Updating old oak cupboards

Exposed hinges of that variety would really stand out against the clean white cabinets.

Having hidden hinges gives you the freedom to change hardware on a whim.

Paint is obviously a big hitter in terms of updating a kitchen, but let’s talk about something else that is equally powerful – cabinet hinges.

At face value, hinges seem pretty straight forward, but they can be tricky, depending upon the kind of cabinets you have and the “overlay” that I mentioned above.

So I’m leaving this task to the pros (although I’m sure I will learn something in the process).

I stained my drawers/doors in the garage, so I moved all of that over there. I would say 1 minute per door and 30 seconds per drawer. The glove is meant to protect your hands from being stained an espresso color.

You’re just wanting to break up some of the shine on cabinets, not completely strip them. You’ll leave your other hand free to wipe off any globs or stain that you might get in places you don’t want them. Then put the last/third coat and let it dry for 5 days and then seal it with 2 coats of satin poly or semi-gloss poly. Drying time is so important, do not rush this step or you will end up having to put on a billion coats of stain and it will not be good.

But the homeowner was concerned about the hinges standing out against a light cabinet color.

A cabinet refresh is going to help tie the updates together, and when we got to talking about the hinges, I did some research, and found a great local woodworker to help change the hinges from exposed to concealed.

And the third is a frameless cabinet where hidden hinges are utilized.

The homeowner has already installed a new tile backsplash, and will also be replacing the floors with new tile and painting the walls once I’m finished with the cabinets.

I used the Lysol dual action wipes because one side is scrubby and the other side is smooth.
