Project #2

Ok, it's on to project #2 of the summer project series...The first time I saw this kitchen my first thought was..."Man, those cabinets need painted!" They are too dark and old "oakie" for me. Jack thinks painting over wood is not a good thing. Many people (mostly men) feel this way. It's taken me 8 years to finally decide to do it. So I gathered the supplies, emptied my dining room for the space to sand, paint, swear...oh wait, I don't swear.(hehe!) and get my act together. I picked the paint out called...called...wait, I can't remember. It's something about cream. Anyway, it's a paint and primer all in one. So far so good.

Here are the first doors. I started in the corner by the windows because it still gave me time to back out if I didn't like the look.
Here is messy, messy kitchen. Notice the empty shelves to the left of the pic. Man, I hate a messy kitchen and this project will make me crazy by the shear depth of junk in those cupboards and drawers. I still haven't picked out the hardware. So much to choose. Dark? Light? Brushed nickel?...you name it, I get confused by it. Hopefully I'll find something soon because I can't put the drawers back on until I get the handles bought. That was the first fun thing I found out. These drawers and cupboards may be ugly, but they were built well! So wish me luck and I'll post pics every now and then to track progress. Now, where's my paint brush!
