I was commissioned by a friend, who is in the process of ready-ing his house to be sold, to overhaul his cabinets. His house is approximately 25 years old and has the original MDF slab doors with brass hardware (very 90’s in look). He asked me to modernize it with something eye catching to grab a prospective buyer. His house had a decent sized kitchen, 2 bathrooms and laundry cabinets to be completed. All in all 33 doors and 16 drawer fronts.

I got to work, cutting the frames and drawer fronts from 4/4 poplar. I utilized an ogee profile rail/stile bit set combined with 6mm Baltic Birch plywood panels. I used BIN shellac primer, followed by some caulking along the panel, and followed up by SW Enamel satin paint, matching the existing cabinet shells. We combined the new doors/drawer fronts with some oil rubbed bronze hardware for a really classy look.

All in all a really fun project, as it afforded the opportunity to purchase a Graco Ultramax airless sprayer. I can honestly say this thing made the project much easier and it was a cinch to use.
