Having a farmhouse style kitchen is a dream for many homeowners that love to decorate with a country feel. If you are someone that wants their kitchen to look as if someone walked right into a country farmhouse, the first thing you need to do is makeover the cabinets in your kitchen. The cabinets are the first thing people see when they walk into the room, and updating them takes a very short period. Use the following guide to learn how to give your kitchen cabinets a country facelift quickly and easily.
Remove the Cabinet Doors
Use a screwdriver to remove the cabinet doors by turning the screws counterclockwise. Be careful when removing the screws, because you do not want to accidentally lose one. You will be using them to hang the doors back up later.
Add Painter's Tape to the Edges
Use painter's tape around the edges of the cabinet frame. Be sure that you tape off any area that touches a wall and any area that touches the backsplash in your kitchen.
Paint the Cabinet Frames
Use a bright farmhouse red color to paint the cabinet frames. Be sure that you take the time to cut into the edges of the cabinets with a small paintbrush so that you can get as close to the walls as possible without actually getting paint on them.
Transform the Cabinet Doors
Use a miter saw to cut out the center portion of the cabinet doors so that you are only left with a frame. Paint the new frame you created with the red paint and allow it to dry for a few hours. Use wire cutters to cut chicken wire to fit onto the back of the cabinet door frame. Use a staple gun to attach chicken wire to the backside of the door. Repeat the process with all of the other doors.
Finish the Job
Add polyurethane gel to all of the cabinet doors and the cabinet frame. This will protect the paint from being damaged. Replace all of the cabinet doors onto the cabinet frame by turning the screws clockwise with the screwdriver.
With the chicken wire on the doors, you will be able to see what is stored inside of the kitchen cabinets with ease. Knowing that people are going to see inside of your cabinets may help you to get them better organized and will create the look of a country pie safe at the same time.
