DIY Cabinet Makeover

While we were renovating our kitchen, I kept looking at this cabinet and wondering if we should throw it out or not.Β  It was really useful in the kitchen, and I didn’t want to go and spend money on something else that would do the same thing as something we already had. Classic Money vs. Time πŸ™‚

As you can see from the pictures, time won the battle, and I decided to give it some new life.

I am very happy with outcome, especially since we had the primer, the paint, the tiles and everything for the painted countertop. All we had to buy were the hinges and handles, which we got at a super bargain of $1.00 each (Thanks to Franks Home Hardware!!)

    1. I did a lot of research on painting countertops and decided that the kits were too expensive. So I just used good primer, latex colour and a MILLION coats of varathane. It is holding up really, really well and would be easy to touchup when needed πŸ™‚

    1. It really is worth the time. My bathroom cabinets are next….actually my entire bathroom is next. It is the worst room in the house, so I guess we are saving the best for last!
      Did you take any before and after pictures of your bathroom cabinets?
