I did this a while ago but just came across the photos on my computer and thought someone may find this interesting.
I hated my fugly dark-wood cheap cabinets in my pantry and new ones were not in the budget, so this is what I did:



I knocked out the inner panel on the doors (ok, my husband really did), sanded all the wood and painted everything with latex paint. After they were dry I stapled chicken wire on the backs of the doors (ok, hubby did that part too) and finally stapled fabric on the backs in a pleated fashion (I did this part, honest) and Voila! new cabinets! It's really cool because I can change the fabric whenever i get bored, I'm thinking cherries next.

What a great job!  They look so cute -- I love the chicken wire.  I'm just about to move into a new house with ugly cabinets, and this may be a good idea for my kitchen.  Thanks for sharing!

That's nice, and I think the cherries would be very cool.

This is so cute! These look just like my "fugly" cabinets, and I think I could manage this. I had a question, though. I see that you've removed the fake drawers from below the counter, but did you do the bottom cabinets, too? I can't really tell from the photo. Also, how is it holding up?

How fun!

Nope, we just did the tops and they are still holding up quite well.  Smiley
