Day 2 was all about the hinges. Since this kitchen cabinet project is all on a strict budget, I had to figure out how to deal with what I have so I can save money for the things I really want (like new cabinet knobs). So these hinges will have to be doctored up.
The cabinet hardware has been in this house since it was built in ’98 so I knew they were going to need a good cleaning before I started experimenting on their facelift.
Hours later they are the cleanest, ugliest hingest around.
Laid out to dry.
Now on to my doctoring. I really have no idea if this will work but like I said I have to try to save money.
Spray second. Going for a silvery nickel finish.
Ahhh.. much better! That will save me about $150 – $200.
