I didn’t have the time or energy and they didn’t have money for new cabinet so i did a make-over. Made new doors added crown molding and cabinet moldings. Eliminated base cabinet doors and made and installed drawers with soft close undermount slides. New appliances are in the future. I think it’s turning out pretty good. Thought I’d post it

It really looks amazing, I recently built a hardwood plywood cabinet in my bathroom . My bathroom was getting very cluttered so I finally decided to get one build, I used the ideas from a blog from better living dispenser that mentions some tips on keeping the cabinets organized.

Thanks all for the kind words. Started out with 1/2” overlay doors for a test piece. My daughter liked the look of full overlay. So I bought 15/16” overlay hinges and built the door so there was only an 1/8” gap between the doors. I prayed the door wouldn’t hit when they were opened….turned out like I planned…thank you Lord!
