DYI: Simple Blue Kitchen
This is my third "free curbside cabinet" to play kitchen makeover. Once again, I used Stone spray paint for a granite looking counter top. This time the color was "Bleached Stone." I was waiting for my free paint sample from Glidden, but alas, it hasn't arrived yet. I saw this pretty Glidden "Sea Spray" on the mis-tint shelf at Home Depot and took it home for a dollar. I have tons left and plans for it.
This time I decided to stretch myself by making a window in the oven door. I even bought two power saws! (Scary! Loud! Not as fun as a drill!) That's an old acrylic poster frame for the glass.
I also turned a rusty old baking sheet (free at the curb with this cabinet) into a magnetic chalkboard! Would you believe I used regular Pampered Chef kitchen scissors to cut the metal?!
I wrote up detailed directions for this kitchen here. You can see the others here. This kitchen will be sold on craigslist to raise money for the homeless lunch program at my church.
I hope this inspires you to think about that stuff on the curb in new ways! For more DIY inspiration head over to ASPTL and Transformation Thursday at the Shabby Chic Cottage!
