Luckily, the cupboards in the kitchen were original to the house-
which meant we had that character to work with.
These old cupboards are built right in to the walls
I promised to share some of what we did to renovate the kitchen.
and so am starting with the open display cupboards.
The cupboards were already a beautiful white painted enamel
It had such charm and even though it was unfinished pine inside
I just removed the end door on the other side as well for symmetry.
and added simple 1×2 trim to finish off the inside area.
and then painted everything inside a creamy white.
something at the top to finish them off.
I found a platter that had the right length, traced the arch of it onto a 1×6 pine board
and cut it out with a jigsaw. Because our nail gun wasn’t working at the time- I used caulk to secure
them until it was unjammed and working again and it actually did a great job in
case you are ever in need of a quick fix.
