…

In lovely condition, and very functional…  maybe lacking a certain freshness

Did you realize that was the same kitchen?  Go back and look…

Amazing what a little paint, and DIY power can do

LOVE everything about this one!   Leigh chose Textured Basecoat Chocolate for the lower cabinets in the main area, and the uppers are Reclaim Off White with a little Reclaim Pebble to grey them down a bit

Notice she added beadboard to her island

I did the same thing at my last house – tied my whole kitchen together using the same hardware, even though I’d painted my island different than the rest of the kitchen…

Well thought detailing – ‘feet’ added to give the appearance of furniture –  again, love the beadboard

  1. That is LITERALLY my exact kitchen with a teeny few differences (I put in a range hood and took out the microwave above stove), and we only have half of the cabinet section that she painted all white with the wood counter. That is also exactly what I want to do with my cupboards….even the same colors….and the adding beadboard backsplash…..and beadboard to the sides! Amazing. Can I ask how much of each color you used….and where did you get that cabinet that you sat on the counter when you took out the hanging cupboards? I wanted to do the same thing.

    • Amy, how perfect is that, then , when you can find something visual that helps you get to your end result too? I have e’d her back to see if she can inform us where she got the side cab, and how much paint she used – i showed her ordering 2 qts of chocolate textured basecoat, and 1 qt reclaim offwhite, and 1 8 ounce sampler of reclaim pebble, then awhile later she ordered another gallon of offwhite reclaim – I’m thinking she got far w/the quart, then got to her server area and needed more, but ordered the gallon figuring she had other projects. when i hear back from her i’ll let you know –

      • Leigh emailed me back – “I used 2 quarts of chocolate on the lowers and just a little less than a gallon on the uppers. The pebble was used to add to the off white to grey it down a little.

        The cabinet on the counter is a ready to assemble cabinet made by Conestoga. I ordered the cabinet via Cabinet Authority on line and my contact there was Rick Haylon. I was very happy with both the quality of the cabinets and the customer service they provided. Hope all is well with you! ” (I love her!!!!)
