DIY Cabinet Makeover For Kitchen

Happy Wednesday!! I’ve been cleaning and organizing like crazy this week and I seriously feel like I’ve gotten nowhere. It could be because of the multiple projects I have going on. I don’t know why I can’t just stay focused on one thing at a time. I start one project and then move on to another before finishing the first one. Please tell me I’m not the only one who does this. It’s definitely something I need to work on. I did, however, finish a little project in my kitchen. This little space has seen many different changes since I took the upper cabinets down. But I think I’ve finally found something that feels like it belongs. I made this little cabinet quite a while ago and decided to give it a little facelift for this space. Here it is before.

I had originally made it to set this cute little cubby cabinet on. But I ended up moving the cubby and the DIY cabinet got put in an unused room. Until now. I decided I wanted to paint it white to go in my kitchen but then I realized I didn’t really want the drawers in it. So after somewhat disassembling it, rebuilding the shelf part of it and painting it white I think it goes perfectly in this space.

I know this may seem like an odd choice for a countertop, but when it comes to decorating my house I like to think outside of the box. Do I get negative comments about my design choices? Absolutely! Do I let that stop me from doing it anyway? Heck no! Just like when I removed our upper cabinets. People told me I would seriously regret taking them down and adding open shelving. And guess what? I have no regrets at all. I love the shelving in my kitchen. And I love this little cubby cabinet in this space.

I may need to hit the thrift store though for more white dishes. I love decorating my shelves and hutch with dishes and the thrift store is literally the best place to find them. The last time I went shopping for dishes (pre Covid) I got 20 + pieces for under $25.00. Say what? That is such an awesome deal and a really good way to decorate empty spaces in your kitchen.

This little cabinet is most definitely not perfect but neither is my house so it’s all good. I’m totally ok with perfectly imperfect. Now, onto the next project. Let’s see if I can get our downstairs bathroom done before another project pops up. LOL!

Hope y’all enjoy the rest of your week. And as always, thank you so much for stopping by the blog today.
