The cabinet painting is well underway. This is all but 6 cabinets and these all have a full first round of paint including edging out all the corners and seams. The other 6 are set up in my garage. I have all the edges as well as the top and bottom painted of the upper cabinets on those.
Today, I’ll be doing the first layer of paint on the 6 and, at the very least, the second coat on the ones still in the basement. There are also a whole lot of shelves and support pieces that need to be painted. I’m pretty sure I’ll get close to getting all the cabinets painted today, but all those shelves may take another day to get finished.
Just seeing the white in the room instead of the bare wood has made a huge difference in how the space looks, even with the cabinets out of place. That has been the change I’ve been waiting for and it is everything I’d hoped it would be.
At this pace, I should be able to start installing these by Monday. I’ve got to figure out how to get all of these out of the room so I can finish painting the walls in some places and put down the underlayment first.
They won’t all be able to be installed all the way just yet, though. I’ve got to get the counters stained and mounted before I can get a few of the upper cabinets installed, but I’m so close!
