hello people -
I am in SUCH a chipper mood today! We’re having a birthday party for my little man tomorrow and I’m through-the-roof-excited to celebrate him, host our families, and show off some of the improvements we’ve made to the house! I’ve honestly been working quite diligently on the darn kitchen cabinets but they are NOT done and they are not perfect. I’d love to make them perfect – but at the same time – I could probably put in an additional 120 hours on this project and still have more to do…. BUT I think that the rest of my life should take a higher precedence than that.
Sooo, they will be what they’ll be. I’m going to home depot today to pick up the rest of the hardware so the doors can get re-attached to the cupboards and I will DEFINITELY post a picture on Sunday of the prettiness that will be our gorgeous, new, white kitchen. The heat has absolutely killed my productivity because you flat-out can’t paint when it’s 100 degrees outside. SO – this morning – I got up and painted another coat while the little man was still sleeping. (Pretty proud of my normally sleepy self for dragging me-self up to do it… especially since we were up til 12:30ish last night.) I just had time to paint where the cabinets will touch the actual cupboards - in the hopes that this quick 4th coat would finish it up… and so that I could go ahead, break my own rules, not wait for the paint to fully cure, and hang those bad boys up tonight. So – that’s my plan – I really need Pat’s help because it, no kidding, takes a man’s strength to screw it all in together again. Especially since I replaced the hardware so we won’t be using the same holes.
Anyways… since some of you probably think kitchen cabinet painting is less exciting than I do – I’m going to publish some of my goals for the summer. I was inspired to post about this after reading Grace’s post from this morning: Summer To-Do List. I also believe that putting your goals down on paper makes you more likely to accomplish them… and I have to admit that most of these goals are basically about enjoying my life with my wonderful family and friends… and sneaking in some more DIY and home improvement projects that are way MORE fun than painting kitchen cabinets!
So – here it goes: (in rainbow color to be reminiscent of summers past)
