1. You rock!
    What a great job. I’d be totally insane 25% of the way through (or divorced).
    Did you have a garage in which to work?

    1. Haha, if we’d work together on these projects we’d be divorced too. And yes I have a tinny garage to work in and my husband complains that he has to remove his motorcycle when I paint 🙂

    I recently became aware of your blog via Cuckoo 4 cats. What an informative post. Can’t wait to build an outdoor project/two. I signed up to your blog and eagerly look forward to new posts. Today’s post ’16 painting tips and tricks for kitchen cabinets’ was incredible. Of course, you are aware of all the information available via the internet. For me, this will be my go-to bible. The straight forward narrative, tips, photos, resources are and will be so helpful. I now feel ready to tackle painting my kitchen cabinets.
    I’m having a fun time reviewing all posts. Keep up the good job. Thank you!

    1. Well, thanks so much for reading Marilyn!

    Amazing tips! I love that you’re so thoughtful and detailed when it comes to painting the kitchen cabinets.

That’s precisely how your kitchen looks like after this painting project. Thanks for sharing this, it was much-needed!

  8. I just found your blog the other day and I have been devouring it! You are fabulous — I love your style and your authenticity. I am going to tackle my laminate kitchen cupboards this summer I think. Love your tips — thank you!

    Very well structured blog! I’m so glad you mentioned about knowing what material you are painting on. I’ve been working for the Handy Squad decorating for a while and I cannot stress the importance of knowing what material you are looking to paint. Good post! Luke

    This is extremely helpful – I came from your other post about peeling laminate rather than painting over it and I plan to explore this further. My question is that seems doable for the doors/drawers but what about the cabinetry itself? Did you paint directly over laminate once you removed the doors/drawers? If so did you sand it down?

    1. Hi Alyssa, my cabinet frame actually never had laminate on it. I’m not sure if that is a standard thing or if it’s like that just for ours. I guess, if they had laminate on them then I would have peeled that off as well. Hope that helps and good luck.
