Weekend Update & WWL 7/19/10

We're busily working on the kitchen and got quite a bit done!

  • Prime and paint upper cabinets. - Haven't committed to a paint color yet and I want to paint it all at the same time.
  • Repair, sand and prime kitchen walls. - We ran out of steam before we got to priming.
  • Purchase new counters! - Tomorrow or Tues (although the website says everyone is out. :( )
  • Replace light switches and outlets in kitchen. - Waiting until after we paint.
Man...what DID we do?
  • Sand all cabinet doors, begin patching all old handle holes.
  • Sand all remaining built-in cabinets, fill all holes.
  • Double prime 6 out of the 13 doors.
  • Remove all the nasty contact paper.
  • Cut a mini-sized version of our future pass through!

    Sneak Preview for ya - Have super cute pics of the felines discovering the hole that I'll share later.

  • Buy all the tile for our guest bathroom renovation at Community Forklift at a major discount!!
  • Buy the tile for the mini-backsplash I'm going to do in the kitchen for $9!
Goals - Keeping the list pretty reasonable:
  • Prime all cabinets and cabinet doors.
  • Paint walls.
  • Order hardware.
What we learned:
  1. Community Forklift has BAD ventilation - the section by the tiles was like an inferno.
  2. Be careful around exposed outlets when working with metal tools! Don't mess with electricity - it'll win every time!
  3. Moshe likes having the cabinets empty.

  4. All contact paper sucks.
  5. Deer like hostas...grrr... X-(

Jason says cut the whole wall out and just have a corner post. Make it all open.
