At long last, here is my finished kitchen:
We won’t talk about the condition of these cabinets. The paint freshened them up a bit, but they are in sad, sad shape. I’m glad I took on this project, because otherwise, I probably wouldn’t have noticed an impending disaster until it was too late: The top shelf in one of my cabinets — where I was storing all of my china, right above the shelf where I store all my glassware — has a foot-long crack in it that’s so wide you can see daylight through it. I shudder to think about how much damage that would have done if I hadn’t caught it in time to take all the heavy stuff off the shelf, which I plan to replace next weekend.
Detail shots of the cabinet doors are below the fold.
