What are your great money-saving makeover ideas? We’d love to hear about them.

    Great idea! Cost savers sometimes don't look too hot – but this looks great! Good job.

    It is very difficult to achieve metallic finishes on wood. This one was very well done.

    I'm interested in what the cost was and for how many cabinets? I assume just door fronts only were painted. Did you just take them to any auto detailing shop?

    Great little kitchen. Fantastic idea and the finish is fabulous!
