Kitchen 2013: White On

When it comes to my slow-going kitchen reno, there are certain moments where it feels like I’m actually progressing from one step to the other.  Sure, a second coat feels good to share, but it’s hard to beat a transition that involves two completely different colors.

As always, I was hoping I’d be further along by now with the paint, but I’ve yet to give up and walk away.  So, there’s that.  And I’m finally at a MAJOR turning point:  prepping the upper cabinets for their new paint job.  It’s a lot like the first time around with the lower cabinets, but without the learning curve.  And more than likely, without a third coat (since the primer will be white, I’m assuming the second coat will be sufficient for the upper cabinets whereas I needed a third for the dark gray to cover everything on the lower section).

It shouldn’t feel like a big deal, but it does to me.  At some point later this week (crossing my fingers), the last of the orange-y oak will be gone forever.  Banished.  Shunned.  And a happier homeowner will stay relatively satisfied in her progress.

For about a week.  This is ongoing DIY, after all.
