The original kitchen had been revamped just once, in the 1970s, making a gut renovation inevitable. Wikman achieved an amazing custom look by using our paintable DIY shaker doors on Ikea cabinet boxes, keeping her renovation affordable, without sacrificing the quality and style she was looking for.
