Paint Cabinets, Not Replace

With all of the products and techniques out there today, cabinets can look completely different just by painting them.

Painted Walls

A fresh coat of paint does wonders. If you want something more, why not try a painted design like stripes? You could even add some molding for even more depth.

Online Savings

A lot of times you can find great deals online. I recently saw a post on Craigslist where someone was remodeling their kitchen and selling their (barely used) cabinets CHEAP! You just never know!

Surplus Finds

Have you ever heard of the Habitat for Humanity stores? They sell the unused materials for a bargain. Check online for a store near you or any other discount store in your area.

Give Retro a Try

So many “vintage” things can be found at flea markets and antique stores. Why not re-purpose them into something with charm and function. The results can be amazing!

Do Most of the Work Yourself

You might get a little dirty but you can save a bundle. With all of the how-to videos online now, you can do virtually anything yourself now. Why not give it a try?

Hardware and Fixtures

It’s amazing what switching out the fixtures and hardware can do. Just changing out the hinges and handles on your cabinets can give your kitchen/bath a whole new look!

Piece by Piece

If you cannot afford to do it now, buy one piece at a time. Look for sales and discounts and buy then. Before you know it, you will have all of the things you need to do your room and the cost wont be as noticeable.

Redo What You Have

Have you looked to see whats under that linoleum? Maybe it’s hard wood. Counters in good shape? Why not try refinishing them? You could try tile or faux granite. Whatever is in good shape can be re-purposed into something wonderful with a little imagination and elbow grease.

Whatever it is you decide to do it will make a difference. Take notice of things you like online or at a friends house and think of ways to recreate it cheaply. You’ll be amazed at what you can do when you put your mind to it!
