Same kitchen, just re-faced. The old doors were given away, retro plastic laminate super heavy, super ugly….replaced with rift sawn white oak, book matched and sequenced.

For any one in the business, re-facing is simple quick with a healthy profit margin. It’s appealing to the consumer as it’s about 1/3 the cost of replacing the kitchen. You (in most cases ) just refinish the old doors where the stains and coatings are “tired” looking. Had great results with conversion varnishes avoiding the perils of coating compatibility

very nice! I love the long handles. Gives it a very contemporary look.

Wow, what a transformation! I can’t guess how much of the change is due to the paint. It defiantly has an impact. The new stove top and frig change the look as well. The new cabinet doors look great. Add all the changes together and it’s quite dynamic.
