Kitchen Cabinets Step 2! (Finally!)

Well, almost a year after putting the cabinet box in place, I have at last added shelves, paint, and trim. Now I only have the doors to go and the rest of the cabinets to build!

This is the cabinet shell with shelves and primed

I had a horrible time picking a color. I really wanted yellow, but not too bright and not too dark

I painted the insides, then added the front trim and patched and primed

For referance, this is the shell as it stayed for nearly a year

And this is the cabinet with everything but doors, lol! (I still have to learn to use my router and make those)

    Wow. You’re self taught? Amazing job!

    • Basically. I grew up with tools and wood since my Dad always let us play with scraps. He also built the addition on our home and was always making something for my mom or us kids. He loved when we would help him, and taught us if we used our heads we could make just about anything. I must have a really hard head, lol!

    They look so pretty! I love open shelving, myself. I wouldn’t even bother with doors. But that may be an excuse for not going though all that hard work….

    • I like the open shelves as well, but I want to eventually get checked to sell baked goods from my home, and I have to have sealed cabinets with doors, plus our house is very dusty and we get a lot of mice, so a good, closed cabinet is a must. I must admit, they are looking really pretty with my flour tins and glass dishes right now, and I hate to close them up.
