Woo Hoo! (Kitchen)

The cabinet doors (barring any further incidents with trash and heat) are done! They should all be mounted by the end of today and hopefully I'll post a picture later. Then I'll be onto the next portion of my kitchen renovation project.

Trials and Tribulations of painting kitchen cabinets..

  • When painting and it's humid, don't use newspaper to catch extra paint. It sticks to the doors making them have to be sanded and redone.
  • When painting and it's humid, don't stack primed doors on top of each other. They will become one mass of wood, causing them to be sanded and redone.
  • Don't let children walk around painted (and tacky) doors. Trash will get onto the door and have to be removed. If caught quickly enough, they don't have to be redone.
  • Be prepared to sand and repaint/prime doors at any time.
  • Be prepared to console husband because he can't park in the garage due to primed/painted doors.
  • Be prepared to annoy husband so that he gets his part of the kitchen done.
  • Be prepared to be annoyed.
  • Be prepared to ENJOY your kitchen once it's done.
