I have discovered it is really hard to be Queen in a household with 3 princesses! Somebody is always borrowing my tiara! Well in between hunting my stuff down I am the proclaimed Queen in the Land of fluff (where my husband swears one day that he will die from glitter lung (you get the picture!) Besides that I am a dieting, exercising, crafting, biblestudying kind of girl.

Kitchen Cabinets Redo-Part 1

Ok I want to be honest with you - You will have to settle on these close up of my cabinets as my "before" pictures because... I thought me and my honey were talking, debating on whether or not to take off the cabinet doors for this refinishing project, and did not know that we had made a decision on it before I went to take a long hot bubble bath the night before we were supposed to start on the kitchen cabinet redo project.
Well imagine my surprise when I dried off from my long comforting bath and walked out to go get a refreshing drink from my kitchen and every door was off!!! So girls I tell you I did what every good blogger would do - I ran and got my camera as I was giving my hubby the evil eye.
So as you can tell we had a "honey colored" oak cabinets in my kitchen. Brent took the cabinets doors off, and took out all the shelves. We wiped down the cabinets with a damp towel, and then roughed them up with some sand paper (notice the dust in the second picture). Once the cabinets had been sanded lightly we wiped them down with a wet towel to remove all the dust.

All I can say "is stay tuned you will not believe your eyes!! This project has turned out amazing!!! and it was amazingly cheap!!! My favorite words!!!" (and yes, we are still on talking terms!)


  1. Ooh -I can't wait to see the finished product!

  2. We desperately need to redo our kitchen cabinets...anxious to see how yours turned out!

  3. I'm impressed that Brent is willing to take these projects on! I recently painted two bathrooms by myself. ;)

  4. congrats! keep up the good work/this is a great presentation.
