We purchased our house and knew the kitchen would need a makeover right away! The cabinets were a golden maple wood color and the countertop was country blue formica...it was very 80's country from the wallpaper to the countertop.
I painted the cabinets with General Finishes Antique White Milk Paint and applied General Finishes Flat Out Flat Topcoat. We decided we wanted a warm and cozy feel and opted for the warmth of butcher block.
The transformation of our kitchen was amazing. We went from 80's country design to a chic, warm, and cozy kitchen.
