Glass Kitchen Cabinet Upgrade

I always had an image in my head when we built our kitchen, some of it would take some creativity. We used standard pre-fab cabinetry from a local cabinet shop, which meant we were limited in design options to what came standard.

We were able to get glass fronts, make the sizes work, and customize a few to varying depth, but I wanted corbels and fretwork on the glass panels. These details are small, but make big impressions. Time to get creative and add them myself 🤔

PVC Fretwork Panels for a Glass Kitchen Cabinet Upgrade Brushed by Brandy

Abisag PVC Fretwork

These are PVC fretwork panels ordered from Wayfair (similar option, exact was sold out at the time this was written). They come in a variety of designs, and at about $13 each, this whole glass kitchen cabinet upgrade project came in around $40!!

I chose a design that could be cut in half and each panel did 2 glass doors so I only needed to order 3. The lattice design tied in with the shapes in my backslash and kitchen lights.

Measuring PVC Fretwork for Kitchen Cabinet Upgrade Brushed by Brandy

Once each panel was measured, I cut them and sanded the edges.

The closest color of paint to my cabinetry is Buttercream. So they each got 2 coats of Buttercream mineral chalk paint and then sealed in clear coat

I attached each piece to the back of the glass along the frame, using a few beads of clear silicone.

The Corbels under my cabinets were added in the same way, PVC corbels painted to match!

The finished product is a small weekend job that I am completely in love with. These small details make our cabinets feel completely custom!
