I’m back with that painting update I promised…the bases are loaded (with paint) as in the base cabinets are painted…yay!
This job took my entire Sunday. I applied two coats of paint to every square inch of the outside of every cabinet. Let’s just say I know them better now than I ever wanted to…but they have never looked better (well they might have in 1962, but I wasn’t there to see them).
Please excuse the lighting…the kitchen gets morning light, but since I leave for work before the sun is up and get home way after the morning light has passed, this was the best I could do without waiting for the weekend to take pictures…
The kitchen looks so minty fresh now…(well it should because I used “lighter mint” on the walls and “mint condition” on the cabinets!)
Notice anything else new in this picture? Perhaps a cute little red microwave?
I can’t resist a cute little red metallic microwave! In fact, this is the second time I have purchased this exact microwave. I bought the first one at our last house when I remodeled the kitchen. When I sold that house, the new owners loved the little red microwave so much, they made it part of the deal so we left it behind. Luckily (thanks to a tip from my Mom) we got this one on sale ($10.99 off this week at Target!). Thanks Mom!
So other than the lack of doors and drawers (that I haven’t started yet) and the huge amount of clutter on the counter tops, the kitchen is looking good!
And….Guess what arrived today Leo…
Ummm, well you are half right Leo…(can’t fool a Border Collie mix, can you?)
Our new range hood arrived already! That was fast!
You can bet I’ll be busy working on the drawers/doors this weekend as well as possibly installing the new range hood. How exciting!
Yay for progress!
