What a great day today! We finished up the first half of the doors, and had them up by 5:30pm. Mike left to catch the hockey game tonight and I'll lay out the rest of the doors and start sanding them.
As you can see, we kept the old brass hinges for a few reasons:
1. they are 30 years old and are obsolete
2. I will be on budget if we reuse them.
They don't look horrible, but if I was redoing the kitchen from scratch I wouldn't use dark hinges with white cabinets. Mike did talk me into knobs, though, so I will be looking for some soon. I agreed with him that knobs will slow down any dark or dirty markings that may occur on the white doors. We think we've settled on glass knobs, as they won't stand out like a sore thumb on the white background.
Either of these would be nice, and I will go tomorrow to see what Home Depot has to offer.
So far we really like it, but it's very white, and I'm looking forward to toning it down with the new counter and tile.
