For those who are curious about what all my sanding of cabinets is looking like...I will post a progression with pictures in the replies (I am mobile).

A little back story, we moved from AZ to NC in August. Bought a house that we are completely remodeling everything...we currently live in the dining room, haha, the cleanest room in the house.

My husband and I disagreed about these cabinets, yes they were ugly, but they were solid oak, structurally in good condition. He wanted new cabinets, I wanted to save money and give them a face lift...so, here we go....

Then with hubby's help, cut bead board paneling to fit within the frame, and caulked around the inner edge

Some of our cabinets were raised panel, so we faked it, cut a panel, and made a frame out of moulding
