      I'm terrified of painting cabinets. I feel if it's not professionally done, it will peel or chip in no time.

    From a design standpoint, I'm not sure that panel (I'm guessing by the look of it, it's made of plywood?), not a good choice for long-term kitchen.... Terrible to clean and might quickly turn into a mold problem...

    • Melissa Clark

      I would have gone with a simple stencil and use a high gloss paint so it's cleanable and more practical for a kitchen

It would be amazing to have you guys redo my room. every year on my birthday and Christmas I ask to get my room done by you knowing it won’t happen (likely), but pray and hope a miracle will appear. I love you guys so much ❤️!!!! Love Aileigh

    Question: why did you not choose a chalk paint for the cabinets? As you don’t have to sand or deglaze any surface. I’ve seen some amazing redos using it the kitchen. Just wondering from a design and redo perspective. Thanks! ❤️

    This was an incredible transformation! I’ve been talking to my mom about helping her redo her own! The problem we have is the countertops are THE WORST!!!!! So if, you, Mr. Kate, or anyone has any advice on how to fix those on a budget, you would be a life saver!! (Obviously removing them and adding new counter tops would be the first thought, but if there is a fun and fresh new way to cover them, and really give them a better look without demolishing the kitchen that would be greatly appreciated!)

    Looks great but the chalk painted brick look will become very dirty with oil and pasta sauce splashes and will be very difficult to clean.

    I died a little when he put that panel up with a janky hole cut around the switch plate. You have a screwdriver. Take the plate off and move the lightswitch box up. That is so sloppy.

    I love it. New subscriber. I really need to redo my kitchen. I love the two tone look. I painted my cabinets white 14 or 15 years ago and the paint is chipping now. It wore well a long time though. I repainted my knobs too, though, and they didn't wear as well. Didn't have the money to buy new. Painted a faux tile backsplash. Took me a week alone... removing stipple and wallpaper from the kitchen, dining and entry. Now I have kids. Likely won't find time to renovate again. :(

    I believe you two should organize/remodel a garage or a dirty old shed. Makes for a very creative space indeed! I can she the brainstorm clouds or rainbows 🌈 already forming!!
