My cabinets are stained, sealed and in place!!!!!
Now, I just need to add hinges to the doors and my island cabinet is complete. Total price for the wood is $60. The stain was another $60 (yeah, it was expensive to color match what we currently had, but worth every penny). We do have ample supply of stain should I decide to go building crazy. Until then, I think my kitchen is complete. I'm just so elated at what could be created with a few pieces of wood, a table saw, and my dad at my side...best gift ever.
