Sliding Chrome Wire Basket Kitchen Cabinet Organizers

April 4th, 2011 No comments

Distressed Kitchen CabinetsTaking new wood and making it look old is called distressing. Many designers are using distressed wood designs for kitchen cabinets. The creativity level is unending when you are finishing any type of hardwood furniture this way. The process can be applied to oak, maple, cherry, walnut, pine, exotics and just about every wood species you can find to beat on with a hammer.
