“What can I do to upgrade my kitchen on a budget?” I get this question a lot. Everyone wants to have their dream kitchen. But, not everyone can afford the cost and/or the time that it takes for a remodel. Typically, getting a new look is as simple as a new backsplash and some fresh paint. But, if you are looking for more of a customized look, you may want to consider adding stacked cabinets. So, let’s go over how to install stacked cabinets and when it is a good solution.
I truly believe that base cabinets were placed on earth as some cosmic joke. Well, maybe it’s not that extreme, but it certainly is aggravating to try to store things in them. You either end up with everything right at the front and a ton of wasted space in the back, or you have to take everything out anytime that you need something. Adding drawers is the solution, but so many people tell me that while they love DIYing, they just don’t have the skills or tools to do something so drastic. However, there is an easy way to add pull-out drawers to bottom cabinets, and I am going to show you exactly how!
I finally have gotten around to organizing my junk drawer. It was really in need of some love, but I have been putting it off for awhile now, trying to focus on other more pressing projects. I have justified my procrastination by telling myself that it is just a junk drawer and by definition should not be organized. I mean, it’s right there in the title, “junk!” But, that line of thinking can only satisfy my obsessive need for order for so long. It would appear that the time was finally up. Luckily, I found these AMAAAAZING, easy DIY custom drawer dividers from Rockler.*
Have you ever looked at your cabinets and noticed that the doors just aren’t aligned straight with each other. It may seem like a minor issue, but unaligned doors can detract from even the most beautiful cabinets. That’s why it is always a good idea to know how to align cabinet doors. Trust me! Eventually you will need to do this.
