Kids Playroom/Guest Room is under way! Here’s the inspo board!

Painting Kitchen Cabinets + Tutorial

We love painting furniture so much so we established a business on painting furniture! When we first moved into our condo the kitchen cabinets were an off white yellow.  I was just scanning through some pictures and I found a picture of our kitchen when we moved in!  Check it out! Pretty sure the yellowness of them is because the previous owner smoked like a chimney inside...
