I hated the builder grade oak colored cabinets so much because they blended in with our floors and granite. It made the whole house look yellow/orange. I really wanted to replace the whole kitchen with new cabinets but our cabinets were in good shape so refinishing them was the right choice. I decided on dark brown.. almost black paint for the cabinets. Not sure why in some of the pictures the cabinets look chocolate but in real life they are dark dark brown. I also added 5 inch crown molding on the top of the cabinets. I'm so glad i spent extra money there. They make the cabinets look custom.


Here are the pictures of the finished product:

       The picture above is much more true to the color of our dark cabinets.

Hey Kristen_Tater


We used Behr premium plus ultra and the color is french roast. We got the color from Home depot and it was recommended by one of the pros there. When we first painted it on our bathroom cabinets, I kind of freaked out because it was so dark but looking at it for a few days I couldn't imagine it going lighter. The color is gorgeous once you get use to loooking at it. It was such a dramatic difference for our kitchen.
