Your kitchen should be a place of joy and comfort since it is the heart of the household. Many people don’t have a lot of money to invest into a new kitchen now due to economy that we are in. I have a house that was built in 1964 with the flat paneled cabinet doors and hinges that came halfway across the door.
Transforming this kitchen was much cheaper and was a lot easier than what I thought it would be. First thing I did was think about what I wanted to achieve in this kitchen, I wanted a bright space that my family would enjoy. I didn’t want to put in a new kitchen because I didn’t want to spend the money for my dream kitchen.
I took all the doors off the cabinets and removed the soffits about the top kitchen cabinets, removing the soffits and the large black hinges made a big difference in updating the room. I took a palm sander and I sanded the front of the doors and the back of the doors, I also sanded the inside of the cabinets then used mineral spirits to clean the cabinets. Next part in the process was installing crown moulding along the top of upper cabinets, I then took bead board and applied it to sides of the kitchen cabinets and added other thin moulding on cabinets where there was imperfections.
