Shaker Style cabinet doors DIY style

Pleas excuse the mess in the pictures. It is too cold to work in the garage up here in the northwest, so this project took over our entire kitchen and dining room. We built these frame and panel-style doors using Ana's plans from the mom-plex bathroom vanity! We are so excited because we spent about $100 including paint and have plenty of leftover materials for the drawers next week!

These are the original cabinets in our 75 year old house and they were in serious need of rehab. We even contemplated ripping them out and using Ana's cabinet plans to build new ones but after we removed the shelves, the carcass of the cabinets were still in good shape. We filled, sanded, painted and built these new amazing doors that I'm seriously losing my mind over. They are so beautiful and I don't think I could have ordered something better. Maybe better made but how sweet is it to save all that money by building them yourselves?

We'll post drawer pictures after we get those finished up and hopefully have a clean kitchen at that point. :)

Thanks Ana! Our home is becoming truly special with the skills we learned from you!
