A little background: we bought our home 16 plus years ago...we did a mini kitchen redo right away...you know, wallpaper, new vinyl floor etc...then, 10 years ago, we decided to completely gut the 1963 kitchen and remodel...at that time, I LOVED the whole cottage white kitchen look but was afraid that it may be a trend and wanted a timeless look that would be appealing to all for resale. We did the remodel ourselves, ripping out and putting in the new maple cabinets, putting in the hardwood flooring etc. My favorite part of the kitchen has always been the eating area. My hubby built a corner built in and made the wainscot boxes on the walls. (this is the part of the kitchen you always see in my blog).. We decided to stay in this house and for the last couple of years I have considered painting the cabinets, especially after spending summers in the beach house with the white kitchen. And so after way too much thinking and rethinking...we took the plunge...I had a complete anxiety attack the other day...I have painted tons of pieces of furniture, but this was different. We were painting very nice maple cabinets that were fairly new. This is what I will be blogging about for the next few weeks...we are replacing the appliances and counter tops....so far we have sanded, primed and applied the first coat...hoping to get to the next one today...here's a sneak peek of what we've started....wish us luck and help me breathe.....
|Our before photo...I'll show more in a future post once it's done...|
|This was about the time the anxiety attack hit...my poor husband...|
|Why is it that your kitchen cabinets reproduce once they are taken down???|
|They are EVERYWHERE!!!....I just have to remember to breathe and keep on painting..|
please stay tuned and follow along with us on this journey....
