Ryan, those pesky, dated kitchen cabinets can simply ruin an otherwise great house.

Adding the trim to the doors covered up the old holes for the knobs, but I wanted to change their location anyways. But then immediately after I painted them, the numbers were not just visible, but raised.

On the very last warm-ish day of the year, I laid out all the drawers and doors and got my painting on with my paint sprayer. I had them all primed with Zinsser oil based primer within 15 minutes.

Then I waited a couple of hours before painting the final coats.

I thought about using the leftover subway tile from the shower surround to add a backsplash (which I would ).

However, the current little backsplash is integrated into the laminate countertop, which means that it can’t be removed without removing the entire countertop, and it’s my personal pet peeve to have a backsplash that doesn’t go the whole way down to the countertop. ) We’re not able to replace the countertop, so that means no backsplash either!

We cleaned them up and caulked around the outside edges of the trim for a seamless transition. We used Kilz primer, which is so rough that it needed to be sanded lightly afterwards, but it seemed to provide a really strong base coat.

Look at my busy worker bees 🙂 This was about as far as we got with my family, but we had made HUGE progress and I was ecstatic!

Adding trim to cabinet doors has obviously been done before.

One day I was waiting at the paint counter at Lowe’s, there was a bucket of yardsticks, and I was thinking that I should buy wood trim that size because it’s exactly the look I had in mind – flat, shaker style, and the width of the boards were still small enough for the tiny drawers.

The room was already looking worlds better, thanks to projects like the fresh white paint, wood floors, painting a bright red door, and raising the old header over the sink and adding a new pendant light & rugs.

But I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the dated 50’s cabinetry.

(Spoiler: nnnnnoootttt.) My sisters & I were outside tackling the cabinet doors.
