  • The client’s realtor was a smart one and called us. We refinished this kitchen in our best seller Dove White. Didn’t take long for that SOLD sign to show up in his yard.

  • Wedding Veil White covered this kitchen perfectly. It is the softest of white outs. Coventry grey our most favorite grey looks perfect in the bathrooms. This home located in Tall Grass one of our top subdivisions.

  • Fun new Ball and Farrow color- Plumet Grey. What an amazing transformation. Look at how amazing each and every cabinets is aligned. Just waiting to get more after pictures with the walls painted Simply White then the cabinets will be show stoppers.

  • We offer a cost saving option called the Rapid Refinish. The client removes and rehangs doors and drawers per Tupelo Lane Designs direction and they receive a discount. Great option for the DIYer who is nervous to paint their cabinets (and they should be) but wants to be part of the process and save a little money.

  • Wonderful size kitchen with plenty of storage but the client wanted to define some of the areas. This is the part I love- working with color to add interest. The perimeter of the kitchen is finished in Simply White. The Buffet area and the bar are finished in Coventry Grey.

  • The number one realtor in Brookdale (Ruth Sheehan) had her client give us a call to get a quick kitchen update. White Dove works it’s magic again and this home was sold in no time.

  • Looks like an average size kitchen right? Let me tell you there were about 100 doors/drawers- ok slight exaggeration. This kitchen really holds a lot. This White Out with the famous Dove White really brings new life to this kitchen.

  • Customer left for vacation and we worked tirelessly to get this update finished before they returned. We cut it close but everything was up and refinished when they returned. Cabinets finished in Antique white.

  • This client contacted us before they even closed on their home. They had lots of pressure from their parents not to paint the wood cabinets. She almost backed out. So glad they stuck to their guns. This kitchen turned into one of our favorite ever. When their realtors stop by a month later they were in awe. They said it was hard to believe the cabinets were ever any other finish.

  • Look a little time on my vacation and painted my mom’s kitchen in Florida. Of course I used Dove White- it is my second name at the paint store. I went back 9 months later and not a chip to be found.

  • A small refresh really made this kitchen come together as they were preparing for it to hit the market. Adding the door pulls added the polish it needed.

  • Quick update to White Dove to get this townhouse sold. Refinishing your cabinets not only has a high return on investment while raising your home value. It also tells the purchasers that you have take great care of your home.

  • Before they even moved in we were hard at work refinishing the kitchen. Used a fun new color for us Balboa Mist-Southern light is warm and cozy, but could morph a warm grey like ‘Balboa Mist’ into beige. Wish the pictures showed it’s true color better.

  • The client had us in for a quote even before the ink was dry on the bid. Once the deal was signed, seal and delivered we were back refinishing the kitchen. Love a grey island to add a fun detail to kitchens.

  • You read that right pink pinstriping- we don’t understand either. The previous customer took a little artistic license and used a fluorescent pink sharpie to pinstripe the cabinet doors. While it wasn’t the easiest to get covered we did it. Dove White on the perimeter and Plumet Grey on the island.

  • These cabinets were originally built and stained by the owner and his friend. Many years later the cabinets were screaming for a refresh… and that is what we did. We had fun working in this house as it was another clients father in law. Anyone else in the “Hacker” family need an update?

  • From the first contact from this client until we did the kitchen was about a year. But boy was it work the wait. The client added barn wood to the side panels and we white washed then with the same paint we used on the cabinets- you guessed it Dove White. Such a cute transformation.

  • The clients island was black and she wanted a more cohesive look so she called us in to refinish the perimeter cabinets in black. We were a little nervous going in thinking that the black would make the home look smaller. We do not have the original photos for this one. The mid transformation shows one coat of primer. Have to say we now LOVE the idea of black cabinets. SLEEK AND MODERN!!

  • This petite kitchen packs a punch with Dove White cabinets. Client update the back splash and counter top. They also took advantage of our Rapid Refinish making the update even more economical.

  • We finally got to work in a house with shiplap. While it was only in the pantry area it still made a statement. We also were able to give the island a little “pop” of grey. This kitchen sure packs a punch.

  • Client wanted to add a little more upscale finishes to her bathroom. We applied a Java gel stain and top coated with 3 coats of high performance. Not a week later the clients children drew on the vanity with a marker. She called me in a panic. She used a little dawn dish soap and water and it cleaned up in a minute.

  • Our customer bought this beautiful home that had been flipped by an investor. The kitchen was beautiful but so very dark. We finished the perimeter cabinets in Milkshake White and the Island was finished in Kendal Grey. Our customers reaction says it all- “I just want to move in to my kitchen.”

  • What a wonderful fresh update. Kitchen finished in Fieldstone Grey. The perfect grey with just a bit of green undertone. Nice warm grey without feeling too sterile. Client also upgrade the counter tops and backsplash by the sink.

  • Wainscoting and corbels added to the island provided for an instant upgrade. Next Tupelo Lane Designs came in and we painted the kitchen in beautiful Linen White to lighten and brighten the kitchen. Lastly the client purchased new appliances and a new counter with extended island. Why buy new cabinets when you can do all the above for 1/3 the cost.

  • The previous owner had painted the cabinets a few times. The current owner wanted dark floors so the dark cabinets would no longer work. TLD came in and added a fresh coat of paint to bring the cabinets to a beautiful white to accent the dark wood tile flooring.

  • We were so excited to play with glaze for this kitchen. The depth that glaze adds is so fun and then the black island helps to ground everything. We also did this clients laundry room and bathroom.

  • This kitchen had already had many updates – glass front doors, new counter top, new back splash but still was not exactly how the client envisioned it. The cabinets were beautiful heavy grained oak that was an upgrade when building the home. The client chose a pretty rich Cloud White to finish her cabinets in. WOW- this updated really pops in her home. We also refinished a bathroom vanity. The client is also bidding on gift certificate I donated to her charity. Hope she win’s so much fun!

  • Clients kitchen is the first thing you see when you walk in the home. They were about to put the house on the market and wanted the kitchen to make an impact. We finished the kitchen in Antique White- nice and warm welcoming color.

  • Just a few changes can make a world of difference. Our customer removed a cabinet near the window and added open shelving. Additionally, they removed the cabinet doors above the stove to add a builtin microwave. To finish off this refresh we painted the upper cabinets in White Done and finished the bottom in Kendall Grey.

  • What a fun project. Love an excuse to go into Chicago. The view of lake Michigan was a bonus for this update. Spent time with this customer working on color ideas on how to add some spice to her condo. We decided on Milkshake White for the perimeter cabinets and Midnight Blue on the island and base cabinets.

    Our clients review says it all:
    “Michele was great to work with. She approached the project like a designer, providing advice and ideas. She completed the project within the estimated time frame and exactly on budget. I couldn’t be happier with the results!”

  • I first heard from this customer before they even closed on the house. They had a plan of all the updates they wanted to do before moving in. Kitchen, bar and bath were on the list for us. Kitchen was finished in Simply White. Bar and bathroom finished in Coventry Grey. (not shown here). Love the counter and back splash they also updated. How could we forget the amazing lighting upgrade.

  • This client had attempted to paint their kitchen themselves with a kit that they purchased from a big box store. After they showed their family and they were not impressed they called Tupelo Lane Designs. After lots of sanding we finished the cabinets in Classic Grey. No more perfect light grey. Looks almost white unless you hold white to it to contrast. Perfect for someone who wants color but it afraid.

  • “When we saw our clients refinished cabinets it was hard to believe they were ever a different finish-AMAZING.”
    The perimeter cabinets were finished in Wedding Veil White and the island and desk area finished in Coventry Grey. Coventry Grey is the perfect grey with neutral undertones works with all greys, whites and beige.
