Embellished Cabinets

The cabinets we picked out for our Kitchen reno are plain unfinished oak cabinets. I wanted to add a cap and crown molding to add height as well as character, we used oak plywood and stock crown molding to get this look.
This particular cabinet will have a glass front door and the interior will be painted white like the exterior. It's amazing how a little molding can really change the look. I've got tons of painting to do but I think when we get finished it will look great.
And for a much needed break, I'm off to Atlanta this Friday for the County Living Fair, I can't wait! This is their first year in Atlanta and I'm sure it will be fabulous.

  2. Am LOVING it so far! Can't wait to see it all finished and decorated!

    Could you post a close up of the trim you used to bridge the gap between the existing cabinet form and the plywood you added? It's not super clear in the pic.

    Have fun at the fair!

  7. Lovely! I just did something similar (adding molding to an otherwise ordinary piece) in my living room on a bookshelf. I love the idea, and it was my husbands. I think I'll make him a decor expert afterall!

  10. Hmm, crown molding.....That may be just what I need in my kitchen to hopefully kinda sorta maybe hide the unevenness of this old house....I'm sure my hubby will love it, he so loves me finding new projects for him *snicker*

  12. Wow! Now, that's one huge difference! I don't know if you've ever been to Rue's Peanut Butter and Jelly Life, but she did a fabulous little topper on the top of her cabinets too. Sort of like little open boxes... I was blown away by the difference it made. Sadly, she's no longer blogging. Darn. I always thought I could go back and look at that cute idea if I ever had the need.

    Can't wait to see your finished project. It's yummy so far!

    Warm blessings,
    Spencer

  13. I am loving the look of your cabinet. Say, do you plan on painting the inside white as well? I would do the same.
