This is lovely! How did you build your doors? I am remodeling my kitchen and want to build cabinet doors like yours. What type and thickness of wood did you use? How did you assemble them? What kind of hinges did you use? Any other help you can give me would be great!

Hi Liz! Thanks for the comment. Let's see with the doors... I followed Ana's instructions very closely on this project, so definitely whatever her directions say. I used beadboard that is about 1/4" thick and then framed it with 1x3 boards. This was before I got my Kreg Jig, and it was kind of tricky getting it attached without leaving all kinds of holes everywhere...but I would recommend building the frame using the Kreg Jig (screw the top and bottom to the sides) and then attaching it to the beadboard with glue and short nails. The hinges were just very basic, 'nothing fancy', overlay hinges. I had to work with what I could get down here at the time, so these may not have been the best hinges to use because I had to attach them on the outside of the door, so you can easily see them. But you should be able to find some that work based on the kind of setup you have. I'm still in the learning process myself, so I would say the best thing to do is just jump in a start trying stuff out. I've done a hand full of projects and I'm learning something new with each one. I hope this helps a little... if there's anything else I can help with I will sure try :)
