my DIY high
There's nothing quite like stepping back and saying, "Yes, I made that."
At this point you should have already removed your cabinets by unscrewing the 4 screws that hold them up. Next, slide your cabinet all the way up to the ceiling! It's a two (or three) person job. I'm super short, so I got on the counter to hold from under the cabinets.
Through this process, I learned that my ceiling is incredibly uneven. I was totally amazed at how uneven. The important thing is that your cabinets are even, so make sure to use a level before you reattach!
Literally, so short.
You want to make sure you reattach to studs in the wall. If you're placing your cabinets in the same location, just a bit higher, then you know there are studs where the old screws were. We used this logic and had no problems hitting the studs every time. Until I learned that the cabinets on either side of my stove WERE ONLY ATTACHED TO ONE STUD. I'm still so nervous about it. All of the cabinets on that side of the kitchen are connected though...so it must be okay?
And that's it! You have some really high cabinets so go get a step stool!
