Kitchen cabinets: The pros and cons of DIY painting, buying Ikea or going custom

When Molly Miller moved into her new house last summer, the kitchen was dark, with black countertops and only one small window. And, “it had beautiful, early 2000s cabinetry,” she says. “The people before us really loved that honey oak. They really loved it.”

She has a friend who repainted her kitchen herself, and thought about giving it a try since she was staying home due to the pandemic. “I started looking into it, and I didn’t think I could do a very good job,” she says. “I didn’t want it to look junky. I wanted it to look professional.”

They found gorgeous hand-hewn beams, a cozy brick fireplace and other gems. The best part about watching their journey is that because it isn’t a full-scale television production, you get to enjoy the intimacy of their entire renovation journey without any fluff.

You’re no Bob Vila, but part of being a homeowner or renter is knowing how to tackle common home repair projects on your own. We’re talking about tasks that fall somewhere between changing a lightbulb and hardwiring a light fixture. These projects aren’t exactly no-brainers, but they also won’t put you at risk of electrocution.

But in the age of COVID-19, perhaps the biggest reason to improve your DIY skills is to reduce the number of folks who enter your home—and that includes repairmen and maintenance workers. So if you can master basic home repair skills, you can be self-reliant and stay safe.
