Seeing Red and Lots of It

Where have you been Lisa?  I am sure that is what alot of you are wishing you could ask me right now.  Well, my parents closed on their new home on Friday (Thank God) and I have been busy trying to make my Mom’s dreams come true.  Yep, you heard me right, I have been re-finishing her kitchen cabinets and it has been keeping me VERY busy!!  Yesterday I pulled a 10 hour day and today I pulled an 11 hour day so I guess you could say that I have been busy and seeing lots of red.  So, do you all wanna see a little peek?  The cabinets are not done yet and the walls still need to be painted, but things are slowly getting finished.  We hit a few snags today with some other things, but I am confidant that they will get fixed.  Next time I post….. I will have some finished kitchen cabinets to show you.  So, enjoy looking at these and the light fixtures and I will hopefully post some more in about 3-4 days or maybe later.  If I don’t talk to you all before then…..I wish you all a Happy & Blessed Thanksgiving!!

Hope you enjoyed the little peek.  Just a little side not for my Mom ~ Keep your chin up, things will get done before you get moved in and things will be beautiful…… I promise.  I love you!!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

They are just wonderful. Did you sand them first or did you use liquid sand paper?
If I could just convince my dh to let me paint ours....oh I am so dreaming. Dianntha

Sandy said... them!!!

They are a really nice color and look really great. I so can't wait to see them all finished :)

And those light fixtures are perfect. Actually, I can't wait to see the whole house done :)

Question...when you are painting the cupboards, are you just painting? Or are you sanding them with a stain finish? Also exactly what color is that red?

Looking good Lisa, I know your Mom is so glad to have such a great daughter, like you! I love the red, I have been trying to convince myself that I need red walls, or cabinets! My living room in my other house is red, I have red/white checked curtains on
the base cabinets and one red wall in the bedroom...I think I need some here! Some people don't like red, but I sure do! I can't wait to see the house when you get them all moved in! Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

Bear Hugs~Karen

The cabinets look wonderful Lisa!! What a wonderful daughter you are!! I can't wait to see pictures of everything finished.


Linda said...

Hi Lisa.........well I see that the questions I have for you have already been asked. Please when you can, post all of the details of the paint you used and the "How-to" of it all. Can't wait to see the finished product.


They look wonderful!!!! What a super daughter you are!!!! Like everyone else, I would love to hear step by step directions on how you did them (Don't leave anything out...Kind of primer as well as the paint you used, also how you sealed them, ect..HA) as one of our sons just bought a 'fixer-upper' and they would work great on it. THANKS! Hugs, Sher

Love the RED PAINT!~ Can't wait to see it all finished.

Paul said...

More and more people are going with painted kitchen cabinets vs. replacing or staining them. I like to go with an off white or very light shade of brown/tan when painting cabinets.

Willow said...
