Updating old oak cupboards

Knobs and pulls are kitchen jewelry that can dress cabinets up.

LED light bulbs last for thousands of hours of use.

But you’ll get a huge bang for a few bucks by buying 10-packs of simple, contemporary hardware at big box stores for less than (that’s a knob! To save time and money, replace 1-hole hardware with 1-hole upgrades; 2-hole with 2-hole. Nothing updates old cabinets as quickly as fresh coat of paint.

Painting cabinets yourself is cost-effective — a few gallons of paint, sandpaper, cleaner — but the process is time-intensive.

It’s easiest to add molding when you’re repainting cabinets; that way you’ll get a perfect match.

If you order matching wood molding from your cabinet’s manufacturer, be prepared for a color difference between new molding and older cabinets.

I guess it serves me right for paying only paying .00 at walmart.
