Let me take you on a little pictorial journey of how we upgraded our cabinet doors, and put new hardware on them for free...
|Our kitchen Before (kind of)|
Then a few weeks ago, I decided it was time to buckle down and get this project finished. So I brought them back upstairs and got to work on their cosmetic surgery. The doors used to have a design carved into them that wasn't offensive in any way, but wasn't done with the highest quality craftsmanship either (you can see it in the photo above). So I filled them in with joint compound (it took 4 coats), sanded them down, re-primed them, and painted them in the same color we used 3 years ago to paint the cabinet frames. Save your paint, folks. It comes in wicked handy later on for procrastinator projects.
To get our cabinet door hardware for free, we poached them from another renovation project we're currently working on in our bedroom.
