While stained-wood and white-painted kitchen cabinets are the norm, it doesn't mean you have to stick with tradition. In a room ruled by function and sometimes lacking in decorating opportunity, painted cabinets can add interest and color. Use a solid, bright finish for a contemporary space, or distress door and drawer edges for a more casual look.

Decorating Rules You Can Break

Paint Kitchen Cabinets Use a solid, bright finish for a contemporary space, or distress door and drawer edges for a more casual look.

Twist two screw hooks into holes drilled in an inconspicuous door edge (the lower edge for bottom cabinets, the upper edge for top cabinets). Paint the door's outside face as above. Let it dry for an hour while resting flat, then tilt the door up onto its hooks and put a drywall screw into an existing hardware hole. Hold the tilted door up by the screw and paint the door's back side.

Handy trick: when painting cabinet doors (especially w/ oil paint) twist screw hooks into an inconspicuous edge. Allows for easy flipping and hang drying (via this old house)
