Ater the new tile was installed the cabinets were the wrong color and style. The mirror trim around the mirrors was the first to go. I removed the doors and drawers and sanded away the finish. New doors, drawer fronts and mirror trim are cherry in the Shaker style. Loose tenons and solid panels make up the construction. Varathane wood conditioner and Varathane stain, (I really like the sample packets of stain to test color for .25 cents a pop). A few coats of wipe on poly with 220 grit sanding between coats. I ended up building a little corner jig with wedges to clame the 10’ mirror frame together.
