Recently I did my first tile job by myself on my kitchen cabinet. I have been collecting tile off of Craig's list and i finally decided to recover the counters. here is the before and
after shots. The prep work is sanding the surfaces to make the mastic stick. Lay out your pattern first and cut all tile and re fit to where they will be placed on the cabinet. Set the tile with mastic let dry for a few days. Continue by putting the grout in the cracks.Let stand for 20 minutes and wipe with a sponge,then with a soft towel to remove all the residue. After 48 hours seal with sealer. I still need to finish the wall behind the stove with tile.

Today I am sharing with you how I updated my so so china cabinet into a more stylish entertaining hutch. Ok so it was always a hutch, I just made the room so much more appealing by adding
the woven basket textures to a rather plain piece of furniture. This cabinet really did not have much of a style to it, but it is a really nice piece of furniture. I just didn't love it. It seemed no matter how I displayed the dishes and glasses inside they got lost in the mirrored background. My husband absolutely forbid me to paint it and believe me I thought about doing it anyway while he was a work! I am glad I listened to him and came up with another way to solve this design dilemma. This is an easy transformation and the cabinet is now the focal point of the room. This was such a simple way to update a piece of furniture without paint.
I recently painted my kitchen cabinets, and wanted to give the dishwasher a built-in look. We used beadboard and 1 x 4s to create a look that matches our cabinets. The top is hinged to allow access to the dishwasher controls.
