That’s right, I got this wild hair this past weekend and decided to paint my kitchen cabinets! This has been on my to-do list for two years! I actually bought most of my supplies a couple of months ago and had psyched myself up for it when we got snow. I knew I would need to open the windows while working in here, so I was waiting for the perfect time. The stars aligned at the end of last week and I decided to dive right in!
Today I thought I’d share some of the chaos. 🙂
Here is how my kitchen started:
I snapped this picture just as I was getting started labeling my cabinets. I had already removed the hardware. It doesn’t feel outdated to me, just dark…dark cabinets, dark counter tops, dark tile, and dark floor (hardwoods or laminate are next on my list!).
Our kitchen doesn’t get a lot of natural light, so I really wanted to lighten things up.
I removed all the doors:
I covered my surfaces:
Found room in my overflowing garage for 17 cabinet doors:
Piled a bunch of stuff in my dining room:
Doesn’t look so messy, right?
Here’s a picture of me cleaning. Just what you’ve always wanted to see.
Primer going on…
Remember how my dining room didn’t look that bad? It was only a matter of time.
But, hey! We’ve got paint!
I am so thrilled with my progress. I started Friday and here are my cabinet doors as of tonight:
We still found time to squeeze in a little of this:
And some of this:
I’ve still got several projects to complete before I can call it done. Just thought I’d share some in progress pictures for now.
I’ll be working furiously, so you might not hear from me until Friday. I’ll be back with my Get Your DIY on Project. The theme for June (can you even believe it’s almost June already?!) is “Knock-off Projects”. Our party opens at 7:00 EST on Sunday, where you can share your knock-offs too, or just come by to get inspired!
A certain super comfy bed is calling this achy girl’s name!
