Easy Weekend Project: DIY Painted Cabinets


At one point or another, most of us have endured the orangey hue of builder grade or dated cabinets, both in the kitchen and bath variety. Let’s face it, life could be a lot worse, but it’s hard not to fawn over the sleek and modern or light and bright kitchens and baths we’re always saving on Pinterest. Many of us don’t have the budget for all new cabinets, or we’re renting and a full renovation isn’t even an option. We’re BIG fans of the results an ol’ bucket of paint can give you when you’re dealing with budgetary and/or landlord restrictions, and apparently, so are our readers.

We did a little call out on Instagram Stories to see our readers kitchen and bath cabinet makeovers, and here we’re sharing just a few of our favorites, along with a few resources to help you get started this weekend.


  • Cordless drill to remove all hardware (we love this one and this one!)
  • Mini roller
  • Paint brush
  • Primer
  • Paint color of choice
  • Top coat for durability/easily remove stains
