Basement Apartment Kitchen

This is a kitchen I made for a family friend who has some rental properties in the area. The cabinets are white MCP ad the doors are birch. I’ve attached some pics of the old kitchen I took out of the apartment… what a difference some new cabinets can make!

It’s so nice to see something other than ‘big box’ boxes go into a rental unit. Good job with a tiny space.

Great job!

I promised the Mrs. I would build her a new set of kitchen cabinets. I plan to start them in the fall and complete them over the winter. Hope they turn out as well as yours did.

I really like birch, too. Thanks for sharing.

Night and day. The before does not compare. Should attract some good tenants.

Looks wonderful. Beautiful work, and what a difference it made! It would look even better with lights mounted under the cabinets to eliminate the black hole on the counter tops there.
