And I really love them!
Now I'm soliciting opinions. (Before and after shots attached)
I at first wanted to stain them but seeing as staining takes for ever and they aren't real wood I went with solid paint.

Should I paint the 2 doors in the kitchen as well?


and this took my entire weekend! wao

You did a super job!!! I would keep all trim work and doors white. Your countertops and cabinets look great! And you cannot tell them are not real wood now.

Congratulations on a job well-done!! The Tuscan color on the walls is nice, too.

Wow, we have the same kitchen. Or, had. Your transformation is amazing!

How did you do it?!!??! What did you put on the laminate doors -- and how many coats did it take?

That's a really trippy kitchen. Between the angled countertop and the three doors packed in with each other I don't know if I could take it.. but it's definitely a look of quality.

Hey Thanks Guys

I sanded the doors and counter top... for most of them anyways (i got tired so some got less than good sanding) And it was like 3 to 4 coats of paint.

And yeap I think I will keep the doors and trimming the way they are. I don't think I want to pick up a brush for a while. jej

So you sanded the laminate doors and then primed and painted? I've been wanting to paint the laminate doors in my bathroom, but didn't know if it would work.... (Your kitchen looks beautiful, BTW!!! )
