WIP Wednesday, we meet again! I have to admit, I'm honestly surprised I've found any time this week to get behind the sewing machine...You see it all started with the hubs and I wanting to get new coutertops in the kitchen. And it's sort of snowballed into one of those "while were doing ___________, lets just do _____________". Right. Anyways, this line of thinking ended with us deciding to paint our cabinets. Here's our kitchen before:
Not too bad, but I have despised those builder grade plain old oak cabinets since the day we moved in. Five years ago. Don't get me wrong, there is absolutely nothing wrong with them, they just aren't exactly my style.
The doors have all been removed, and are now inhabiting our garage, while our cars are living in the driveway.
Were not quite ready for a big reveal, but this is the progress we have so far:
I can't believe even with no cabinet doors yet how much brighter the kitchen is! The doors should be reattached Friday with new brushed nickel hardware, and the new courtertops will be going in in the next few weeks, as well as a new over the stove mounted microwave (yay more counterspace!!) and a new backsplash. Whew! I'm just ready for it to be done, and to have my kitchen back :-)
Anyways...back to the matter at hand, whats new in my sewing room...
In between coats of paint this weekend I did manage to finish up this little guy! More on this quilt here.
More on this great pattern here.
Hopefully this week brings a little more sewing time, and less picking paint from under my fingernails! Be sure to head over to Freshly Pieced and add your WIP!

Oooh, those cabinets are going to look so much better! Amazing what a little paint can do. And I'm totally familiar with the "If we're doing X, why not do Y?" line of thinking. LOL. Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday!ReplyDelete

Your kitchen is going to look so great! We did a very similar cabinet transformation when we bought our house two years ago. The painting wasn't much fun but so incredibly worth it.ReplyDelete
