We finally installed the doors on the cabinets! The Kitchen is finally starting to come together.

Mike cleaned all the original hinges (they were nasty and covered in rust) with a CLR bath and now they look like new.  It was a huge time savings for us not to have to buy new hinges, measure everything properly and drill all new holes.

Next we're going to polyurethane everything - all the doors, shelves, drawers, interiors and exteriors. We are doing it with the doors on because we wanted to give ourselves a chance to paint over any installation dings (and there were quite a few!) beforehand. The polyurethane is clear so it doesn't matter if it touches the hinges - if anything it will help prevent future rusting.
