I mentioned that we had fallen off the wagon a little regarding the kitchen cupboard project. But, we're gearing up to sand, prime, and paint another quarter of the cabinets later this month. Really. No kidding. I mean it.
Here are the cabinets on March 10, 2009. You can see we had just started cutting the room in with primer. Good bye Pumpkin Pie!
We're not worrying about the black appliances at this point. Down the road, down the road. Do you like the wall color? It's a grey beige, otherwide known as a "greige". It's "Balanced Beige" from Sherwin Williams.
We were surpised by how much the white paint brought out the vertical lines in the cabinet doors. They wound up with a little bit of an unexpected beachy vibe. Or maybe cottagey? In any case, we liked the effect. Suddenly the cabinets were actually interesting. Oh, and we added new hinges with an oil-rubbed bronze finish. At this point, we aren't adding door pulls. There's a lip on each door that makes it very easy to open them without a pull, and I like the uninterrupted white. We can always change our minds later.
There! See? Just posting this made me want to run downstairs and take the next set of doors off! Too bad it's 10:45pm. When the time comes, though, maybe I'll come back and take a look at these pics again. Nothing is more motivating than progress! :)
Thanks for reading, and thank you soooo much for the recent comments. It's always more fun with company.
