Don't you just love white kitchens?

I do.

So clean and classic.

With a touch of color, you can transform your white kitchen from being too sterile to warm and inviting.

So when we bought our oak wood-filled house in July, we transformed this

into this

and this

to this

I didn't do anything major. I wanted to paint the kitchen myself but with a little research and help from my best friend Craig (Craigslist that is!), I decided to hire a professional. He did a good job painting the cabinets inside and out. Other than paint, the only thing I did was to reposition and change the hardware. The knobs are from anthropologie and the cup pulls are from overstock. Not bad, right?

I mentioned that our house is filled with 80's oak wood. I wasn't kidding. It was so overwhelming that I even submitted a question on Apartment therapy. Check it out here , here and lastly here. Thanks AT! You have inspired me to keep going. Stay tuned, this is just the beginning...
