The $30 kitchen makeover

A little paint transforms a kitchen

On the other side of the kitchen, she rejuvenated the existing wall cabinet by removing four of the doors to create open shelves, exposing the handsome beadboard paneling.

The "new" display cabinet ― which shows off china and glassware ― repeats the yellow-and-blue theme.

As a final touch, both decorative and functional, Churcher fashioned a kitchen table from one of the removed cabinet doors.

She sandwiched French playing cards between sheets of teal and clear acrylic plastic for a sleek new surface. With the transformed appliances and fresh new color scheme, it makes the kitchen a bright, happy space.

PAINT COLORS: Kelly-Moore Rust-Oleum in Periwinkle Blue; latex and enamel paints are custom-mixed.
