Yesterday was the day to get the kitchen cupboards finished up. We really liked the style that glazed paint gives and after pricing new doors and drawers since the cupboards themselves seem to be good quality, we decided that we just didn't want to spend $2,000 for a new style. So, I set out to figure out another way and after attempting that new way myself, I asked for help. What I did wasn't bad, but it needed a little more and I wasn't sure how to do it exactly, so our good friends the Parks, came to lend a hand with some fixing and painting. Supplies to accomplish the cupboards and island ended up costing about $100 which included paint and painting supplies and new hardware. Much cheaper than $2,000.00!
Carie started right away on the doors adding the glaze to make them look like we had hoped for. And Sang got to work on the island that we wanted to be dark gray and WOW, we love how it turned out as well. I have no pictures of the kitchen finalized since we were letting everything dry good before too much handling, but eventually you'll see it all put back together.
Our other set of helpers were the Arseneaus. Pat gave us good advice on the painting and then worked at painting closets to get them freshened up. We were hoping to get the mudroom painted but thought that was too lofty. After Liz washed down all the walls in there, and Sang finished his jobs, we thought we might as well get the painting started in there too.
