Kitchen

On Saturday, Sunday and Monday, Stan worked super hard to get these cupboards sanded, primed and painted. I did help him with some of the paint and primer, but the dust from the sanding just chokes me up. I did have a headache all day Sunday which I attributed to the fumes. I guess that is just the cost of change:)
The pictures really do not do them any justice. Last night we went to Home Depot and bought the paint for the walls behind the cupboards.
It is the red I mentioned in the last post. We are thinking we will paint both sides of this wall red. We also bought another color (tester size) for the walls. I painted a portion of one wall, but we are thinking we do not like it. Glad we bought the tester. It was more a gold tone and we really think we want to go with a khaki. I also looked a stoves and microwaves while we were at Home Depot. This white just does not cut it next to the cream and our other black appliances:)
After the paint, which I think we will do this weekend, it is on to the trim (and a new stove) and the kitchen will be done. On the wish list is still tile for the upstairs bathrooms, paint the entire interior, all of the trim outside, and new doors. The interior doors are so thin and cheap. Upgrades are a never ending project......there is always something else to think you absolutely have to do to make it perfect. Like a brand new wooden door for the front entrance, but I do not want to push my luck too far. Might let that one sit on the back burner for a while. Actually my son in law and I have plans for that area so I will just have to save up some money before I broach the subject.

Before you buy an over the stove microwave---I used to have a microwave over my stove. I finally quit buying them after two went out on me. I was boiling water for spaghetti and put something in the microwave at the same time. Too much heat and the microwave was fried! The second time was similar--I forget the actual circumstances!

Also, the fans on the microwaves are weak--they take forever to pull food smells out of the house. And the fan on those microwaves are noisy. I'm much happier with my JennAir quiet fan that I have now.

Congratulations to Stan on his painting marathon! It sure looks great!
