Note that stained wood and glossy finishes have to first be de-glossed; I use a liquid sander, Wil-Bond, that’s applied with a rag.

Above: Abbey and Phil Hendrickson transformed their kitchen by painting the cabinets in Forest Canopy, a deep, deep green Valspar Paint, and a white from Home Depot (specifics since forgotten).

To embrace our kitchen until we’re ready to remodel, I made a few simple changes.

Our kitchen is like so many – it’s filled with 80’s oak cabinets, okay, veneer cabinets and soffits, which make the room appear smaller.

If your kitchen is looking a bit tired, you don’t have to spend a fortune to give it a fresh new look.

All it takes is a little time, effort and creativity to pep up the heart of your home.

If your cupboards are a bit dated, in terms of style and or colour, why not consider just replacing the doors if the framework is still in good shape?

There are a host of companies that specialise in providing replacement doors.

Unfinished, painted, and stained wood all work well, as does MDF, compressed/faux wood.

The wood grain can manifest itself in two ways: through the texture of the wood and also the grain bleeding through the paint.

Check out this post on ways to minimize the grain when painting oak cabinets.

Oak can have a similar result, it just takes a little more effort to get there.

Paint in general is easiest and least expensive way to transform a kitchen.
