Ted took an orbital sander to them once they were dry to smooth them out even more (thanks mom and dad).
To create this article, volunteer authors worked to edit and improve it over time. Updating your kitchen can be an arduous, expensive task if you expect to install top-of-the-line appliances and elaborate granite countertops, but you can update your kitchen on a tighter budget just as simply.
