Budget Cabinet Makeover!!!December 14th, 2011 in member junk
This is a little sampling of our kitchen makeover. When we bought this house, the cabinets were the original stain with a gross coating of grease and dust. I cleaned them as much as I could but they still looked icky so I decided to paint them. Since I love black cabinets, that's what we went with but I soon realized that black cabinets are meant for really big kitchens. Our kitchen is a good size but the black cabinets still make it feel dark and cramped.
Oh what a can of paint and a lot of work can do. We replaced the cheap looking 2 inch molding with crown molding that I bought at the Habitat for Humanity Restore for 75 cents per foot. My husband cut the center out of these cabinet doors and replaced it with plexiglass I bought at Hobby Lobby with my 40% off coupon. I painted the hinges with satin nickel spray paint to match the handles and there ya go. "New" cabinets!!!
The rest of the reveal is on the way. I'm still making curtains so hopefully, this weekend this project will be complete.
