Kelly @ http://www.kellyskornerblog.com/ is starting a home tour and this week is kitchen's! Although my kitchen is nothing spectacular, it does the job intended and gets our bellies full (most nites anyways!). We did a LOT of work to our house when we bought it, the kitchen included. The cabinets had so much grease covering them, we quickly learned that scrubbing them down was not going to work. Therefore, our cabinet doors are sandblasted, that's right, sandblasted! Instead of having a solid, smooth surface, they have a textured feel. Where the softer wood used to be is now recessed and the harder wood stands out. They're really quite neat!
