If you are pleased with the basic layout and function of your kitchen but want to update the look and add a few new features, then read on. We will show you how paint, new cabinet doors and drawer fronts, moldings and a few accessories can transform your kitchen.
We are going to show you five projects that create more storage space and make existing cabinet space more accessible. Each project is constructed using readily available lumber, plywood, hardware, L moldings, glue and screws.
If you have empty space above your kitchen cabinets, you already know how difficult it is to keep it clean and the surface is not flat for displaying items. Here is an attractive display shelf you can easily build in a day. This project only requires basic carpentry tools and skills.
We recommend this alteration only for frame-and-panel cabinet doors, where you can replace the inset wood panels with glass. Converting the two doors shown here took about two hours.
