I even found a trio at the thrift store for a great price!But once my husband helped me hang them on the wall, the shelves made the room look cluttered. All the ceramic pitchers I've been collecting over the last few years to display on said shelves are now being stored in the cabinets. *A huge thank-you to Beth @ Home Stories A2Z, Kristin @ My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia, Stephanie Lynn @ Under the Table and Dreaming, Home Dzine and Kristi @ Addicted to Decorating for featuring my kitchen on their blogs!Since you might be painting the kitchen, consider refreshing your cabinets with molding if you go with a country theme.
Then we can replace the door, window and base molds. And once we do that, then we going to Bondo up where the old hinges was, because there’s going to be some new hinges in place. You know, that’s a good point, because, you know, when you look at that, you can see that there is an indentation from all of the years. You actually have a very, very slight little area there that you’re going to have to fill in, and Bondo or the automobile body filler. Steve Steele: Yeah, we’ll take an prime it, and that way we can see if there’s anything else in here that needs to be Bondoed. Steve Steele: Because the primer will let you know what’s going on. This is the secret weapon to making your countertops look great. Jodi Marks: See, now, if you can’t afford granite, that doesn’t mean you can’t get the look of granite with this kit.Like all materials, melamine is not resistant to the test of time, and eventually it shows signs of decay.If your melamine kitchen’s color is fading and its cabinets start to look as if they have been through one too many battle, do not go shopping for a new kitchen just yet.The lighting was pretty basic and not very functional for a work space. So, we thought that the boxes themselves were pretty good. And being able to buy the doors, have them shop painted, and then us painting the boxes out here, it’s going to look like a new cabinet. David Harris: And Lori wanted concealed hinges, too. The templates for the new granite countertops have been made, so the stone can be cut.The vinyl floor that dominated these homes was functional but not very attractive. And the cabinets have been updated with a fresh coat of paint and brand new doors.As you may or may not recall, we had some water damage in our kitchen caused by our dishwasher. We found a great deal on flooring and were able to update our cabinets with moulding. ; ) The curtains were actually made from a sheet set.Unfortunately, with our high deductible and a lot of insurance mumbo jumbo, we weren't left with a lot of money for repairs. The process was long, but worthwhile and I'm excited to show you the updates that were made! As I mentioned before, they were my least favorite thing in the house. Then clicked my way over to Lisa's blog, A Vintage Vine for all the details. I used the pillowcases for window treatments in my laundry room as seen here.By adding some stylish hardware, it can elevate and change the style of your kitchen completely.Go for sleek stainless steel tube handles for a contemporary and modern update, or scout for some vintage finds at flea markets or yard sales to create a hip and trendy effect.Disassemble all cabinet doors to work more efficiently, and clean them to remove grease.Coat all surfaces with a primer before applying any paint.
