Before/after pictures-oak to cream/glazed -pictures
We re-did our standard builder's grade oak (nothing wrong w/oak, we had just had them for 4 houses and 20 years)- Re-used all the cabinets we had,filled the wood grain, painted and glazed-cut out the inside and put some glass. I actually had a painter paint and I did the glazing. We redid this for under $9500! That includes the granite, but not the new appliances. We recessed the "ovenwall" 1 foot-and added the foot to the island overhang for more stools and put the GE Cafe slide in where the gas cooktop was. A much more functioning spot and added much needed stool space-So glad it's over-and happy w/the results- gained 10 pounds during the process ordering out so much!
