Trend alert! It seems like everyone on Pinterest is filling their boards with inspiring colorful kitchens with sleek modern accessories. I spy a hot trend this year with many DIYers wanting to get the look themselves. So today we’re going to take a look at my favorite kitchen cabinet paint colors, and some inspiring DIYers who have documented their kitchen renovations. I’m kind of obsessed with the two toned cabinet trend right now. And since my last house was a completely white farmhouse kitchen, I’m thinking of doing something completely different with our next house. at the moment I’m really in love with the idea of mixing craftsman and modern to get a really bold & cozy design. Here are a few of my favorite two toned cabinet makeovers from some DIY friends!

Two Toned Painted Cabinets
The two toned cabinet treatment is a great way to add some character to your kitchen. I originally started seeing the two toned kitchen trend with islands that were painted a different color than the kitchen. But if you don’t have an island, or even if you do, this is a stylish solution to grounding your kitchen. I love that you kind of get this look of an open, airy space without having to take out the upper cabinets. And if you’re just not gutzy or organized enough to have open shelving, this two toned cabinet idea could be your compromise. Pair your new style with some modern metal pulls and fabulous white subway tile to pull off this look.
Are You Gutzy Enough for Open Shelves?
A kitchen equivalent of a mullet maybe? Business on the bottom, party on top. If you can handle keeping an organized kitchen and want to give it a fresh update for very little money, consider taking the upper cabinets down. Replace the uppers with some open shelving, and be sure to use your new open kitchen shelving as a point of interest in your home. Add art & stylish kitchen finds. But to avoid dust, be sure to only keep items on your open shelves that you tend to use often, like everyday wear. I had open shelves in my last kitchen and I had no problem keeping the dust off of them. I just stored my every day dishes within reach, and the top shelves were used for decor that I swapped out frequently.
This kitchen has a little of both. Two toned cabinets with some open shelves. I love the black sconces over the window! and the use of space above the cabinets! It’s like having that extra cabinet space without actually putting cabinets up there. Ingenious.
I love the farmhouse nod in this kitchen. It’s very Joanna Gaines without the pricetag I’m sure! That blue works really well with the butcherblock countertop too! And DIYing a shiplap wall is super simple and inexpensive. I did it in my powder room for maybe $30!
When we get into our next house, I’ll be so excited to share it with you! I’m getting a bit ancy with nothing to do! I went to a friend’s the last few days to help her with some diys. She has a gorgeous farmhouse table that was given to her. We’re gonna make it prettttyyyy and then I want to share it with you!
