We started the kitchen cabinet cleaning over the weekend and discovered several problems:
PROBLEM #1: DRAWER GUIDES
Several drawers are missing guides, or the guide ROLLERS are missing… Ugh. Look at how OLD these things are!
This “bottom-mount” style is no longer available and there’s no sides to mount today’s “side-mount” style…
It’s going to be hairy to get these out and replace them! Hmmmm…. we’ll figure that out later.
PROBLEM #2: RANGE OPENING
We had planned to convert the range opening from a slide-in / drop-in style to a freestanding style. Mostly because it makes for easier access for maintenance AND about 1/2 the cost to replace.
Seemed simple enough- just take the range out, cut away the tile floor trim, bust out the solid piece on the bottom and cut the tile countertop back to the wall.
So we pulled the stove and tossed it.
