Painting Kitchen Cabinet Face Frames: Part II

Day 14: November 12, 2012

The next day we painted the cabinet faces with the actual cabinet color.  We went in circles trying to select the right color.  First it was white, then grey, then we toyed with the idea of doing a color like this.   After going through a billion paint swatches and browsing kitchen photo after kitchen photo, we finally found the right color.

Friends, I introduce you to Battenberg by Benjamin Moore.  Not too white, not too yellow.  Just the right color we had in mind.

The paint we used was also by Benjamin Moore and recommend by the staff at Hirshfields for the purpose of painting existing cabinets.

Again, we painted with a brush and mini roller with two coats.  It’s difficult to really see the color in these photos.  It still looks white, right?   It’s a little easier to tell in the close up shots.

Finally, I will leave you with a before, middle and after photo.  The true cabinet color will be better portrayed once the doors and drawers are painted and the walls are painted.  I know, I know.  I am  impatient when it comes to this stuff, too.  More updates coming your way!
