This project was a remodel of the existing 1960 vintage carpenter-built-on-site cabinetry.
Halimah previously had a granite countertop installed and did not want it moved or affected in anyway.
We replaced the uppers completely. The lowers, we refaced with new face frames, drawers, drawer fronts,
doors and paneling. All the interior shelving was either replaced or refaced. The end result
was a new looking kitchen with the skeleton of the old and the untouched granite. The work was done
while Halimah was out of town. When she got home she painted the walls and moved in.|
||This kitchen was created with Maple frame and Maple veneer panel doors,
solid maple drawer fronts and face frames. The red colors added (Halimah's choice) are
created by adding pigment to our usually clear conversion varnish. |
||As you can see when you expand these thumbnails, we found some beautiful curley
Maple veneer and lumber.|
||These photos show the silverware drawer insert and one of the corner lazy susans on
each side of the sink.|
||Here is a great photo of our favorite way to install counter worksurface lighting.
The Halogen lights can be bought in most hardware stores. The trick is to hide all the ugly wiring
that they require and still provide easy access for maintence and have it all look good.|
