I have I told you that I just have apartment at times? Well I do, they are either very generic or have the worst cabinet ever! Our apartment has really out of date cabinets in the kitchen and please don’t get me started on how small the kitchen is in our apartment. We can only have one person at the time in it. Usually everyone want to be in the kitchen with me when I am trying to cook. At times I wish I had open shelving like in their site. I love the industrial look in the kitchen.
However, I have to work with what I have. As you can imagine I spend a couple of hours in the kitchen cooking breakfast, lunch and dinner and I got very tired at looking at my falling apart old looking cabinets.
Now the question is how can I cover the cabinets with out doing any damage to them because I really would like to keep my deposit.
The answer was very simple modge podge! When I used mod podge it wont damage the cabinet with nails or staples. So I just needed a bold fabric to make a statement.
All you will need are;
Hot glue (optional)
All I did was cute the fabric to the dimension of each cabinet and applied the mod podge to the door and fabric to each cabinet. The entire project took less than 30 minutes to complete.
Now the inside of the cabinet has the raw edges of the fabric and might not look every nice when you open the cabinet doors so adding a trim to the fabric with hot glue is ideal. The reason for adding it to on top of the fabric is to not damage the cabinet door when you need to remove the fabric.
You have now nicely cover cabinet doors with little damage to them. You can replace the fabric easily and even use scotch guard so they don’t get to messy with time.
What do you thing of my new cabinets? Now I am a little happier cooking in my little kitchen.
See you soon!
