Shabby Chic or Shabby Annoying?
While there are many positives to living in a home with an upgraded kitchen, getting rid of old unsightly, and creaking cabinets tops the list for many. Let’s be honest: the old worn-out kitchen cabinets may not be everyone’s cup of tea. Not only are they annoyingly hard to clean, but they also drive down the aesthetics and the value of your sweet abode. The good news is a kitchen with poor cabinets doesn’t need an entire remodel. Replacing the doors doesn’t take up a lot of your budget if you add just the right fun accents!

There’s not much a coat of paint can’t fix- (until it can’t). If you have wooden cupboards with a worn-out and lived-in look, all you need is a box of paint and a free weekend. Bring out those supplies from your garage and start painting. Prime those big bad boys up, then select from a wide variety of paint types from high-gloss to chalk paint or rustic.
Replace the Front Doors
Now, there’s a fine line between being truly beat up or simply worn out beautifully over time. If your cabinets belong to the former category, a paint job may not be able to salvage them.
