Well actually not an entire kitchen re-do, it was only painting the cabinets but it feels like an entirely new kitchen.
I was all ready to do the painting myself. I had a schedule of 8 weekends mapped out on what I was going to do each weekend. Then I got a quote from a painter and when they told me it was only going to take 3 days, I knew I had to outsource it.
They sprayed the kitchen so I had to remove everything from all the cabinets. I realized I had way too much kitchen stuff. It was nice to be able to get rid of some items and then reorganize when I was putting it back.
I am amazed how much brighter the kitchen is. When I open the cabinets, it just seems so bright. We should have done this right when we moved in.
Next, hardwood floors....
