Stained Cabinets

The kitchen cabinets have been shrouded in plastic for weeks now, ever since the backsplash and counter tops were installed and the cabinets were stained.  They were unveiled yesterday since the painting is almost completed, and it was a bit of a thrill to see them again in all of their glory.

I couldn’t get a good shot of the pantry or peninsula-end of the kitchen because of the lighting, so I don’t have any pics of those areas for you.  But isn’t it coming along nicely?

      Hi! They are maple cabinets, and we used Minwax Special Walnut for the stain, with a satin poly. :)

    Is that a single sink?

    • Liz - It's Great To Be Home says:

      Yep! They’re my fave – I know some will disagree, but I think divided bowls are a huge pain. ;)

      • This looks great. Simplicity at its finest. The single sink is fine and it’s easy to clean too! Thanks for sharing this post and looking forward to seeing the end result. Happy New Year to you and your family!

    Yes! A summary would be great. By the way, what brand are your kitchen cabinets? They are awesome.

    • Liz - It's Great To Be Home says:

      Thanks, Julia! The cabinets are custom – sorry that’s not very helpful!
