Creating upper cabinets is my current project. I fell in love with the look of upper cabinets and wanted to try and recreate the look in my own kitchen. The keyword here is TRY, as this is a total DIY project done by me, mostly.
Upper cabinets will provide me with some much needed storage space for rarely used pieces. I really love the built in microwave too.
What’s not to love about this gorge kitchen? From the planked ceiling and beautiful floor to the chandelier and those swoon worthy cabinets, it’s yummy! Silvery tones, soft blues and white sure do complement each other beautifully.
Even though these upper cabinets don’t have glass doors, I still love this look, especially in this very rich looking kitchen. But, eek, there’s no room for fake vines!
I would never have attempted a project like this without my handy nail gun from Lowe’s. It makes a project so much easier! This model From Campbell Hausfeld is very affordable.
Here we go…
Here’s the first cabinet I put together. It’s not quite square but Bill said that’s an easy fix.
My second attempt was much better. This cabinet was square.
Getting there! Just keepin it real so excuse the mess.
A lot of wood filler and sanding and they will be good, I think.
We had to get a new fridge, she’s a beauty!
On this side of the room, I’d like to add molding and try to create a custom built in look.
Something like this but with different pantry doors and the look of a built in microwave. Can you see my vision?
For beautiful kitchen inspirations check out my Pinterest board.
I’ll be working on this all week and then start to think about how to put together the doors. That’s the scary part. If I can’t figure it out I might have them made.
Can you recommend a good creamy white for kitchen cabinets? I’ll be looking for paint soon.
So that’s my latest project, but I move so slowly doing stuff like this and the weather getting so hot and humid might slow me down even more. The chairs for the family room are ready to be picked up from the slipcover angel and that room is ready for accessories! Finally. We added some new pieces to the patio so come back on Wednesday for that.
Thanks for visiting! Debbie (((xx)))
