are you looking for a little kitchen makeover without having a huge remodel on your hands?

well, i have just the idea for you!

when worker man and i were painting the kitchen before we got married, we took all the doors off the cabinets and repainted everything.  well, while the doors were off, we started to like the idea of what it looked like without the doors.

sooo, we decided to leave the doors off the cabinets that held our dishes and paint the back of the cabinets the same color as the walls.

it really would be such an easy project for the weekend!

and it definitely works for us since all of our dishes stay organized.

we have loved it.

so, my suggestion?  live on the edge!  take the doors off a few of your cabinets and go wild!  you won't regret it, promise!

head on over to Kristen's blog, We Are THAT Family, for more WFMW tips!


  1. I love this look. It's definitely good motivation to keep the cabinets tidy!

  2. Love that your dishes MATCH the wall color! Great tip!

  3. That's so sharp! Love it! I would love to do something like that in my kitchen. I don't have painted cabinets because their white-washed and I just can't bring myself to paint them!

  4. We did this when one of our doors broke. It does look nice, but yours is nicer because your dishes are prettier! :)

  5. I am in love with your paisley dishes. Where are they from??

  6. Thanks for the sweet comments about the dishes. They are from Bed, Bath and Beyond. And they are actually really inexpensive!
