We bought this beautiful 100+ year old craftsman style home in PNW. While the house was overall good, the kitchen remodel that was done before left the kitchen dark.
Dark granite with cedar tone cabinets in PNW made the kitchen a gloomy place for my wife.
(Please don’t be fooled by professional pictures taken by stagers, in rainy PNW its rare to get that much light)
So we looked around options for a quick quality kitchen makeover while we decided on long term remodeling options. We read some horror stories about people who painted their cabinets and others that were extremely pleased by it.

Paint color we choose for our kitchen after multiple runs: Hazelnut Cream White
Color we used:
