Updating kitchen cabinets using decorative molding
We figured out that you should cut multiples at once to save time & ensure perfectly even cuts.I didn’t bother with mitered corners because I knew you wouldn’t be able to tell after they were sanded, primed, and painted.
But once my husband helped me hang them on the wall, the shelves made the room look cluttered. All the ceramic pitchers I've been collecting over the last few years to display on said shelves are now being stored in the cabinets. *A huge thank-you to Beth @ Home Stories A2Z, Kristin @ My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia, Stephanie Lynn @ Under the Table and Dreaming, Home Dzine and Kristi @ Addicted to Decorating for featuring my kitchen on their blogs!(Spoiler: nnnnnoootttt.) My sisters & I were outside tackling the cabinet doors.Alyssa sanded all the doors with an orbital sander, & Megan & I worked on adding the “trim” yardstick detail to the fronts.Painting is the obvious answer for dated cabinets, but I was worried that the plain, flat-front doors might still look cheap & bland, even with a fresh coat of paint.I thought that adding simple trim to the fronts would really dress them up and make them look more expensive than they are.
