A few weeks ago I did an honest of review of our kitchen and master bathroom 3 years later (Part 1, 2, 3, 4).
I was overwhelmed by the discussion and comments that the posts generated.
Overwhelmed, but not surprised.
A lot of thought, money, time and energy goes in to a kitchen and bathroom. When elements work it’s great, when they don’t it’s a huge pi$$ off.
Well, well, well…a sweet angel read this post and immediately showed her husband who specializes in inset cabinetry. I made an appointment and he came out (he was even on time and came the same day he said he would…quite a feat for someone in the industry). He told me how he could repair our cabinets as well as how he could refinish and repaint them so they looked better than new. The samples of painted cabinets were amazing. They looked and even felt different to the touch than what I had.
I received quite an education about painted cabinets. Used to be that everyone was in to the glazed looked. Now EVERYONE wants painted cabinets. Problem is many cabinetry companies won’t even do painted cabinets because they’re so hard to get right and be durable. Ryan has spent years perfecting his formula and technique. In fact, you could even run his samples through the dishwasher and they would still come out looking like they did before they went in.
Today he came out and took all my kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors and drawer fronts away to his shop.
They will all be completely sanded down and get a new coat of his special formula paint.
Woot, woot! Oh yeah! Woot, woot! Oh yeah!
Unfortunately, I have to live exposed for the next week.
We went from this:
Need a little motivational jump start to do some spring cleaning and de-cluttering?
Take the doors off your cabinets…that’ll spring you in to action real fast (and make you realize you’re a full fledged hoarder).
Holy cow, someone get me a professional organizer quick!
I have yet to share a “3 years later” review on this bathroom yet but it’s gonna a doozy riddled with an essay full of issues and problems.
Believe me, you’re gonna love reading my rant on that.
I’m even changing the cabinet color. Oh yes, this place will look drastically different when Ryan and I are done with it.
So there ya have it.
Don’t come over for the next week…my house will be in shambles and I’ll be busy donating half of everything in my cabinets. Hopefully.
