Kitchen Upgrade Status: Paint!

The orange paint is gone and has been replaced with Benjamin Moore's "Revere Pewter"! It's amazing how a different paint color can completely change the look and feel of a room. It's mostly a mess right now, but it's getting there. Sorry if the pic is a little blurry...

In other news, the bottom cabinets are done! It took me about a month to just paint these cabinets (in stages), as there was SO MUCH SANDING involved. Degrease, sand, prime, sand, prime, sand, first coat, sand, then 2nd and final coat. Imagine doing that twice for each door and drawer front and we have 10 lower doors with 7 drawer fronts! I'm exhausted just thinking about it, but the end result is gorgeous.

As you can see, the drywall is off and we are waiting for the electrician to come and re-install the electrical junction box (center) for the range hood and my under cabinet lights! I'm so excited.

After that, it's rehang new drywall, install the new backsplash (pics coming soon), install the range hood ducting, and then build up and paint the upper cabinets. A lot of work, but it will be worth every minute of it when we're done.
