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.

    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!
