“The final product is beautiful!”
My kitchen cabinets were in good shape and they were solid maple. However, they were twelve years old and starting to yellow from exposure to the hot Florida sun. I wanted a change. But, I was not sure what I wanted to spend or how much mess I wanted to deal with. I obtained some estimates for painting and refacing that seemed overly expensive. The high cost of the estimates encouraged me to look online for ideas. I have basic handyman skills and home owner type tools so I thought a DIY might be the answer.
When I found KitchenReface’s web site, the answer to my question on kitchen improvement became clear. I ordered a sample door. It was higher quality and more beautiful than I expected. I did not want to work with veneer so I ordered a quart of paint.
The match with door was remarkable. I ordered twenty-six doors, five drawer fronts, and five lengths of crown moulding.
The entire project took about five days. That time included emptying twenty-six cabinets and removing the doors as well as the crown moulding. The final product is beautiful! I have two friends who work in the housing industry and they were blown away by the quality and the look of my reface project. One word of caution. If you plan to install crown moulding, you may want some experienced help. I have a good friend with excellent skills and excellent equipment who helped with the moulding.
The rest is easy. I now plan to do my bathrooms!!!
