I’ve been wanting to redo the kitchen for a while. We’ve got started on one side, with the kitchen table, but now we’ve got the cabinets to spruce up. Our goal is to spend as little as possible to spiff up our house here and there.
Having already done the sanding, priming, painting business on our bathroom cabinets, I thought I might try the the Rustoleum Cabinet Transformations kit that I’ve been seeing around the interwebs. Essentially it claims to be an easier way to change up the look of your cabinets. After seeing a couple trusted blogger friends try it out, I think we’re ready to take the plunge. The before and afters on their website were pretty convincing, too.
So I hit up the Photoshop and made a little magic to try to decide whether we should go dark or light.
For now, we’re keeping the counters even though they are no bueno. I had thought light cabinets would be my top choice, but after seeing the edited photo, I wasn’t so sure. We have a galley kitchen, and I still think that going dark might make it seem smaller, but since there are two windows in there, I think it will be OK.
The kit is about $250, but we have some Home Depot gift cards so it will be free for us! We’re waiting for a free weekend/week to put this kit to the test, but we are excited to have a semi-updated kitchen on the cheap.
Have you made any upgrades to your kitchen?
