Prime time

Today we started priming the cabinets. It was pouring rain outdoors, so it seemed like a good day to get started. I didn't talk him into tearing down a wall yet, but I did get him to take out the cabinets over the refrigerator. I didn't have anything in there, couldn't reach them without getting up on a chair. So, outta here! this is where Doug pulled out the cabinets over the refrigerator
Stuffing newspaper over the items
in the cabinets was Doug's solution.
This way, we didn't have to take everything out of the cabinets.

First, we sanded. Then, I scrubbed everything down. Then we started to prime. I probably won't be able to move tomorrow. I hope I can because we are hoping to start painting. I was surprised at how quick we accomplished so much. Unfortunately, the oil primer gave me nausea and a headache, so we went out to dinner.
The cabinets will be cream, the walls celery green.

A very clever use of the Sunday paper I must say!
Cream and celery will be a delightful combo of colors. You're inspiring....I feel a honey do list coming on!
Sigh...that list will be to me, from me, he hee!

Love the newspaper idea - wish my hubby would have done that before he brought in the BELT SANDER! LOL! Looking very nice

What a great job! You will love that new kitchen with cream and celery. I remember when we gutted the kitchen; I just bawled! What a mess and I swear it would've been easier to move. That's why I tell hubby to save some newspapers, you never know what you'll need them for. Way to go with your new kitchen!
