Two-toned cabinets are also in style these days. If you like this look, select a light color such as a creamy white or light gray for the top cabinets and a darker color such as a cobalt blue or even cranberry red for the bottom ones. If you're really adventurous, try color blocking your cabinet by choosing two bright shades that are on opposite sides of the color wheel—for instance, bright yellow and navy blue. Some designers are using the ombre trend on kitchen cabinets. Achieve this look by selecting one color and painting your cabinets varying shades of it. Chalkboard paint can also look cool on cabinets and will make it easy to record shopping lists and to-dos.
While the doors and drawers are drying, you can spray paint the frames. Make sure to sand and clean the frames before you begin spray painting them as well, and be patient in between each coat. Once your cabinets, drawers and frames are completely dry, you can reassemble everything.
When you're ready to get started, clear off your kitchen counters, empty your cabinets, and cover your backsplash and appliances. Remove all of the hinges, hardware, doors and drawers from your cabinets. Label each door with masking tape so you'll remember which one goes where and put all of the hardware in plastic bags so you don't lose anything. If you can fit a worktable in your kitchen, it will be much easier to paint the doors. If you don't have a large worktable, 2x4 boards propped on buckets or boxes will also work. If you don't have those materials, work on top of a drop cloth.
Distressed cabinets appear older than they are and work well in a shabby chic space. When distressing your cabinets, roughen them up using a key to create lines and indentations. An ice pick or fork can also work to create holes in the surface, or you can strike the cabinets with a chain to create indentations and other imperfections. Sanding can also give cabinets a worn appearance, especially if your cabinets are painted.
Once the primer has dried, you can spray on two coats of paint, but make sure to wait for the paint to dry in between each coat.
