when cari and eye saw the funky wood panel of the fridge door next to all that gleeming white gel coat we knew it had to go!

Went down to home depot and they cut out several the same size as the original panel. Looks sweet.

Looks nice! Thinking of darkening the woodwork to match it?

Um, I think they went the other direction: took off the dark panel and put on a near-white one.

Mike got it right...
We took the dark wood that you see on the floor to the right of the fridge (it was stock)
And replaced it with a nice textured white face plate from home depot. No more wood-grain miss-match !

and we do like the current stock color/varnish on the cupboards...ads just enough warmth for us with the other wood/earth tones we chose for fabric/curtains/pillows.

heh ok... Another project for the later fall for mine...

but now I have Maxxfan envy. I dont want to add a cover over my fantastic fan since they sit up too high, but like the idea of when (not if lol) it rains and still haveing ventilation.

How thick was the frig. door panel. If it is 1/4" you can install a maple panel and finish to match the rest of the cabinets.

It was two 1/8" sheets.
The maple match sounds nice, might have to look for some.
So you think the stock wood doors on the PL are maple finished marine ply? with maybe a clear varnish? I should ask Cameron sometime.

I would check with PL on wood and finish. I did read where they were now using a water base poly finish. I have had yellowing issues with the regular Minnwax poly on maple and birch. 1/4" sheets of cabinet plywood is not that expensive.
