But what I always wonder after looking at a great update, or seeing a project completed online, is "how did that hold up over time?". Well today I'm going to answer that question for you! It's been 8 months since we painted our cabinets white, and we live hard in this kitchen. We cook probably 5-6 days a week, and with three kids they are always in and out of the kitchen!!
Here's a video tour of the kitchen cabinets so you can see it in person.
Overall the cabinets have held up fantastic! I have not done any touch ups so far, and there are really only a couple small spots that need it, mostly on the silverware drawer or by the sink that gets a lot of use.
This area is still bumped by stools so you can see a few nicks on the lower cabinets. This is very easy to touch-up, all I would do is clean the cabinets and then get a little paint and touch up with my favorite Purdy brushes.
I don't have to clean white cabinets as much as you would think. In fact I don't think these have yet gotten a full wipe down. I just use an all purpose cleaner (Mrs. Meyers is my favorite) when needed to spot clean. Easy peasy!
This is real life here, it's clean but I didn't stage it (note vitamins on the counter and lunch boxes on the fridge, this is how we roll).
It's a fresh, white kitchen that works so well for our family. I still can't believe looking at those dark original photos. This makeover is all about paint!
Have you painted your cabinets?? How are they holding up?
Until next time, stay creative!
