If you follow our blog, you know that we are budget DIY enthusiasts.  We created a DIY home-gym out of some empty storage space in the basement, provided tips about a DIY remedy for removing a “Stink in Your Sink” and of course, our DIY Peloton App experience.

Now it was time to turn our attention to our dated maple kitchen cabinets.  We knew when we bought the house that we wanted new cabinets but what we didn’t realize was just how expensive new cabinets could be.  Way outside of our budget.

After months of research, we decided to paint them ourselves.  It was much more work that we ever anticipated but the cabinets came out beautiful and it saved us heaps of money.  We owe it all to some old fashioned hard-work,  elbow grease, loads of patience and of course, this special cabinet paint, but more on that later.

Here is a recap of our journey.

WARNING: What you are about to see is a budget friendly home gym that will not look anything like you have pinned on Pinterest.  You have been warned…

Last year we converted an unfinished area of our basement into our own mini-exercise room.  We put up one wall, installed a couple of doors, a dropped ceiling with recessed lights, a TV and interlocking rubber floor mats.  We painted the cement walls bright yellow and bingo – a home gym.  The only thing left is mirrors.  Here is a step-by-step (budget conscience) guide to how we did it.
