We recently updated our Master Bathroom by making a few simple changes. I have shared a few of the changes in some past posts as it is a work in progress. We are almost to the point where we can officially add it to the “finished project list”. But still have a few little things to work on. And if any of you have ever done a little remodeling, you know how long it can take to get to some of them. Today I want to share with you how we went about updating builder grade cabinets.
This is was a really easy addition that really made a the regular old cabinets feel a bit more upscale. We simply added a couple of finial feet to the base of the cabinets. That is it.
I love how they instantly give the cabinet a much more expensive look.
We simply purchased a couple of the finial wood accents at Lowe’s who had a pretty good selection with different styles and sizes. They cost $5.98 each. A lot cheaper than those expensive custom cabinets.
We removed the screws because we did not want to screw them in. These finial pieces were a little bit too short…so we simply took a couple of pieces of scrap wood and cut them into squares so that they fit perfectly on top of the base of the circle and then under the cabinet. Then we glued them to the big circle with Gorilla Wood Glue.
After the glue was completely dry, we painted it the same color as the cabinets (which we painted as well…I will share how we did that later this week as I have had several questions from some of you).
We had to paint two coats to cover it completely. Then we simply glued them into place. Then we added a touch of white painter’s caulk to fill any cracks. You can also touch up any paint if needed where the new finial foot attaches to the base of your cabinet.
Here is the cabinet BEFORE we added the finial feet…
And here is the cabinet AFTER adding the finial pieces.
A pretty simple addition that can dress up and update your older cabinets. They look and feel like new cabinets.

(We framed in the mirrors in our Master Bedroom and also our Girls Bathroom…the tutorial is for the Girls Bathroom but it is the same process.)
And for those who may be interested, the paint color on the walls is Benjamin Moore’s Rockport Gray.
