Home Improvement: Painting Our Kitchen Cabinets, Part 2 of 3

I posted about painting my kitchen cabinets back in November.

And I had planned to paint them in December.

I really had good intentions.

But then life got in the way.

Better late than never, I started attacking them this past weekend.

The change (in my mind anyway) is huge already, and I have not even opened a paint can.

I removed the knick-knack display shelves on either side of the sink and the one awkward cabinet to the left of the sink.

I am going to replace the cabinet with three floating shelves for drinking glasses, plates and cereal bowls.

Here is the progress so far:

I can’t believe how much more natural light fills the room already.

When I started applying the paint I started freaking out a little…or a lot.

But since I did a practice run on an old cabinet the night before, I knew what to expect sort of.

Of course, once it dried it looked tons better.

And now I feel confident I didn’t just ruin our kitchen cabinets.

I hope to knock out the whole project in a few weeks.

I CAN’T WAIT FOR A TRANSFORMED KITCHEN.

And in case you were wondering what my husband was doing while I was taking down wall cabinets…

he was trying out his new chainsaw by cutting down some halfway fallen trees in our back yard.

  1. Isn’t that just like men…they find the most “inopportune time” to do the things that’s been waiting for a year once you start a major home renovation! Do they even have a brain?? My Mom used to say “the only reason women needed men was for reproduction!” So true Mom! R.I.P.
