One of the biggest makeover jobs that a person will probably ever undertake in their home, is in the kitchen. And… one of the most expensive items to tackle are the cabinets. Typically, you have the choice of tearing out the old and bringing in new or going the more frugal route of updating what you have.
Luckily, there is a lot you can do with paint. Picking out the right color, finish and/or glaze affect will leave you feeling like you have a brand new kitchen!
