Hi…

Well it was a mess last week and finally got finished up and then cleaned up yesterday!  I’m glad to be settling back in this week and putting all my things back in the new cabinets.  I have some additional space now as the main section was made about 12 inches higher and larger doors installed.  I also like that some small drawers were combined to make large drawers and the doors under the cooktop were changed to large pot drawers.

I’m very happy with the espresso finish, it has just enough brown and black so it takes on different hues, depending on the light.  The new color works great with my island and counter tops.  It really makes my backsplash pop and the project did not cause any damage to my plaster work!

Here’s a few before and after shots so you can see the transformation along with a few random shots of the finished space.
