She was unfortunately blessed with having these horrendous melamine throw-backs. The wooden 'handles' just scream of decades past, and when she was told by at least three other friends/companies that the only thing to do was spend at least $3k to replace them… I said NOT A CHANCE - let's see what I can do with this challenge.
Let's see how I got on, shall we? I took the two cupboards above the stove that you can see in the photo of the other half of her kitchen.
|Step one - smash off the wood|
|Step two - put new bottom on|
|Step three - put on the trim|
|Step four - prime them and return them! Woo Hoo! It's taken a bit longer than I hoped but I think part of that|
is down to not really knowing what would work best, or at all.
We've also discussed putting an addition on the top of the shelves to allow for some classy storage, and perhaps a wine rack or two (as they don't have one now and find it a pain). Something like this photo, we hope!
I'm glad she's on board to try this version of redoing her kitchen. I know it seems like a lot of work, but I think that it really helps now-a-days to keep as much out of the landfill as we can. I'm even going to try and find a way to reuse the handles I've torn off, but I can't quite find the inspiration just yet ;)
