Kitchen Improvement – Removing Cabinet Doors

As a renter, our kitchen is one of the most frustrating areas.  The kitchen in our current apartment is long and narrow with standard wooden cabinet doors, not exactly the light and airy space with open shelving that I dream of!  Unfortunately for renters there isn’t many options for making over a boring kitchen space.  It is not like I can paint the kitchen cabinets…therefore I

Creating a Coffee Station
