This was a nice small project with an opaque conversion varnish applied to inset doors. This is a classic style kitchen here in Maine in the turn of the century type homes that has quite the appeal today. The conversion varnish gives it a finish that is extremely durable and easy to clean. 

The hinges used were Blum soft close clip tops to give it a nice custom effect. Drawers have the same soft close Blumotion effect.

The kitchen has 4 drawers, 11 doors, a refrigerator panel, a trash bin rollout and lazy suzan. 

2-3/4" cove moulding tops the uppers with a detailed light rail at the bottom.

The countertops are going to be finished with a honed absolute black with a tiled backsplash.
