Updating almond melamine cabinets vragenlijst datingsite
Now I know some people long for the 80s but this builder, melamine-cabinet-with-oak-trim kitchen is a welcomed throw-back. I consider myself blessed to be able to walk into a room and see it’s potential.
Consider yourself lucky that those memories are distant because this here, this is my reality, or at least it was my reality up until a few short weeks ago.
Here’s the thing you should know about me and why I could have never done this project without my parents.
I’m terrible at measuring and I’m terrible at math. I can do the vision and the logistics but trying to make sense of how much plywood I’d need would have lead to a mental breakdown. We brought the strips of wood home as well as a rented mitre saw and got to it.
With the help of my parents (thank-freaking-God) we got started on converting these old doors into cute and modern shaker style cabinets.
I bought a piece of 1/8″ plywood and had the lovely folks at Home Depot cut it into 2″ strips.
After taking a few measurements and visiting both Ikea and Home Depot I learned this wasn’t really an option because my cabinets weren’t standard sizes. A visit back to the proverbial drawing board and I had a new solution.
It was a bit unconventional but I thought it just might work.
