Beautiful White Oak Veneers Transform This 18-Year Old Pantry Cabinet

With a passion for DIY home projects, Jeff had been on a 18 year quest to improve their home. A year ago they began their kitchen project. Their last step was to upgrade the pantry cabinet and that is when they discovered CabinetNow.

After completing their kitchen renovation, he had a vision for how he wanted his pantry doors to look and needed custom cabinets for the custom sizing and precise wood material to match their existing cabinetry.

The DIY Project

Jeff needed to upgrade his pantry cabinet doors to match his existing cabinetry and wanted large, sturdy cabinet doors. He purchased 8 of CabinetNow’s Aries cabinet doors ¾” which is a popular slab style for a sleek aesthetic.

His existing kitchen cabinets were a beautiful white oak so he easily made the decision of choosing our white oak select wood material for a perfect match. When the doors arrived, he added a stain over the oak veneers and finished them with wax.

“They were a precise and perfect match with our existing cabinetry!” 


Jeff's Biggest Challenge

Jeff is a very experienced DIYer. Although, he described his biggest challenge of DIYing this project were the “wonky jambs!”

In this case there are three things that Ideal Home suggest you to do if you are having trouble with having issues with your cabinet doors sitting flush within the cabinet box.

  1. Remove any loose splinters with a putty knife
  2. Use wood filler to fill any unwanted holes or dents
  3. Carefully sand the wood area

With a quick fix, he was able to set the cabinet doors flush in no time.
