Professional Tips

Adding a kitchen counter post

I purchased a plain rubber wood post (you can find a similar rubber wood post or buy any other type of wood post you’d like) at the local kitchen design store to make it look more symmetrical. 

YOUR SUPPLY LIST:

* coping saw
* finish nails, liquid nails and caulk
* kilz primer
* cabinet coat
* painters tape
* paint brush and roller


Step 1

Rip off existing molding - things will get messy.

Step 2

Glue the post to the cabinet, cut the molding to size, predrill the holes before nailing and glue the molding to the cabinets and then caulk everything.

Step 3

Primer and paint everything so it looks like a true part of the piece!
