Organization Thursday: Kitchen Cabinet Makeover

 One of the more charming features of my quirky vintage apartment is the built-in glass front china cabinet in the kitchen. I finally gave the cabinet the attention it deserved with a mini makeover.I can't wait to address the whole kitchen with bright colors and added counter space.

1. I took everything out of the cabinets, measured the back of the cabinets, then cut the contact paper out to size.

2. Applied the contact paper. The wall hooks were screwed it to display my favorite coffee mugs for easy access.

3. I only put back in what we use frequently. The rest will be stored in a harder to access bottom cabinet or get added to my antique store booth.

In the end, I have a cabinet that's clutter free and visually appealing. No more struggling to use or find my favorite kitchen supplies! It only took as few minutes to make a big difference in my kitchen.

  1. Absolutely LOVE your kitchen collection... Ugh! Your cabinets are were way less cluttered than mine BEFORE you went through everything! Hehee.

  2. Nice idea! And you have such nice kitchen-y things! I must remember to always buy thrifted from now on - so much nicer than ikea!

  3. Oops, forgot to add that the contact paper was from the dollar store. So this project cost about $1.50 to $2.00 total. I love faux woodgrain.

  4. Our old place had built in, walk in larder and I soooo miss it. The contact paper is a great touch.

  5. I'm about halfway through my kitchen organization, and now you've inspired me! I just picked up a bunch of rolls of flowered contact paper {how on earth do you tell how old contact paper is? Do you know?}. That might be a great idea for my cabinets with glass doors. I did something similar with an old spice wall cabinet I found at a yard sale, and I love it!

  6. I looks great. I love the contact paper. My Aunt had wallpaper just like the one you used for the center shelf.

  7. Alyssa: I wish I knew how to tell.I'm always looking for awesome authentic vintage contact paper but never find it.

  8. What a great feature for an apartment to have! I love the cup hooks... great choice of contact paper, too!

  9. Miffy! Where did you find that mug? I run into a ton of Hello Kitty items, but Miffy is much harder to find.

  10. I love glass front cabinets and being able to see what's in there. In one place where we lived I took all the cabinet doors off and just kept the cabinets as open shelfs. I loved it, but I see it would have been even cooler if I had used contact paper like yours to deck them out a little instead of the plain white that they were. Thank you for sharing.
