I’ve finally done it… I’ve bought the paint for the kitchen cabinets. This is finally and actually going to happen, and soon. And yes, I’m doing this while I still have unfinished projects upstairs.
If you’re counting at home, I think this is unfinished project number six. But I really, really want this.
Because despite all of the things I’ve done in this house, I somehow feel like I haven’t done much of anything. I’ve gone from project to project, but never tackled just one room so that I can get to a true before and after. And I need that after a year of home remodeling. I want to see an entire room transformation and look back on my old house tour photos and think, “Wow, I can’t believe it used to look like that!”
And, despite declaring that we are finished with the floors, this is the last room in the house where I need to complete the shoe molding. We chose not to bother until after the paint went in. Speaking of, I’m thinking about a potential snafu. Should I paint the kick plates to match the cabinet paint, or leave them black? And if I leave them black, what color should the shoe molding be (it’s white everywhere else in the house to match the baseboards)? Has anyone else had this dilemma?
