There's nothing more dramatic, affordable or simpler than paint to transform a room like the once-humdrum kitchen of Shelterpop writer Emily Farris. Emily gave her discolored, grimy cabinets a new life by slapping on multiple coats of Sherwin Williams’ Mariner. Acrylic latex camouflaged the peeling laminate surface’s many flaws and the project cost a grand total of $87 (including $52 for a bottle of wine and two days of takeout since the kitchen was unusable for a weekend). We like the jazzy hue in the black-and-white space. Just make sure to take Emily’s advice and prime before you brush on a new color since it will spare you from having to apply more layers of paint.
