Hey everyone! I've been absent from Blogland for awhile, but you will soon see what has been keeping The Man and I very busy. I am so excited to share this DIY project, but if you are totally insane, you might want to go HERE to see what this kitchen looked like in the beginning and what we did early-on to give it it's first update. If you do read that post, you will see where I made the statement that oak cabinetry was getting such a bad wrap and we liked the look. Ha ha! Well, that was a lie.....not intentionally a lie, but self-protection against all the comments about "orange, build-basic oak cabinets" being so hideous. You see, I truly didn't think we had it in us to do that big of a DIY, but I. WAS. WRONG! So without further ado, here is what we've been up to.
Everyone needs to see a little "before" before they see the "after," right? There are a ton of tutorials about painting cabinets, & I did read several; but we didn't really follow any of them. Except......for several that gave glowing reports about the Benjamin Moore Advance paint. The Man started doing some reading about it and decided that was what we needed to use. He really got on-board with this whole project when he realized it was a perfect excuse to get a new
toy tool -- the Fuji Mini-Mite. He is now completely sold on both the paint and the paint sprayer and is even dreaming up other projects to work on!
Okay, drumroll, please!
I cannot tell you how much I love this change!
