Last week I shared with you that we are FINALLY painting our kitchen cabinets white! Wahoo!!! I painted our peninsula awhile back using Rustoleum’s Cabinet Transformations in Pure White (minus the glaze) and that sort of sealed the deal for me. No more brown kitchen cabinets!
I know how to paint furniture and cabinets and have studied the art of cabinet painting for a few years now. I wrote a post entitled Recommended Paint Tips for Painting Kitchen Cabinets which gives you top recommendations on the best paint sprayers, best primers, and best paints to use when painting cabinets. It also gives you links to several step-by-step posts on how to paint cabinets. If you need even MORE resources on how to paint your cabinets, there are no shortage of tips to be found on Pinterest.
So…I’m a bit embarrassed to admit this but….
…Okay, no chocolate or ice cream bribes were involved, but I’m just going to come out and say it. I caved under the pressure and contracted the work out. I hired someone else to finish painting my kitchen cabinets.
GASP! Blasphemy!! And you call yourself a DIY’er!!!
Sigh. I know…I know. I could have saved myself a ton of money by doing the work myself. But in this case painting my kitchen doors 12 hours a day, by myself in my spider-infested basement, for a week (or two?) just didn’t at all appeal to me. Sometimes choosing to instead spend your time with your kids on their last few weeks of summer vacation is the best decision. I’m at peace with the decision and ecstatic to soon have a Benjamin Moore White Dove kitchen. (And I don’t have to paint for 12 hours a day!)
