A couple of months ago, we decided that if we were staying in our home for longer than we thought, we were going to update the kitchen.
The cabinets were looking pretty rough. The finish was faulty to begin with, and we already had the doors replaced once (they were under warranty).
This is what we were looking at each day::
Awful and these replacements weren't even 6 years old!!
With David being a craftsman, he knew that he would rather start over with fresh, unstained doors and reface the frames himself.
So we decided to go that route.
He ordered shaker style cheery doors from his supplier and stained them a Java color.
Aren't they gorgeous??
David decided to install the wall doors first.
The first thing was to take off the old doors and then cut out the center style.
The next step was to reface the front frames.
Very time consuming! And yes, you can see into my cabinets, ha ha!
(It was a perfect opportunity to PURGE all the "stuff".)
Just last night, David hung the wall doors.
(The crown moulding will be installed last.)
Here's a sneak peek!
He even installed self-closing hinges. Very cool.
This is the before picture ::
The next step is to tackle the base cabinets. Picture all drawers! I can hardly wait :)
Until the next update,
