You are talking to one happy woman right now. Kitchen cabinets, painted. Check. (Click here to read the details and step-by-step info.) Dishwasher front completed (and fixed) (Click here to read in detail.) Check. Spray painted Ikea light fixture installed above sink. Check. Glass panels inserted into cabinet doors and fabric covered foam core board placed behind dishes. Check. Laminate flooring installed. Check. Counter tops installed. 1/2 Check.

Cabinet Paint color: Sherwin Williams, "Creamy" in a semi-gloss latex alkyd paint.
Beadboard- purchased in 4'x8' sheets at Lowes
Granite: "White Kashmir"
When we did that, we realized two light fixtures would look dreamy over top of it so we changed out those. We purchased simple barn light fixtures at Lowe's for $30 each. I spray painted them with primer, then a copper spray paint. Finally I sprayed them all over with oil rubbed bronze and once dry, I lightly scuffed them with a soft sanding block to reveal some coppery texture beneath. Fitted inside each barn light pendant, are Edison decorative bulbs. We love it!
