Tossed and Turned Tuesday- Kitchen’s Done!!
This was the easiest project I have ever done…NOT!!!
I honestly don't know what I was thinking. I mean, I get that I wanted some color in my life but I really should have stuck to furniture. It took me 2 weeks to finish this project. Including two weeks of eating around drying doors, cooking around open cabinets, and not to mention looking at an unsightly dining/kitchen every day!
The thing that set me back was the color. At first I wanted a light blue color and when I went to Home Depot, the color I chose looked white in my lighting. I have a photo but it’s on the phone and looks really bad.
So then I chose a darker (light blue) and it came out looking like a bright pastel blue. In order to make lemonade out of lemons, I used this on the little blue humidor I painted this month which Sammy swears is the same color but I beg to differ.
Since I decided to paint one whole section of cabinets and let it dry before I realized it was (again) not the right color, I had more to scrape off. This took the longest time!! I even used paint stripper but it had lots of nooks and crannies so it was very time consuming.
In the long run I worked on this two complete weekends and after work in between. It was the longest project I ever did. But worth it I must say considering I went from this:
OH! I forgot to mention that I tried to be smart and paint them for the third time with the doors attached…DON'T EVER DO THAT!! I had drips galore!
Now that this project is done (even though still not quite the blue I was going for) and my husband "likes it enough", I can finally say this was a project I did myself for days on end and I even drilled those holes for knobs and pulls.
I do love my blue kitchen!!
And of course Kunu got in on the action!
One more thing I forgot to show was besides touch ups here and there I have one teeny weenie problem…
D’oh!! Yeah my planning skills suck. I'm going to have to take this handle off and fill the holes then repaint. Ahh the joy doesn't end.
(please don’t judge my drawer, I dumped everything in then got sidetracked with the handle:)
