    Dang it…. Now I’m sitting here in my recliner looking at the gap over my kitchen cabinets. I just bought a house and I have a notebook full of stuff I need or want to do. Working on the pantry now that’s how I found your channel. I like the way those painted and stained shelves look so I’m doing that. Anyway now this project will be going into the notebook. Keep up the good work. And not to be weird you have a very beautiful smile. Very good projects and good looks is a better reason to subscribe to you over others. Watching some of your other videos keep them coming.

    How long did it take? Can i add moulding to where the cabinets meet the plywood addition? If so do you have any reccomendations?

    It looks great. You can add some decorative plaster or wooden pieces to the extension part, not to have it "too naked". They are inexpensive and will make it look like "that’s the way it was planned from the beginning ".
