Updating pine kitchen cabinets
Avoid these blunders to end up with cabinets you can't wait to show off: Painted cabinets look lovely, but they aren't going to look totally smooth.
"If the cabinets have a visible open grain, the grooves are going to show through the paint," warns Don Fahrbach, president of professional painting company PNP Craftsmen in New York City.
All of it goes against the traditional oak cabinets, and it somehow all works. Changing outdated lighting is a quick way to update your kitchen.
Here’s one that’s similar to the pendants in the above photo: Are you living with oak cabinets?
I originally was going to paint the hutch a sisal color and the walls white, but that felt too cold to me so I reversed the colors and could not be happier.
For this makeover, I removed and replaced all the hinges and handles, cleaned and refinished the doors, and cut and painted grooves in the faces.
The plain-looking kitchen was reborn with a more stylish Craftsman appearance.
