Updating kitchen cabinets with moulding
But a brighter makeover doesn't necessarily mean replacing those gloomy boxes with all-new ones.
As long as the frames and doors are structurally sound, you can clean them up and brush on a fresh coat of paint—and within a weekend take that kitchen from dreary to sunny.
Use a wood glue for wooden cabinets and trim, or a multi-purpose construction adhesive suitable for laminates or non-wood surfaces, if either the cabinet doors or the moldings are not wood.Add beadboard to the exposed sides of wall and floor cabinets to give the entire kitchen a cohesive look.Paint the cabinet doors completely, including the edges, after adding molding and trim to make the pieces look as if they were designed that way.Details such as braids, rectangular dentils or bands of olive leaves add an elegant touch to your handiwork.Adhere the narrow detail strips inside the framework, selecting pieces of similar thickness for a quality fit.
And that's news that should sure light up your day.
