show me and/or let's talk about cabinet curtains instead of doors
Ok, my kitchen reno is not going to happen anytime soon. I have been living with it for over a year now, but it is time to do something inexpensive to make it look presentable.
I have the original kitchen cabinets (mid 1970s) made of particle board, with tacky contact paper showing. THERE ARE NO DOORS ON THE CABINETS! Yes, you heard me right. No doors. Apparently at some point the original cabinets had a white formica face put on them. That part (the frames, I guess you call them) look pretty good.
I don't mind leaving the top cabinets open, with no doors. I have my pretty plates and glasses and some cookbooks displayed up there. I will line the shelves and maybe the back of the cabinets with something pretty.
The bottom cabinets look really bad, plus I keep cleaning products and not so pretty stuff down there. I don't keep anything related to food or cooking on the bottom, because the cabinets are so gross, it would just be unappetizing.
I bought 10 yards of burlap. I want to attach the burlap onto the cabinets. But how? Sticky Velcro? Should I put the burlap up inside the cabinet, so the top is behind the countertop? Or should I adhere it on the face of the cabinet? I want it to drap down to the bottom of the cabinet. There will then be several inches (I guess about 3", you know, the standard amount) between bottom of cabinet and the floor that will still be visible.
I got the idea here...at this link. I am using the Stitch Witchery like she did. It is a lot harder to cut and "hem" the burlap than she makes it out to be! Also, I am SUPER DUPER UNCRAFTY! I just don't want to spend a lot of $$$.
Thank you for any input.
