Kitchen Update- Painting Cabinets

This weekend was spent priming and painting our cabinets.  Ick. I forget how much painting cabinets stinks!  Mitch spent Saturday morning sanding, filling holes, and doing more sanding.  I was able to help a little bit between shuttling the kids around.


Then we spent the rest of the afternoon priming.  It took us a good 3 hours to get everything primed.



On Sunday we were able to get our first coat of paint on.  It turns out that this is definitely a two person job so Mitch didn't get anything else accomplished this weekend.  It just seems like it should go so much faster than it does.   We will put a second coat on next weekend.  We are using an oil based paint, which takes forever to dry.  Then Mitch needs to build the drawers so that we can put a countertop down.  I am excited to have more space to spread out.  I might even start moving some things into those cabinets once everything is dry.

They are looking really great! I know painting cabinets takes a while, but in the end you will have a fabulous kitchen with TONS of storage. I envy your storage.
