The Kitchen: Day 2

At the end of Day 1 we had purchased our “Cabinet Transformations” kit and cut out the wood above the kitchen sink. Day 2 brought the tedious task of taking off the hardware, drawers & doors and washing them with soapy water. You would not believe the kool-aid, milk and chocolate pudding that was on the cabinets!

The ever helpful Will was right there beside me the whole time. (And I must mention that we also decided it would be a great time to potty train Will. But more on that tomorrow!)At one point in the taking off and cleaning I decided that I didn’t hate the color of my cabinets this much. Ha! I kid, I really don’t like them.

While I was taking off the doors, Bill was double checking how to cut and reattach the crown molding. Again, Will was making sure he did it right.

Bill reattached the crown molding and it looks SO GOOD! It will look even better when they are white. Also, do you notice my new pendant light? We took down the u-g-l-y fixture and put up a pendant light. Just “upgrading” the lighting made the room so much prettier.

And this is how Day 2 ended. Cabinets cleaned and doors removed. We are really glad we did all this before the “babysitters” (Papa & Didi) arrived because it took the better part of a day to get it done. Whew, what a project!
