Last night was another busy night. My husband came home from work, all the kids that I watch left and we grabbed a bite to eat. The weather was warm, but nice so I decided to take advantage of the nice weather. All of you gals that have been so impatient for me to start my kitchen cabinets can now relax. That is right....... you can relax because my kitchen cabinet re-do is FINALLY underway!! I am so excited and anxious to get them done. That sanding is ALOT of work, but I have to keep reminding myself that it will be worth it when I am done. I have cabinets on the top and bottom so I decided to do all the cabinets on the top first. That means sand them, clean them, paint them and stain them. Once they are completely done then I will move on to the bottom bunch. It is definitely going to take me some time because I have quite a few cabinets and drawers, but it will be worth it in the long run. My Mom gave me my Grandpa's old saw horses when I was there 2 weeks ago so we made a make-do work bench so I could sand my cabinets down. I wanted to be out in the air instead of in the garage so my husband set me up a little area and I started sanding. I have 12 cabinet doors that I have started on that are on the top and then 6 cabinet doors on the bottom along with 7 drawers on the bottom. I am hoping that I can get my remainder of cabinet doors from the top sanded today and then hopefully I can start painting some, but with me leaving for my parents tomorrow morning...... I might just wait til I get home to paint them. We will see and I will be sure to keep you all posted on the progress. Here are a few pictures that I took last night. Here is my little work station.
Here are some of the cabinets that I sanded already. I am just hoping that I sanded them enough. I think that I did - what do you all think? Let me know your thoughts - ok?
I also received my goodie box from Carrie @ Unmatched Socks yesterday. Oh, I received so many wonderful goodies!! I am so excited to get decorating with them however my main concern is to concentrate on these cabinets. Hopefully if I need to come inside and take a little break then I will have enough energy to post some pictures of my decorating. I did find a home already for my little basket and I am pretty sure I know where I am going to put my patriotic stitchery sign and my bench, but I will post pics later on that when I have a moment. Well, I better get off here for now and see if I can get some stuff done around this house of mine. Hope you all have a wonderful extended holiday weekend. Blessings to you all.
