DIY Easy Kitchen Makeover
Why tear out your kitchen when you can give your cabinets a facelift?
October 7, 2011
Forget stainless steel refrigerators, granite countertops or fancy
interior decorating. When it comes to putting a face on a cabin’s
kitchen, the cabinets are front and center. And unattractive cabinets
can throw an entire cabin’s décor off balance.

When Jean and
Frank Russ purchased their log cabin on Minnesota’s St. Louis River,
they wasted little time updating and revamping their idyllic home,
inside and out. While the kitchen cabinets were definitely on the to-do
list, the considerable time and expense of a replacement just didn’t
mesh with their plans at the time.
Instead of buying new
cabinets, the couple opted for a facelift, changing out the old cabinet
doors with custom-built replacements. With the addition of some painting
and sanding, they were able to transform their kitchen at less than
half the cost of a full-scale replacement.
