Kitchen Cabinets at Nanny's house

We have finally finished refinishing the kitchen cabinets at the white house. This is the old cabinets:
We began using stripper on the old doors.
We counted 8 layers of paint on the 14 doors.
After stripping 10 doors, we discovered that a heat gun softened old paint and could be scraped off easily.
A sanded door.
I have a lot of old paint and used some oil-based semi-gloss enamel on the insides of the cabinet frames.
Frank cutting new face for bottom cabinets.
Fitting old doors to new plywood face.
Checking fit.
Painting inside of cabinet doors. ( Note unpainted area for door numbers, will paint after mounting.)
All finished. We are very pleased with results.
