~ A Little Sneak Peek ~

Just a little sneak peek before the reveal of my white cabinets.  I am very pleased with the change and am anxious to find hardware to add. It has been quite an experience! The first day, Monday, 2 painters came about 10:30 a.m.  One stayed and it was almost 8:00 p.m. when he left. Mind you, everything was wrapped in plastic...could barely get to the bathroom & the refrigerator was wrapped up like a package. He still managed to get paint in areas where it should NOT have been...like all over the mirror in my bathroom. I found lots of places that were not touched or just barely painted. The apt Mgr and the owner of the painting company came over Tuesday morning and inspected all the cabinets.  Then yesterday another painter came and did the touch-ups, etc.  I asked him to leave paint here for me...I knew I would find more areas that the "perfectionist" in me would find lacking. I'm in the midst of a huge clean up, washing all the dishes & crystal, redoing the shelves and putting things away. I've almost climbed Mr. Everest with all the ups (and downs) on the step stool. ;-)  This old body is not accustomed to that.  Just shows I need to be exercising more!



Just had to throw this one in!  It's my little red tree that makes me happy while I'm cleaning ~ :-)


Now, I'm thinking that I'd like to paint the kitchen a different color to enhance the white.  Of course, it will NOT be these painters that do it!

Thanks a million for all of your encouraging words ~ I really appreciate each and every one of you.

Can't wait to see it all, Pat! What an ordeal painting can be. Especially cabinets like yours! But they're going to be so pretty! Nice, clean and fresh. It will be such a nice feeling knowing everything is clean and organized...once it's all done!:)
