I went to Michaels (since it had been about 2 days - I was due for an appearance;). I spotted some adorable scrapbook paper. It was blue. And red. And precious. And perfect! Could I use PAPER to cover the foam board?? I was a little hesitant, because I knew I'd need a few pieces to cover each board and wasn't sure if the seams would show. But at 4 for a buck, I figured it was worth a shot!
First thing I did was measure the back of the cabinet to determine how big of a piece of foam I'd need.
Do you notice those wood marks down the middle? That's another update we did. I decided to remove the strip of wood that came down the center - thought it looked a little too much like we forgot to put our cabinet doors back up;) Paul just used his compact saw and it took all of 5 seconds.
Here's what they looked like before:
And one last thing we also want to do to the cabinets (HA! Couldn't even type that with a straight face! We know darn well there will be more than one last thing!) is add molding to them to make them look a little Shaker style-esque. Like these:
So that's the latest on the kitchen...it hasn't been the quickest project, but we're getting there slowly but surely! Do you have open cabinets that need a little something? I think this is the perfect solution! My Nate...he's such a genius. :)
