Basement Cabinets Are Fabulous!

The basement punchlist continues into infinity, but I can check off the new cabinets. They are done!

I used Polyshades "Honey Pine" Gloss from Minwax and, I have to admit, I won't be using it again. It's a stain and polyurethane in one but I still needed to do a third layer of just poly on the top because it didn't feel wipeable. I was hoping to avoid that. Fortunately, I had water-based polyurethane leftover from the bathroom vanity project.

Here are the cabinets in progress ...

And a final picture of the cabinets all done and styled out. It's the first thing you see walking down the stairs and having it done is a SUPER feeling. And, yes, the nerdy husband had a lot to say about what was included on the cabinets.

After: Cabinets Are Done and Approved!
These cabinets (from Ikea) are being used for (starting from the left) Dave's stuff, games, crafting supplies and my storage. And just this week we used the table for a school craft project, because all the supplies were right there! Score!
