We used a custom local cabinet maker to build our white shaker inset cabinets. I was inspired by jbrodie's kitchen and actually gave my cabinet guy a picture of her kitchen. He had never built inset cabs before.  We used a basic black granite called Black Aracruz. This was a new build. Completed in November 2009.
