I still love our Kitchen Cabinet Update! Cutting Trim allowed us to update our cabinets, pennies per door! Over the past year I’ve emailed a lot of pictures to sweet readers that wanted to see a close up picture of the final reveal! I love the interaction with each of you and hope that you’ll continue to take the time to correspond! With the number of questions I’ve received, I assume others would be interested in seeing a few close up shots of the edges and corners –
