But by golly, I got SICK of looking at our kitchen!!! You see, we have this fake, plasticy covering on the cabinets. And with as much as all the drawers and cabinets get used, they started peeling off. See below.
Well, regardless how long we stay in this house, it needed to be dealt with.
And let's face it....I needed a project.
Robert said he could get me a heat gun and start taking them down this weekend. Well, I thought to myself...."I have a heat gun. I just call it a hairdryer!" And went to town about 2 days earlier than we planned!
Really, if I hadn't have gotten the ball rolling, who know how much longer we would have sat looking at it!!!
Here's what it looks like now! ;-) Still in need of sanding...and then paint of course.
Please ignore random toaster on top of cabinets, nasty toaster oven on counter, crazy rigged light over sink, ugly, multicolored floor mat, and baby that was SUPPOSED to be napping! Mmmk...thanks!
Look at this gross stuff! I can't believe we left it on as long as we did!!!
My cute little helper!!! Who clung to my leg whenever the hairdryer was on. Then reached for the knives! Seriously, there are way more forks and spoons to grab...why the knife?
So here is my question for YOU GUYS!!!
What color paint!?!?!?!?!
The counter tops are blue. And we ain't replacing those....right now at least, so we have to work with those. And the floors are dark. There is so little natural light in this house already, that I hate to go too dark in the kitchen! We need it as bright as possible.
On the other hand, super light colors show every.single.little. finger print and grim!
Sooo....any thoughts much appreciated! Oh, and hardware suggestions too! I'm not good at this stuff AT ALL!!!
