Updating kitchen cabinets using decorative molding
This post is for anyone who hates their kitchen cabinets and is thinking of doing a DIY Kitchen Makeover and transforming the cabinets with paint.
If you won’t be painting over the doors completely, remember to stain or paint the trim to match before attaching it to the cabinets.Cut the molding at 45-degree angles for the corners if using angled moldings; flat moldings may be cut at 45- or 90-degree angles, with each piece butting up against its neighbors around the face of the door.Whether you've chosen angled, mitered moldings or a basic, flat frame for the door fronts, upgrade them with detailed moldings.If you love to DIY, chances are…you love to save money. Instead of ripping out the old and buying new ones, why not update the ones you have?For the next several weeks, I will be sharing with you ways to update things without replacing or spending a fortune. Whether you add trim to the doors or paint your cabinets, you can get a great look without spending a lot of money.
Make sure that every item, right down to the screws, is checked off, because waiting for a second delivery can hold up the entire installation process.
