Kitchen Cabinets DIY

If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint', then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced. ~Vincent van Gogh

Create a lighter and brighter kitchen by painting dated kitchen cabinets.  It's the quickest and most economical way to give your kitchen a total makeover that you will be able to enjoy.

Today I am showcasing my friend Andrew's DIY.  He did this on a strict budget, and as you'll see, putting in a little sweat and painting can take your living space from drab to fab!    

Kitchen Before

Kitchen After

This kitchen is not even close to being noticeably the same kitchen.  As for the painted cabinets, the proof is in the pudding, my fellow DIY'ers.  This project was completed in the summer so they were able to paint outside. A roller sponge was used to give a smooth finish along with melamine paint.

Here is the loveable Mr. Digby showing his new kitchen floor...

What did it take to transform this kitchen? Paint and new tile floor.  Flooring was purchased at Kent's for $2.75 per square foot. 

Onto the dining room...

Plates are meant to be eaten off, or are they? The famous plate hanging scene (as once seen in my grandmother's kitchen) can actually be carried out quite elegantly. At the end of my post I'll show you some examples.
