This blessed morning...

Guess what I am NOT doing this morning? I am NOT painting cabinet doors. After weeks of spending 1.5 - 2.5 hours every morning painting 6 (SIX!) coats of primer and paint on 20 cabinet doors I am now sitting in my kitchen typing on a computer, sipping coffee while sitting on my awesome window seat. Also, I am NOT staring at my tupperware and canned goods and cleaning supplies. I am staring at lovely white doors. Which, by the way, actually need one more coat of paint - seriously, this is ridiculous.
All I'm saying is that you don't know what you've got until you are living without it. We have a lot of crap in our kitchens. And the scary thing is that we haven't even moved all of kitchen stuff over yet. But staring at it all for weeks makes a person a little bit ashamed.
WhatEVER. I'm done with the most time-consuming, tedious job on the face of the planet! I would really recommend thinking twice about painting cabinets if you value your sanity and/or time. Either don't do it, or hire someone to do it or buy a paint sprayer and become proficient at using it. I will be putting up pictures of kitchen redo when I can get my head above water. So, be looking for them no later then December.
