Kitchen Renovation - Cabinetry

The cabinetry was a project pretty much taken on by Mrs. 4Czech. The original cabinetry was a light wood finish but looked severely weathered or (distressed). The cabinetry is of sound quality so we decided to keep our existing stock and repaint and refit with all new door handles and knobs. We had to first sand the cabinet faces and "scalloped edges" to be paintable. We then applied a coat of primer before finishing with a final coat of an "off white" finish. We are very pleased with the outcome........especially after several weeks of trying to live in a work zone. We are almost done..... We still have to complete the range backsplash and finish installing the wainscotting between the counter and the cabinetry. We will get there soon! At least I can cook in the kitchen now.
