15 Minute Cabinet Face Lift

First off, I need to explain how great my Fiance is.  If he gets an idea in his head, he can't rest until it is done.  I absolutely love this about him. 

So,we just finished painting our kitchen cabinets last week.  (I'm so mad that I didn't take a before picture)  We used one of those Rustoleum kits from Lowe's and it was great.  Our cabinets were a very unfinished looking wood color before so we painted them a crisp white.

Ok, now I can finish my story...  A friend of ours mentioned that we should put crown molding around the tops of our cabinets to give them a more custom look.  This was mentioned Saturday night and Dan got right on it on Sunday morning.

This literally took him around 15 minutes to do.  He made a few cuts and just nailed it up there.  Then he just filled in the spaces with caulk and painted them to perfection.

Here are some before and after shots....



What a difference right??
