Refacing is a less expensive option than replacing the cabinet doors, though refacing won't work on some cabinets. Double-check the material your cabinet is made of before you decide to reface.

Gracefully lilting S-curve moldings and cabriole legs are hallmarks of French design, rooted in Louis XIV furniture. Here the relaxed S curve shapes the mullioned doors of upper cabinets. Carved cabriole legs support the farmhouse sink as if it were a piece of furniture and help blend it in with the base cabinets. The island boasts characteristic French accents as well: Reeded molding bands the top edge, and the sinuous corner corbels are carved with traditional shells and bell flowers. The island's soft blue paint was sanded, crackled, and glazed with raw umber for an antique patina.
