Strange but true: oak cabinetry CAN look nice! I know, I had to read that sentence twice to make sure I wasn’t joking too. I think the raging hatred that exists for typical oak cabinets is due to the fact that 99% of them are usually a horrible faux-oak, (I tried to combine those words into a singly catchy word, but it looked very much like a swear word), very cheaply made and rocking an obnoxious orange hue.
But Renee’s cabinets had actually held up pretty well, as her home hadn’t been updated since the 80′s. The cabinets were just about the only thing that DIDN’T get a touched in this kitchen makeover. But even though I think they look pretty great, guess what? Renee is planning to stain them a red mahogany, which will be even better! So I guess the oak loses again. Sorry oak, I tried my best.
