Kitchen RedoFebruary 4th, 2009 in member junk
I'm still in the process of redoing my kitchen...I couldn't afford to gut the cabinets, so I decided to paint and add wallpaper to the doors. Yes, this is wallpaper that is textured and made to look like beadboard. I think its turning out pretty good...
The center island has my stove top on it, I'm still waiting for the $$ to get granite, my husband made the free-standing island from old legs and pine shelving, we bought the butcher block top from IKEA for around $90. it comes in different lengths and we needed the 96 inch top and it just fit!
The trim was already on my cabinet doors, I just added the wallpaper in the insets, painted and glazed. I've had this on my island for 2years now, and it's held up very well. of course its okay if it gets a little more distressed as time goes on! I seal everything with 2-3 coats of an polycrylic sealant.
I'm not sure how well it would do on your doors, I also had considered that myself. You can buy this kid of wallpaper on-line from Gramham and Brown or at Lowe's, it cost about $35 to 40 a double roll.
