When a client emails us a photo's of their kitchen ...
Before photo
Here's the before photo... they told us their planning on renting the home and are looking to update it.... (on a tight budget)
Before photo
We made an appointment to take a look in person.
They confessed that the cabinets were hand painted several times.
We brought in the doors and drawers into our shop and stripped them down to the bare wood.
We used Superior Paint Co. Little White to refinish the cabinets and sealed with Superior Paint Co. Top Coat.
The counter top we built from solid Okanagan grown Douglas fir.
We applied a resin coat to the counter top for durability.
Here's a close up of the resin top.
We're super happy with this transformation!

    looks awesome. How much did that all cost? The countertop had to be expensive and where would one go for a countertop like that? Also did you redo the floors?
