A few of you have wondered about that, so I thought I’d answer that question in a post.
First off, I’m not really a huge fan of the color of the cabinets…the pinkish-tan thing doesn’t exactly blow my hair back. But the real problem is this:
The cabinets are old enough that the finish on the frequently-used ones is totally worn out. We’re down to bare wood in spots, and in that sort of situation, you really have to refinish the cabinets somehow to make them look decent.
And as you can sort of see in the above photo, the bottoms of the cabinets are pretty chipped and dinged up.
Fortunately, the cabinets are made of wood, not plastic laminate, and so I can sand them, prime them, and paint them, and they should look significantly more fabulous.
So, there you go. Please don’t waste any tears over these cabinets even if you adore wood…they’re really not all that lovely, and I am totally confident that this project will be a net improvement.
Thus endeth my defense of this painting project.
