No more paint ever. (Please???)

No really.
I. Never. Want. To. Paint. Again.


Two coats of trim. Note the fridge is moved. The water supply line was long enough to reach over to there after being released from its coil. We taped it down and shut it off, but I wasn't strong enough to get it off the spigot under the sink :o/


Doors for the lower cabinets and drawers. Still debating the wisdom of painting the drawers but they were HORRID. So. They had to be dealt with.


Doors for the uppers drying.


All of the lower cabinet items drying.


The cabinets done and waiting for Angela and I to get cleaned up and get hardware from Home Depot.


Doors all lined up in order of installation. And paint items drying on the ladder.

So... We came home to get showered and head to the store to get hinges. Found the ones that look just like the old ones but in a nickel color. Find hinges. Find magnetic latches. Get one of the door pulls to see how it looks on the doors. (Silver with glass) Get 15 sixteen foot long pieces of shoe moulding. Get that strapped to the top Of the car. Drive home. Comedy of errors getting the LONG pieces of shoe mould bundle into the house. No windows were lost however a few chuckles where had.

We then put the hinges on the cabinets and they don't quite fit. Sigh. Ok. Give up on that one. Move to the door handle. Nope. The hole isn't all the way through the door. Sigh. Ok. Give up on that one. Move to the door in the hallway and they are the wrong size. Yeah, it's time to go on to the house. On that note amid much chuckles and ribbing of each other with "oh NOOOO, we don't need the original to compare sizes, they're all the same".

Hahahaha. Horrible. So we quit and came back to the house to a wonderful dinner with Sally! Always a great dinner with Sally :)

You may or may not be aware that when my kitchen was painted last summer, I did not even lift a finger. Years ago, I threw away my painting clothes and told Mike that I was done. No. More. Painting. For. Me. Either. Welcome to the club, Donna! :-)
