|A great place to hand book bags, store laundry baskets, and shoes .|
The next project was updating the cabinets. We inherited them in this condition when we bought the house and while they are very large, sturdy ,and offer lots of storage space... they are UGLY and OUTDATED.
|Old outdated cabinets that need a budget update.|
I have been thinking about how I wanted to update this area of the laundry room for awhile. I wanted to get rid of the hinges and install hidden hinges. After trying a dozen different hinge types, I realized this was not an option unless we built new doors. ( think thrifty) So, I decided to work with what I had and use the existing hinges. But the doors were made of thin plywood. So , off the the hardware store to find some inexpensive moulding to "dress up " these doors.
|I brought home moulding samples to see what would work on the cabinets.|
|The cabinets look great after the moulding is installed. I love it.|
|I love the look of the updated cabinets.|
Gradually we are updating the room. The next project in the room ? The sink area. I have collected an under-mount sink that I bought 2 years ago as a display for 20.00 and a faucet at a yard sale for 5.00.

I just need that special cabinet to fit next to the washer and dryer. I am thinking an old dresser ? A good excuse to go junking ;) Stay tuned.....................
