Cabinet Makeover

One of my sweet teammates, Britteny, inspired my latest kitchen makeover.  She hosted a party for me back in December and while I was there, I couldn't stop staring at all HER gorgeous DIY projects.  Not only is she way organized, but she is stylish, resourceful, thrifty, and oh-so-handy!  I especially loved her kitchen and marveled at their wine rack that topped their cabinets.  I was so inspired!  What a great use for that extra space!  She was kind enough to reveal her secrets and before I knew it, I was off to update my own kitchen with a similar look.  Originality is way overrated!

First, I went and bought the accordion style wine racks and placed them on top of my cabinets.  I quickly decided to paint my cabinets a rich expresso color.  Below is a photo of their original white color.

After I primed them and painted them expresso, here is the final outcome.

Now all that is left is filling the wine rack with wine.  Cheers to $3 wine from Whole Foods!  (It is called Three Wishes and for $3 is actually decent wine.  Who doesn't love a bargain?!)

Your cabinets look great! This is on my to-do list for the eventual make over of our kitchen.

My two favorite things - wine and thriftiness! Where did you get the wine rack?
