Kitchen Cabinets: Re-Paint Instead of Replace!
Those old cabinets in your kitchen, at one time they looked great, and were in style, but really need an update now... Usually people put off this project, because the cost of replacing your kitchen cabinets can be astronomical!
But there is another solution - repaint everything instead! With a fresh coat of paint, and some new hardware, those "old" cabinets, can look brand spanking new! And cost wise, this comes in far lower than replacing everything. And if you also repaint the kitchen itself, Voila! A dramatic change!
While you are at it, the interiors of the cabinets can be reconfigured as well:
- new shelving systems
- spice racks
- shelf liners
- Lazy Susans
Sometimes, all it takes is a little imagination, and a fresh coat of paint, and that kitchen will look great again!

Back-to-School Painting Projects For Your Home
It's that time of year again, summer is already winding down, and it is time to get the kids ready for school here in the Grand Rapids area. One project to tackle every year, is getting the kids rooms ready for the new grade or school they may be attending. As they get older, their tastes and needs change. For younger children, a fresh coat of paint in a bright color can create a fun environment for them to be in, and get into the "school habits". For middle school students, changing the pastel pink or blue from their childhood bedroom walls to bolder colors is a common request. For high school and college students, the bedroom becomes a personal retreat where they can express themselves and feel more like adults.
But now is the time to get started. We can help guide you through some of the considerations:
- Establishing a good space for study. The right configuration of the room is key here!
- Inspire their creativity - the right colors make a difference!
- And make it age appropriate! They don't stay little forever!
