Kitchen Cabinet Makeover for Less Than $250


When I bought my house the kitchen was my least favorite room. The cabinets were an orange oak wood (so gross).... For a quick fix I just added some roped crown molding, new appliances and hardwood flooring. I couldn't stand the wood cabinets anymore. I also couldn't stand that the cabinets didn't go up to the ceiling.
I built the cabinets up to the ceiling using some 1 x 6's and molding. Using some left over wood, I attached blocks to the top of the cabinets, then attached the 1 x 6 pieces of wood to the blocks, then attached thin molding where the new wood and cabinets meet and installed crown molding. I also made a refrigerator surround! Painted the cabinets in a greige color, added new hardware and hinges! I still have to add a marble subway tile back splash and install a new counters most likely in marble or quartz but I LOVE how the kitchen looks now! What a difference for such a small amount of money. I spent roughly $230.00 on the cabinet makeover!
