Thorold oak kitchen cabinet refinish

Completed November, 2017

We were hired to refinish a 40 year old oak kitchen in Thorold. The client requested a modern look so we suggested new oak shaker doors with concealed, soft close euro hinges and new hardware. The client also wanted custom panels for the dishwasher in the same shaker style. Our thorough prep process of degreasing and strip sanding down to bare wood provided the perfect blank slate for a new sound finish. After the undercoat, 2 coats of waterborne lacquer in Benjamin Moore OC-117 (Simply White) and 2 coats of clear, the kitchen looks brand new.  New doors always finished offsite.  Finishing products by Target Coatings include Emtech 6500 and 9300.  The client also had a new soapstone countertop installed as well as new backsplash. Professional installation by John Taddeo.
 
Special thanks to Roman & Angela for the job.
