Painting the Kitchen ~ Day %$*#!

No really, I'm done painting.  I'm thrilled.  I love it.  But, I'm tired.

I still need to strip the old paint off about half of my hinges.  I googled for ideas on how to do this, and found one where you boil the hinges on your stovetop, in a mixture of water and baking soda.  Works like a charm!  Then, I can put the cupboards back together and start putting my stuff back in the cupboards.

And, hopefully, in the mess, find my (expletive deleted) camera cord.
That's all.  Goodnight.

12 July 2010 Picture Update:

The lighting isn't great in this picture - it all looks a little yellowed.  Please see other pics for a more accurate idea of the colours.  But, here is the finished paint job on the cabinets:

And, getting my furniture in place:

This is such a labour of love Jacki :) It's fun to read up on how you are progressing.
