Sometimes a project comes along when I’m out browsing blogland that just captures my heart and Edie’s kitchen has done that. I almost missed it and went by to see what she was up to when I heard about a painting party she was having. I missed the party, but not Edie’s gorgeous kitchen.
I had the privilege of meeting Edie at the Blissdom conference and she is a precious sister in Christ, who has a love for decorating and projects just like I do. Check out her blog Life in Grace, if you want some heart inspiration too.
Here’s Edie’s kitchen before she got ahold of the paint brush. And if this AFTER pic doesn’t show the power of paint, I don’t know what does!
Edie calls it the Retro Cottage Kitchen and I think she is right on. Isn’t it the cutest? I don’t have the nerve to paint my kitchen cabinets aqua, but I sure applaud Edie in her forward thinking and creativity with this space.
You’ll have to click over to Edie’s post on this kitchen to read all about the details (and there are plenty of budget details she shares) and see all the pics, before, after and in process. She took the old doors that she decided not to use on the upper cabinets and added them to the back of her island and painted it all black.
Go over and say hello to Edie, she’ll love for you to come by for a visit! Edie, it’s great girl, I just had to share your project with everyone over here.

Wow! You are right! The power of paint is an amazing thing! I am like you and would not have the nerve to paint it aqua but it is gorgeous! I am going to paint my hutch, white soon, and it took a while to make that decision. Good for her!
What a gorgeous transformation! I need Edie to come over and makeover ours. She did an awesome job!

I love the aqua. It gives such a nice pop of color and makes the room festive and fun! I like her boldness. It paid off here. 🙂

Your kitchen is 100% southern style. Great ideas! I am remodeling my kitchen using white and teal walls, white cabinets, black appliances and black quartz countertops. My backsplash is white and teal glass tiles. I hope it chills! Who knows I might have to start over. (I hope not).
