I participated in Metamorphosis Monday for the first time last week. I had so much fun reading all the comments that were left on my post, that I decided to do it again! Last week, I shared my Goodwill chairs that I painted and covered for a completely different look for our guest house. Click here if you would like to see them.
This week, I want to share with you the old cabinets from our kitchen makeover that we re-used for our guest house.
Here they are…
They used to have ugly doors on them like this…
I wanted to have a cottage feel to our guest house, so I asked my husband to make me some new doors. And this is what he made…
He used bead board for the middle and poplar wood for the trim. I wish I could show you pictures of the steps he took to make them, but he made them before I could get out to the garage to take pictures.
He used hidden hinges to attach them to the old cabinets and then painted them white.
Then he hand-made some drawers out of 1/2 inch birch plywood and bought the drawer kit (you know, the metal bar that the drawer rolls on) at Lowe’s for about $7.00 each.
Then we added the black hardware and wha-la!
Now, you may notice the beautiful tile countertop my husband installed, and you can see more pictures of it here.

Have a great Monday,
