Thanks everyone for your advice! I am so nervous and indecisive about this whole thing! As if I need another reason to drink
This kitchen project was started 6 months-I got quotes to replace counters, replace cabinets and reface cabinets--we ended up putting it on the back burner. Well, now it is on the front burner again as we are taking down wallpaper and repainting and the countertops really need to go. We really can't afford new cabinets but we really hate them and are afraid they may not last long as well as that the new countertops will not help us like them more.
Could I live with these cabinets - yes, however, they are white thermafoil and have began warping (next to the stove), are chipped (near the floor on the desk) and peeling. We are afraid we are going to have to replace them within the next 10 years anyways so swallow the pill now and get it over with. That is why we were thinking of installing ourselves-to save $. Both places we are looking at will measure, so that makes me feel better. I am nervous about hanging them ourselves although my cousin has done this in the past and said he will help. Anyone know how long white thermafoil cabinets last? Should we bite the bullet and do it all now or just do the cabinets and hope it will look better and the cabinets will last?
