Kitchen Cabinets Project: Painting the Inside For a Pop of Color!


Ever since I updated my kitchen canisters I've been dying to use the paint color someplace else in the kitchen. The light blue color compliments the kitchen table I hand-painted and obsess over, but doesn't match it perfectly. Which is just the way I like it, I don't like matchy-matchy, ever. 

I decided I would paint the inside of the kitchen cabinets with the glass doors. They are on either side of the microwave and directly above the revamped kitchen canisters (painted in the same color), perfection! I keep some of the pieces I collect (plates, cups, glasses, etc) in those cabinets and I thought they would look great with a light blue background.

Here they are before I painted them:
I used FrogTape to tape off the cabinets and protect the white paint (all the cabinets were painted white during our kitchen redo). 
I painted the inside of each cabinet with the light blue paint. It took a total of 3 coats to get the coverage I wanted. 
I let the paint dry overnight and in the morning I put the shelves back in. I could've painted these the same color blue (I've seen plenty of projects done that way), but I wanted to keep the shelves white to  tie in the rest of the cabinets. 
And that was IT. It was so quick and simple! Here is a closer look at both cabinets:
I think it does make a big difference. It brings the blue from the kitchen table into this part of the kitchen and of course it looks great with the blue kitchen canisters!
