Yesterday’s House & Home section in The New York Times featured a question and answer about replacing vs. fixing worn kitchen cabinets. Apparently The Times thinks that refacing or replacing are the only two options. What about sanding and painting what you’ve already got? It seems the least financially taxing. Well, it may be too lowbrow for our tony New York paper, but it’ll have to suit me for the time being.
I’ve also noticed that my upper cabinets are just barely hanging on to the walls. I haven’t put much more than a box of cereal into them for fear that they will come crashing down. I can’t believe someone lived with them dangling as precariously as they are from the wall. It seems they aren’t even screwed into the studs. That’s on my list of top priorities for the weekend (along with the damn toilet tank).
