This is a set of drawers that was in my kitchen when we moved here. It's actually the only set...and there was only one other drawer...and it was a tiny one...this is why I decided to get a set of drawers for my bar area...not a drawer/door.
I wasn't real thrilled about buying an unfinished cabinet for the kitchen, but to have a chance of matching the stain, we decided to go ahead and do that...instead of buying one of the finished ones that for sure wouldn't match. Besides...they were quite a bit cheaper that way! :-))
NOW....I'm really happy we did get the unfinished ones...cause as seen above, we found a stain that was really close to the right color so I stained them, and put a couple of clear coats over the stain, and they really turned out to be a good match (except for shinier) to the original cabinets that were here!
I'm not a woodworker, but am QUITE happy with how they turned out! Now I'm not worried at all about getting more for the dining room, when we manage to get them. I KNOW I'll be able to make them look nice.
Yippee, so happy the color is a close match...now to just get them installed! :-))
