Kitchen Update #4- Labeling

This is where I left y'all last week with our kitchen reno. The Hubster and The Papa had just finished putting up the pieces to the new custom hood we made. After that I took down the cabinet doors.
This past Saturday I spent all day painting and waxing away. It takes a long time to paint three coats of paint on each door and then apply three layers of wax. It is all well worth it though.
Here is where I am at today. The cabinets themselves are all painted, sanded and waxed. The hood is completed and as you can see I have already started playing around with decorating it. I just could not resist!;) So far this is what I have come up with. The display still needs a little tweaking but I think this may be the winning display at least for now.
I still have 7 cabinet doors to paint and wax. I plan on getting them completed this week so I can move on to the desk area. I can not wait to be done so I can finish painting the walls and making new curtains for the breakfast nook!
If you are thinking about painting your kitchen cabinets a tip that I am sure you have thought about is to label each door so you know exactly where they go. 
A tip from our lesson learned is to also label the hinges! The Hubster and I spent 30 minutes trying to get two of the doors to hang correctly after we put them back up. It finally dawned on us they were not working right because the hinges were not placed back on in the spot they came from. Now I am using a Sharpie to label all the hinges. A true time saver and sanity saver!

  2. It is coming along beautifully. You are much faster than me though. My kitchen cabinet painting cabinet stopped at one coat of wax and the buffing was so tedious that I haven't followed up with additional coats! My bad. Goal: To complete it by the end of April. Blessings to you, Patti

  10. You're so right that the paint job is worth it.

    Your cabinets look amazing, but I'm sure it has been quite the job. I bet your arms are aching from all that waxing.

    The vent hood is gorgeous, and it looks amazing with the clock. Great choice.

  34. I love how this turned out! This is exactly what I've been planning to do in my kitchen... paint my uppers, leave the bases stained. If mine looks half as good as yours when I'm finished, I'll be a happy girl!!

  40. Nice work! Painting cabinets is hard, so I'm in awe of yours. After I painted cabinets and put the hinges back on, the doors wouldn't meet in the middle right. I have no idea why, but had to adjust the hinge placement a bit.. it was a pain! Enjoy your pretty place!
