DIY Obsession: kitchen cupboards

So . . . the hubby is home for the summer (thank goodness for school breaks) and so we're trying to get all that needs to get done with the house before he starts school in August.

So we have a list.

A crazy list.

Here's our list of things to finish by the middle of August. . . wish us luck. we'll need it.

1. strip and paint kitchen cabinets

2. finish painting kitchen

3. place hardwood floor in kitchen

4. place new carpet in livingroom area and remove weird looking fireplace mantel

5. finish painting master bedroom and bathroom

6. place hardwood floor in master bedroom and bathroom

7. cut and paint baseboards

8. put up baseboards

oohhh. that's a little daunting.
after finishing this, we start on the backyard.

Here's what the kitchen looked like last week. Right now all the cupboards are off and being worked on. Little Ava has been loving it and has found some new toys and snacks. hmmm.

Check back in a month to see the final reveal . . . of the kitchen, that is.


  1. Hi, I found your blog through Nap Time Crafts blog. I am so glad I did. You have a lot of cool stuff posted. I'm especially interested in your kitchen cabinet redo. We have similiar cupboards and I've been thinking about painting mine too. Good luck with your list :)

  2. Hi Amy,

    I just came across your blog through the Better After blog. I saw your kitchen cabinet posts and was wondering if you ever posted the after photos? I didn't see them. I am itching to paint my cabinets, too! Thanks!
