What are you most proud of?
That on a budget and with four months of sweat equity, we were able to completely transform our kitchen ourselves.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Remove the doors from the cabinets. Work on a maximum of 4 doors at a time. Strip both sides of the doors first. Paint/Stain and varathane back side of doors and once completely dry, flip over and do the fronts. This is a slow tedious process but with patience, the results are so well worth it.
