So my skanky kitchen cabinets have had its first baby step at a new life.  My Father-in-Law and the Mister added molding to the top of them and I can’t begin to tell you how good it looks...progress pictures to come.  If you are reading this and thinking what in the world is she talking about let me explain.  My cabinets are gross, orange, builder grade cabinets that don’t go to the ceiling which sucks.  If given the choice ALWAYS TAKE YOUR CABINETS to the ceiling!!!  It looks SO much better and will make your room feel taller. 

Exhibit A:

This kitchen looks like they forgot the molding….so gorgeous but that gap would be a bia to dust.

Exhibit B:

These kitchen the cabinets appear to have added molding and wood to make the shorter cabinets go all the way to the ceiling….clever and lookin good

Exhibit C:


Now if you have really tall ceiling of course you can't take them to the ceiling because that would be dumb but at least make them as tall as possible....see below.



  1. oh man, the tiled walls and apron sink in that second kitchen? be still, my heart. can't wait to see progress pics of your kitchen!!
