Re: kitchen & anemone


Thanks Marge.  Yes, the faces are a nice light oak; the cabinets themselves
are whatever.  With just me living here, there isn't a lot of wear and tear.
My only difficulty is that the wood is simply stained and any water that
touches them leaves a lighter discoloration.  I just use Pledge with orange
oil to return them to normal, though so it's not that much of a problem.
