Our kitchen was outdated, dirty and just plain gross when we moved in. I love using what I already have and giving new life to it…also that saves on money. I’ve always wanted white shaker cabinets but knew I definitely couldn’t afford brand new ones. So we decided to get creative!
I first cleaned the all years of grime off. This house was built in the sixties and these are the original cabinets. Old and ugly but still in great condition. After cleaning we took off the doors and pulled out the drawers so we could add trim to them.
After my awesome hubby cut and attached all the trim I got to painting! I first primed everything…let dry 24 hours and did two coats of semi gloss bright white paint. Allowing 24 hours after every coat. Took awhile, but I was getting so excited to see everything come together!
We added new hardware to the cupboard doors and drawers. I love how the black pops. Next was getting rid of that ugly counter top!!!
We wanted butcher block but again it would have been more than we wanted to spend. We decided to make our own. I love the look of wood!!
I absolutely love my sink. Got a great deal on it from Amazon. Same with the faucet.
This house didn’t come with a dishwasher….so that wasn’t going to work. My hubby made it happen though! We took out part of the bottom cupboard and it was the perfect place for a new dishwasher! Yay!!!
