Project idea: painting cabinet interiors

I’m like a shark. I can’t stop swimming (or in my case, home improving) or I will die.

So my newest survival project is to paint the interiors of the kitchen cabinets. I love how some background color makes the dishes pop and feel as though it adds dimension to the kitchen (which ours desperately needs).

It’s sort of an unconventional idea, but it’s one I’ve been obsessed with since I first saw the idea in practice while attending a neighborhood block party a few weeks back. I played the role of kitchen creeper, taking photos of my neighbor’s way-cool kitchen for a majority of the party. Theirs was similar to ours as far as size, layout and and cabinet finish, and I was very impressed with some of the things they did to give it some gusto. But the cabinet paint took the cake. It must me implemented!

Seriously, how fun does that look?

White kitchen gets spunky with lime green cabinets.

Blue wallpaper is another idea that’s kinda cool.

I love the affect of painting the entire cabinet interior, not just the back but the sides, bottoms and tops, too.

Splashes of color without being overpowering.

Cabinets with green. I’m on the fence on whether to go lime green or turquoise.

Yep. Painting the insides of the cabinets is the way to go.
