In the first episode, Sarah tackles a kitchen using that budget-friendly & stylish option - IKEA! But yes, this is "bespoke Ikea" (and if you've been a long-time reader here, you know we Renovators definitely like customizing our Ikea!) Sarah's doors are professionally sprayed and the end-product doesn't obviously look like an Ikea kitchen. If you hadn't considered customizing Ikea for your own projects, here's some links that may change your mind.
- An excellent and very informative article by Carol Reed on Painting Ikea Kitchen Cabinets. Definitely read the comments to the post too!
- Margot Austin's gorgeous country kitchen. She used Ikea's Tidaholm oak cabinets painted in ICI's Meeting House in a lacquer in a satin finish.
- Sarah's House 2 kitchen. A custom look by using two shades of paint!
