Finally done!

I have finally finished painting my cabinets. I have a little bit of touch up work here and there, but overall, I am done. Now I think I want to reorganize my cabinets! It never stops......
Anyway, here it is.....






I took the doors off of these cabinets. I kept my "pretty" dishes up here and then would forget about them. Now this way they are seen and if I want to use them, it's not so inconvenient.


I'd like to do the same to these cabinets above the stove and put my cookbooks in there. But there is a exhaust pipe in the cabinets for the fan, which doesn't work anyway. So I am not sure I can convince Nate to help me rip that out. I love the look of open cabinets, however it does make you have to keep them organized!


Last picture. I think I might need to find a red rug or something to pop againt the tile and cabinet color. I guess a week isn't too bad! Painting cabinets is a LOT of work, and I am hoping this is the last time I get the urge to paint them! I've painted them three times since moving down here to this house five years ago! Now I guess I need to find something else to paint......

Those look great Laura. I painted mine white once. I would love to do some painting now but didn't know if I should since I am preggers... but if you can do it, I can do it:)

Congrats Hannah! That is great news. I never paid attention to the no painting suggestion. I always make sure to have enough ventilation and to stop and take a water break every so often. And I did it over time. It took me a week, so it wasn't as intense! Good luck! :)

LAURA! I am soooo impressed! A whole kitchen in a week while being preggo and looking after 3 kids?! Wow.
