When we first moved into our home Sarah and I only had a small high top style table that we had moved over from our apartment. Now that we have a bit more space to work with we thought it might look better to have a more traditional dinner table that would also help fill the space out a bit more. Not to mention we had plans of using the old high top in our basement for a later project. The only problem is that (and I’m sure many of you can relate) - there were a TON of other projects that were a higher priority on our list. We didn’t want to spend an arm and a leg on a new table and since we had a few projects in the works in the garage we decided to refurbish an old table that we had found at a local consignment shop. It was quite dated looking with yellow oak and off white legs, but was still in good condition.
Having new cabinetry installed is certainly an expensive undertaking most of the time. But sometimes all those old cabinets need is a change of hardware and a fresh coat of paint to bring them back to life. Many wood, laminate or even metal cabinets are great candidates for a coat of paint if prepped correctly.
