LeAnn’s white kitchen already had a lot going for it–subway tile, hardwood floors, and a farmhouse sink. But she loves color and wanted more of it in the room. She also needed a way to display more of her fun vintage finds. So she painted the lower cabinets turquoise and removed some of the doors from the upper cabinets.
LeAnn recommends Valspar kitchen and bathroom paint for painting cabinets: “It’s an enamel with a finish between a satin and a semi-gloss and it was one coat. Love, love, love this paint and the best part, a quart was only $13.00!”

Doesn’t this kitchen look like a happy place to cook in?
