If you’re looking for the perfect example of refinishing kitchen cabinets Modesto’s most recent kitchenCRATE is just for you. The transition from dated, yellowed oak cabinets to the rich, cool, exceptionally bright Kelly-Moore Tombstone Gray was astounding. And when combined with new cabinet hardware, rich Toasted Almond quartz countertops, and rectangular glass tile this 2005 kitchen has never looked better!

The Homeowner’s Thoughts on Refinishing Their Modesto Kitchen Cabinets, and More:
What was your favorite part of the kitchenCRATE process?
Our favorite part of the entire process was how simple, fast and stress-free it was. From start to finish the entire process was a pleasant experience.
What was your favorite part about the kitchenCRATE team?
Our favorite part was working with the design team. They are very professional, courteous, and extremely talented.
Was there anything about the process or project that surprised you? If so, what was it?
The most surprising of the process was the amount of detail and planning that went into this project, yet in 8 days we had a new kitchen. The best surprise, however, is that you did what you said you would do. Each and every detail and milestone along the way, happened exactly as you said it would. That rarely happens and we will make sure that everyone knows it! Thank you!!

Day by Day Progress
Here’s how we did it:
Day 1 – Demo Day! On this first day, we set up plastic walls to protect the home from dust, protected the path from the entry door to the kitchen with building paper, and then went to town removing the appliances, countertop, backsplash, plumbing fixtures, cabinet doors, and drawers. To support the cantilever countertop, we reinforced the plywood sub-tops with steel straps. Toward the end of the day, we created the template for the new quartz countertops, which take a few days to fabricate off-site.
Day 2 – The electrical team began the wiring for the new LED undercabinet lighting.
Day 3 – Since all the walls and the ceilings had been protected, our painters began preparing and priming the cabinets. Using a high-grade, oil-based primer, every inch of the kitchen cabinets were caulked, sanded and primed. This is the first (and perhaps most critical) step of creating a durable paint finish.
Day 4 – The painters then began refinishing the kitchen cabinets in this Modesto home and applied two coats of Kelly-Moore Dura-poxy paint in Tombstone Gray to the thoroughly sanded and primed cabinets. This same priming and painting process was used on the doors and drawers, which are painted off-site in a climate-controlled paint booth for the highest possible quality.
Day 5 – The countertop installation team arrived to install the beautiful Blanco Precis Super Single Bowl sink in Truffle and the MSI Toasted Almond quartz countertops with a mitered edge.
Day 6 – The tile backsplash artisans began installing the Bedrosians Manhattan-Madison 4″ x 16″ glass tiles on the backsplash. This was grouted with Laticrete grout.
Day 7 – Lastly, the kitchenCRATE team installed the homeowner’s new appliances. The transformation then hit the home stretch with the installation of the freshly-painted cabinet doors and drawers. The final day of the project included an array of “touch-up” items: all outlets and switches were replaced, the Kohler Simplice faucet and Transitional Design Soap Dispenser each with a Vibrant Stainless finish were installed and the entire project was cleaned, top-to-bottom.
