Kitchen - Day Three and Four

Day three in our project of painting the kitchen cabinets - consisted of painting the cabinet doors
All of the cabinets were lined up on a ladder that was covered with plastic...and we rubbed on the DeGlosser with a Scotch Brite pad...



Had to make sure to cover our hands as this is very strong and can burn your skin..

Lots of doors...

After two coats of primer and two coats of laquer...


Then we sprayed on the glaze and started wiping it off...


It took forever for the cabinets to dry so we could move through each step..

Day four in our project of painting the kitchen cabinets  - cleaning and painting the hardware.



So many hinges, handles and screws to clean, dry and paint...again -shouldn't have been so time consuming but the spray paint didn't dry very fast.



And our 4 day project ended up to be a 5 day project..still not bad for a project this big.

Here's a sneak look...

It turned out fantastic!

One more thing...I'm going to host a party on Sundays appropriately called...

Cherished Treasures”=

and I hope you'll join me...

Instead of highlighting what you've been working on, you'll highlight a blog that you love and follow, copy, stalk..just simply love, love love....

So won't you please spread the word...aren't you always looking for a great blog?

On Sunday, I'll also be disclosing my first giveaway!

Oh what a fabulous job you are doing and thank you so much for the step by step! I will be showing this to my husband. :o)
Was the deglosser very smelly? I noticed that the garage door was closed. I was just curious if it is something I could do indoors. I have not used it before.
I am doing a little catching up on my blog reading this morning and enjoying my time here at yours.
I look forward to your Sunday Blog Love. You are right, it is always fun reading new blogs. :o)
Have a great day.
Sincerely ~ Tricia

ahhhh I remember those days well! My garage looked just like that. I redid all my doors too. What a job that is! It certainly takes a lot of time and patience, but in the end they look fabulous! Your doors look really amazing. Looking forward to the reveal!

Wow. I'm going to start that whole project in a few weeks, but on the bathroom cabinets instead of the kitchen ones, but still it's a daunting project. I love that glaze you put on them. Can't wait to see the whole thing.

Once again - more great ideas! I love the idea of using the ladder up on saw horses to have a large workspace to put all of the doors on.

Can't wait for the big reveal.

That's some hard work, glad it's paying off with some beautiful cupboards!

Michelle @ Dream Home DIY said...

This is EXACTLY what we want to do with our kitchen cabinets. They turned out gorgeous :0)

Lydia said...

Wow, I just did a double take - this looks so similar to the cabinet painting job we took on last year: http://www.lydiasnextstep.com/2010/01/moms-kitchen-makeover-painting.html

They look great!

Sew Much Ado said...

Wow, they really look amazing, it was definitely worth all the hard work! I love how the turned out, I'd like cabinets exactly like them.

Thanks for linking up to We Did It! Wednesday!

Just curious why you deglazed the doors but not the cabinets? Did this affect how the finish looked afterward?

Looked like huge project, but the end result looks great.

Thanks.
