Cabinet Refacing

ARRGGHH – I have GOT to build the IKEA supplementary cabinets so that I can place the order for our refacing supplies.  We will be getting doors, drawer fronts, and beautiful side panels to allow us to reuse all but 1 of our existing cabinets.

For lack of a better place to put my notes for measuring the frameless IKEA doors, here it is.  The guy told me to measure the outer frame edge to edge and take 1/8 inch off that measurement to give the door enough room to close.  For the Double cabinet with no center stile, I’m to do the same but take an additional 1/8 off to allow for each door to close without bonking its partner.

We’re going with Cafe Maple with a Shaker style door.  Should be lovely and warm.

Here is the layout as it is likely to end up.  Thank you to my construction & design guru (AKA my sister-in-law) for the final refinements.  The woman is a genius.
