It has been raining, raining, and more raining (not correct grammer but who cares, it's raining) here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest...I've been spending all my time lately on a HUGE project, I am finally painting my kitchen cabinets, finally, after 10 yrs of saying, "I'm gonna paint my kitchen cabinets!" and then Spring comes, gardening begins, and I head outside till November! Then Christmas comes...you get the idea, right?! post signature


Here is the before:

I will continue to post pictures as I go along, it is a long slow process, it takes the paint 24 hrs to dry in between coats, so for each section I am working on it takes around 6 days start to finish. I am sanding the VERY HARD MAPLE doors, and drawers, coating twice with Zinsser Bulls Eye 1, 2, 3 primer, and then Ace Hardware Cabinet paint...very tough stuff, 4 coats. Two years ago, I painted every door, every baseboard, every everything in my house glorious white!

When I finally sit down, here is where I do that with a cup of tea, it is my haven from the rain and dreary leaden skies.

That is a HUGE project and I can't wait to see it all done! You have a "few" things on your plate, so don't be discouraged with the timing of the kitchen cabinets getting painted.
Nice to see a new post! Miss you.
warmly,
