Before & After: Defeat Dark Colors with Glidden Complete


Do you have dark walls, dated woodwork or cabinets you’d like to freshen up? Well, a fresh coat of paint might be all you need. If you’re concerned that paint alone won’t give you the desired result for your space, check out the before and after (below) for how the new Glidden Complete Paint + Primer transformed this dated corner of my kitchen.

We moved into a 1950s home last year, and while we dreamed about a full kitchen remodel, it wasn’t in our budget right away. Paint is a budget-friendly option to improve any space. Let me put your mind at ease, Glidden Complete can effectively transform even your darker walls, woodwork and cabinets to give your entire room a brand new look.
