Updating kitchen cabinets with crown molding
Painting cabinets yourself is cost-effective -- a few gallons of paint, sandpaper, cleaner -- but the process is time-intensive.
Crown molding adds a touch of class to the tops of tired cabinets for less than you’d expect.
As can happen with extensive home renovations, other areas of the house had demanded fuller attention, and the good intentions to finish up the remaining projects, such as addition of crown molding, often got pushed aside.
There were some corrective bits that required the experts at Home Depot to come and finish as well, the delay in their being able to come had factored into the further delay of the finishing touches to the kitchen.
When Mary and her husband relocated from the “mitten” of Michigan to Durham North Carolina, they found their dream house in the form of an older (1939 to be exact) fixer-upper that had sat unoccupied for ten years prior to their purchase.
The house had a great deal of promise, and fortunately Mary and her husband, in spite of being in their 20s had plenty of prior DIY/remodeling experience, having renovated their previous home in Michigan extensively.
