If I had to pick one thing that made the biggest difference when I sold my last house, it was this: Painting the old kitchen cabinets. To be honest, I should have just replaced them, but we didn’t have the budget to do that, so I did the next best thing. I painted them tuxedo-style, with an inky blue on the bottom and light blue-gray on the uppers. It looked great, and my house sold in days.

It wasn’t the first—and I’m sure it won’t be my last—time painting cabinets. It really is one of my favorite ways to transform a kitchen on a budget. But this particular DIY project is also not all sunshine and rainbows. From my experience, here are some drawbacks you should consider if you decide to do this yourself.
