You no longer need to buy new cabinets to create a beautiful new kitchen. Cabinet refacing is cost-effective, and requires less time and mess than a total kitchen remodel, yet the results can be just as good as or better than building new cabinets. In this book, remodeling professional Herrick Kimball shows you how to transform your outdated kitchen into your dream kitchen using wood veneer and new cabinet doors and drawer fronts. Add a new countertop and a fresh coat of paint on the walls, and you have a completely new look.

However, there are many tricks to achieving top-quality results. The techniques described in this book will allow anyone with basic woodworking skills to redo an existing kitchen at a fraction of the cost of replacing all the cabinets. This book also provides an invaluable resource for remodeling professionals who want to get involved in one of the fastest-growing segments of the kitchen remodeling marketplace.
