Ready, Set, Paint!

November 14th, 2011

One of the joys of building your own cabinets is the tedious task of painting them. However by the time you get to the point that they are ready to paint, you are so excited that the painting hardly seems like a chore (especially when your husband does most of the work).

It’s been so exciting to see the other half of the kitchen come together. We finally got the very last details finished — the crown moulding, the baseboards, the edging strips where the cabinets meet the walls etc. Its been a long and tedious journey, but the build and install are complete!

I got to help out by being moral support, by taping along the floors and insides of the cabinet with my trusty frog tape, and also the elite task of puttying nail holes.  So here it is in all its pre-finished glory, just waiting to be painted white:

I love our corbels, I actually have a great story (and photos) to share about those!

And here you can see the crazy mess we’ve been living in while Mr. Project has been installing the cabinets. Trust me, it’s not fun to live in a crazy kitchen.

So there ya go! I’ll show you pics of the painted kitchen tomorrow!
