So this has been a slow process but the end is finally in sight! At this point we have replaced the counter-top, sink, faucet, drain for the sink (well technically all the plumbing going to the sink) and hinges. The cabinets are painted grey and all that's left to do is to put the final coat of matt-finish Varathane on the cabinets and oiling the counter-top (a couple of times).
We love the the look of the counter-tops, sink and faucet. And (bonus) we had enough wood leftover from the counter-top to make a BIG cutting board.
