It's a Twinderful Life

Looking For the Silver Lining in All of Life's Clouds

For those about to rock, we salute you!

on June 21, 2012

And boy did we get our rock on last night (thanks AC/DC). We completed Phase 1 of our “Repaint the kitchen cabinets so that we can sell this place” project, and we did a fine job if I do say so myself. Here’s a Phase 1 breakdown for you:

  • Remove all cabinet doors and hardware
  • Sand said cabinet doors and remaining cabinature (is that even a word? It is now…)
  • Wipe down everything (as you can see from the forthcoming pics we had lost our steam at this point (a.k.a. I was in an extremely irritable mood and just wanted to go lay down with my pups in bed and my husband is a saint and said we could do it on Friday)

Phase 2 commences tonight with a trip to IKEA with Bre for some cabinet organizers, paper, etc. I’m not really sure that shopping at one of my favorite stores should be considered a “project phase,” but to make me feel better and more productive we’re going to call it that.

Phase 3 will start on Friday night after work and includes going to Lowe’s for the primer, paint, and supplies, and putting the first coat of primer on. We’re going with a beautifully clean and room-opening white.

Phase 4 kicks off on Saturday morning when Bre comes over and helps us apply the coats of paint (Miah would come but he’ll be representing at a Youth Conference). We’re hoping it only needs one or two coats because the primer has represented done its job).

Phase 5 – A BBQ celebration up the canyon with BreMiah and a few other friends.

Phase 6 – After the cabinets have dried we put everything back in the cabinets, rehang the cabinet doors, and sit down to sip a cool glass of lemonade.

And there you have it, our Project Outline as well as our weekend schedule. I’ll be excited when it’s all done. šŸ™‚

Here’s one side of the kitchen

And the other side (not sure why this pic is so blurry…hmmm…)

And, just for good measure, my cute little Porsche pup, ready for bed (like her mommy)

BTW if you want even more random pics of what’s up around here make sure to follow us on Instagram. Bre’s username is twinderfullife and mine is braqmoore. Enjoy!

What are your weekend plans? Any fun projects going on around your place? How about eating delicious BBQ ribs with friends? We’d love to hear all about it!

    Just an FYI, if you haven’t been to IKEA lately it is under some intense renovations. Only 1/3 of the bottom floor was open. So I’m not sure all of their stuff is accessible. Luckily, what we went for was in the self-select warehouse at the end. PS-lookin good!
