Light oak cabinets are so the 90's. So I am staining them with Java gel. Why I start these projects is beyond me. I wish someone would save me from myself!
I posted this on my Facebook page yesterday. It was day #2 of my project. All the cabinets are washed and lightly sanded and about a third of the them have the first coat of the new stain on. This should take me at least two weeks to complete. This of course means two weeks of major mess and disruption. I am trying my hardest to pace myself because if I keep pushing, I will end up with a mess.
I am trying to "enjoy" the process. That was the advice from my major handy-with-home-decoration neighbor.
My plan is to repaint the kitchen and the bathroom when the cabinets are finished. We shall see how long the steam lasts.
I really have been wanting to update the kitchen in a minor way for some time. And, although I have painted both the kitchen and bath fairly recently, I have never been happy with my color choices.
The wind is howling outside today. I do have to go out later, but right now I am kind of happy to have a project that is keeping me inside but busy.
