I hate my kitchen cabinets. They are dark and outdated. I thought I would paint. But wait, that's a ton of work and it sounds like a job I'd hate. Plus, the time! do I really want to spend the hours and hours that it will take? No.
So, I start looking into refacing since the cabinets are structurally fine. So far I've had bids for which my reaction ranged from "Are you drunk?" to "That's a bit of money but not completely unreasonable." I just want them done and looking nice and bright. And, I don't want to spend a ton of money or my own free time. Is that too much to ask? Sometimes homeownership is a drag.
