The before and after shots of our master bathroom cabinets - the test run before attempting the much larger job of painting the ones in the kitchen.
After much variable-overlay-hinge searching (they don't make them anymore), hinge spray painting, similar-in-results-size-5-wood-screw searching (they don't make them either or at least they don't have them in hardware stores anymore), much sanding (though not quite enough since there are places the paint didn't adhere as well as I'd like, aka "I will not be using Behr paint for the kitchen project" Principle), and sweating to push/screw those stupid size 6 screws into a size 5 hole with my brute force alone in some pretty tight spaces against the wall (and a manual screwdriver), we now have bathroom cabinets that feel like new! They are wonderful! I absolutely love them!
I have a newfound respect for handymen. And cabinetmakers. And kitchen/bathroom contractors.
Yesterday, Mike and I bought paint for the kitchen project. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't hoping to be approached at the hardware store by some TV remodeling show wishing to help me with my renovation project. This one is going to be a much bigger job. If all goes well, I'm looking at starting to do the sanding on Tuesday after I finish teaching yoga.
