When interior designer Sarah Sherman Samuel posted photos of her kitchen remodel on her blog, her kitchen cabinets – Ikea cabinet bases faced with custom two-tone Shaker doors and copper and brass door pulls – went viral.
"All we did was make her cabinet doors,” says John McDonald, founder of Los Angeles-based Semihandmade. “Sarah painted them, installed the cabinets, styled the room and shot the photos. We still get at least one email a week mentioning it as inspiration.”
Thanks to the positive Internet response, Samuel has designed a new collection of door facades for Semihandmade that are inspired by her Venice kitchen.
The idea is simple: Keep your kitchen, bath or console cabinets and replace them with Samuel’s classic beadboard doors, built by Semihandmade to fit your existing cabinets.
