Easy Kitchen Cabinet Makeover

Updated: Nov 15

Sometime between 1970 and 1990, homeowners decided to renovate (AKA ruin) kitchens and bathrooms in old, historic homes.

I would give a large sum of money (that I don't actually have) to see what my kitchen looked like pre-1979. And even more money to see the ORIGINAL kitchen circa 1923.

My kitchen is totally fine. That's how I would describe it. And, it feels extremely cozy– like a kitchen that you would want to make a Thanksgiving dinner in.

Once I moved into my house and added my own decor and beloved knickknacks, the kitchen felt so much better. In other words, I'm in no rush to renovate the kitchen and take it back to its original era.

However, I decided to switch out the kitchen cabinet hardware. This is quite literally the easiest and quickest way to give kitchen cabinets (of any kind) a makeover.

In a perfect world, I would have the energy and motivation to paint the cabinets white, but this will do for now.

I opted for this crystal hardware because I love the timeless look of original crystal door knobs in historic homes.

My first thought before swapping out the hardware was ... "do people use this type of hardware on kitchen cabinets? "These look like something you would use on a dresser." My next thought was ... who cares!

These crystal kitchen cabinet knobs are extremely versatile and can be used on just about anything (bathroom cabinets, office drawers, and dressers just to make a few.) I give them a big ole 10/10.

And as part of my frequent cleaning routine, you better believe I sparkle them up with my glass cleaner on the regular. Virgo brains are interesting.
