The kitchen was one of the biggest projects in the house. I removed the hardware and fronts then used a primer, followed with Dutch Boy White enamel paint. I used the Zinsser primer which worked the best. I used some Kilz in the beginning but the store was out so I picked up this brand instead. It kicked but, the Kilz was fairly runny like paint whereas the Zinsser was thick like glue. I went with an enamel paint for easy clean up. One coat of each did the trick. I bought new pulls for the cupboards and drawers. I also painted the countertops with the Gianni Granite Bombay Black paint kit. It worked great and so far I haven't had any problems. I ran out of the top coat (polyurethane) and called the company they sent me another can the next day for free! It was a lot cheaper than a new countertop! We did get a new stove and fridge. The stove is my dream stove; gas with a convection bake oven with self-cleaning! It had 2 small dings so it was on clearance and was on super sale at Lowe's. The fridge is just a black fridge. We spray painted the vent fan above the stove to sliver to match the dishwasher and Phil installed a new faucet in the sink. I spent two days on my hands and knees scrubbing the floors. I thought they were brown when we bought it but they are actually light beige. I used a scrub brush and Borax on them to get them that clean. Nothing else could cut the dirt! The walls are painted Peace River from Ace Hardware as well. I thought the kitchen was white orginally, but really was the same dirty off white as the front room. Yuck!
