Kitchen Cabinets

Well it was a long time coming, and I'm glad to say our kitchen cabinets are finally finished! I won't tell you when they were started haha, but I will say major projects get put to a stop when a new baby has just arrived. That's the way it should be too ;) Any way my husband did it again! He is so amazing and continues to make this house beautiful with his awesome workmanship and talents. I love him so much! When we bought this house I knew right away when I saw the kitchen that the cabinets would have to be painted. We knew it was going to be a lot of work. Right around the time when Adam was sanding everything was the worse of it though. UGH! The sawdust got EVERYWHERE! No matter how hard we tried to partition that room from the rest of the house. It had to be sanded though. We tried the non-sanding strip the wood method and it didn't work. These cabinets were so covered in grease and stuff from the years that sanding was the only way. Once that part was over though, the painting was relatively easy. And Adam got to add to his collection of tools like always :) A paint gun is definitely the way to go.

These are a couple of before pictures. Just so gross. I was so sensitive to smells in my first trimester of pregnancy I couldn't step foot in the kitchen because I was pretty sure I could smell these suckers.
This is when everything was all sanded down. And that haziness in the picture...yeah that would be the lovely sawdust.
Almost done!!
Minus the knobs that we are putting on tonight, it's completely done! Major thanks to my awesome husband who did this all by himself. The pictures definitely don't do them justice.
