Customizing Cabinets

DIY.

Casegoods are not cheap, but we all need ample amount of storage to hide our odds and ends. Retailers like Ikea, West Elm, and Target have some inexpensive solutions…but they often feel a little basic and ordinary.

And that’s why I LOVE this DIY from Fresh Home Magazine. It costs next to nothing and adds such charm and pop to the ordinary.



Here are the details on how you can take on this task…and it only costs around $15:

1. Use your computer to create words in different fonts, enlarging as needed to reach the correct size, and print out.

2. Securely tape letters or words to drawer fronts.

3. Hammer upholstery nails through paper along letters' outlines.

4. Carefully pull off printer paper, leaving nailheads in place.
