Now it looks like this:
New knobs and hinges:
Oh so much better than the dirty outdated brass ones!
We aren’t done yet. This photo shows primer and paint:
Soon those drawers will be painted and they will have their freshly painted doors installed too.
It won’t be too much longer before the floor is tackled. Maybe. Like I said; we work slow.
Happy renovations…big or small…to all you do-it-yourselfers!
I’ll keep ya posted!
The cabinets doors are unhinged (literally, since we are changing the hinges).
Cleaning and lightly sanding:
That’s no super duper cleaner…just diluted Lysol. The sandpaper is a fine grit (220 wet/dry).
I have a love/hate relationship with this stuff. It dries fast, so I’m not so neat and tidy applying it, but it does a wonderful job!
The lazy woman’s way of storing her brushes:
I’m not even trying to clean my brushes. The paint is oil based and hard to clean up. And since I’ve set a goal of painting at least two cabinets a day, and therefore, using my brushes daily, I see no reason to clean them.
My fancy workspace:
My dining table is set with a vinyl picnic table cloth (I use the cloth for fabric painting and dyeing sessions) and kitchen cabinets balanced on paint cans so that I can paint them.
In my next life, I’m going to hire someone to do this job.
I’ll keep ya posted.
