The Cabinet Upcycle

Our first project for the blog! We have a couple more that we’re still in progress on, but until we get to those, here’s a little taste of what we’re excited to do!

Lessons Learned

Given this was our first upcycle together, we definitely learned a few new things.

– When adding trim, make sure your brad nails are longer than your trim is thick if you decide to use that method to attach them (…duh).

– When painting over particle board laminate, two coats of gripper primer and two coats of paint make for a pretty solid, smooth finish.

– When painting inside furniture, start with the corners and details. The finish tends to come out a little more smooth and blended.
