What day is it?
(as Thing 1 would say) Wootness!!
It’s very exciting!!
Here’s what the kitchen looked like before.
The cabinet doors are still off because I’m in the process of waxing them. I’ll paint the base cabinets as quickly as I can. See how much better the island looks painted?
The guys are still here working nearly finished…so these are just “in the process” pics. But stay tuned, y’all.
I’m SO freaking excited!!
One afternoon not too long ago, YBW suggested to me that since we had a bit of extra money it might be time to consider what to do in the kitchen. Let me assure you, he didn’t have to say it twice!
Thus began my search for the perfect countertops.
For a while I was convinced I wanted concrete. I moved past that and re-embraced my love of granite.
We wandered three granite yards to end up here.
It’s called Black Fusion and is quarried from Brazil. And soon coming to a kitchen near me!
So that granite really isn’t going to sit beautifully on the cabinets the way they are now.
So…I decided to paint them!
(don’t mind the messy cabinets, I was too busy painting to tidy them up for a photo)
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint is my new BFFL!
One quart of paint covers 150 square feet.
I’m gonna Rock the Casbah out of these cabinets!
My goal was to have the uppers done before the countertops are installed…but there was a mishap at the fabricators…they only got in one of our two slabs. (Full on ‘Ice Queen Bitch’ mode phone call in which I will negotiate a sink for my trouble about to take place.) But…the bit of delay means I may be able to also finish the lower cabinets before installation!
One more coat of paint and a bit of wax and they’ll be ready for new hardware!
I’m so freaking excited!!
