Brightening up Dark Cupboards

When I opened our kitchen cupboards for the first time, I was discouraged at how dark and dismal they were.  I knew something had to change.

I bought two rolls of contact paper. They matched the curtains that I had hung in the kitchen.  Perfect!!!


I started to empty out kitchen cupboards  and apply sheets of the contact paper. An amazing transformation occurred… for only a few dollars.


Dark scratched kitchen cupboard became….

A smooth pretty surface.



I realized something half way through the process of cutting, measuring and smoothing out the contact paper…. “I have a lot of cupboards and drawers. Yikes!!”.   While everything was out, I decluttered and re-organized. A few things needed polished up or cleaned.

I was lucky to have a small amount of paper left and was able to cover the shelves in my dining room hutch.  Will share that in a future post.

An afternoons worth of work, made a huge difference in how my kitchen feels.  It gave me the motivation I needed to start more re-decorating and organization projects in my kitchen.  Check back for more transformations.
