Kitchen - Day Two

Day two in our project of painting the kitchen cabinets..today was the day we primed, painted, glazed and sealed the cabinets inside the house.


DH rigged up this exhaust system for the paint fumes...it might not have looked so great but there weren't any fumes or paint dust in the house...


Here's a glimpse of the paint products we used...we did end up getting another paint deglosser.


And the famous HVLP (high volumn low pressure) paint sprayer..



and DH's pride and joy - his air compresser (60 gallons).


DH just started to spray on the primer..

And more priming...


I'm really loving the applique that I picked out as a last minute addition...I think it cost $4...pretty cheap!


And more priming...


And now the laquer is being sprayed on....the crown molding looks like it's always been there!


A bigger look at the cabinets...


Here's my applique - can you tell I'm loving this...

Tomorrow I'll post day three, which we spent painting the cabinet doors...

And I'm also working on another project or maybe I should say projects within the kitchen.
I found this great blog to help me...

Wow! What a big job and it looks like it's going great. We are building a house and have decided on a white kitchen too. Makes the space so light and airy feeling. Can't wait to see yours finished!

I think my kitchen remodel wouldn't have taken two months if we had just taped off everything and sprayed indoors. I did spray the cabinet doors. I did it in the winter and of course we had a month straight in NC where it never got over 40, so it delayed my spraying. I love how its going. I love his painters suit. Did you tape off the whole ceiling? Why type of Gravity Feed Gun is that, how is the overspray? I have a much smaller compresser.

Can't wait to see it finished Great Job!
