DIY Painted Kitchen Cabinets
Updating what is there
We updated our existing cabinets for under $500 to add property value and enjoy our home more!
Label your Cabinets
Cabinets need to go back in the same spot. Label all cabinets and drawer fronts with painters tape ( I show a trick on where to hide the tape while painting!)
Not a step to skimp on. I give you all the proper sand paper to buy and the steps to follow!
Now give all of your cabinets and drawer fronts 2 coats of primer. 2 coats saves money and time!
Now paint with 2 coats of paint. I used cabinet paint that made things simple and gave a hard finish!
Optional - add details to island
We added some detailing to our island while we were painting that made a HUGE difference for very little effort!
Lighting and Hardware
The last step for us was to add new lighting and hardware - we found ours from Amazon!
This was our most impactful DIY update in our home
