[ MUSIC ] Love your kitchen, but want a more
open look? Create open shelving in your kitchen with this step by step tutorial. You could
simply remove the doors, but that doesn’t create a polished look. First, cut out the
middle style with a double edged pull saw. [ MUSIC ] Remove any shelving and set aside.
Next, use a putty knife to remove splinters and loose wood from the hinges, and then fill
the holes and any dings with Bondo, a quick drying two part putty. Let dry according to
package instructions. Then sand the surface smooth. [ MUSIC ] Add extra style to the shelves
with trim. Attach the trim to the shelf with finish nails, and counter- sink them with
a nail punch. Fill nail holes with putty. Now you can finish the cabinet. Next. Caulk
any seams with paintable caulk. Alternate using your finger and a damp sponge or cloth
to remove excess caulk. For extra impact, paint the back of the cabinet with a contrasting
color. We chose a dark gray from the lower cabinets to tie the uppers and lowers together.
[ MUSIC ] Once the paint is dry, reinstall the shelves and fill the cabinet with plates,
bowls and accessories. With these ideas, you can transform regular kitchen cabinets into
beautiful open storage.
