So today, friends, I decided I didn't want to post anything bookish. No book reviews or lists or Name That Books (sorry) or books I want to read or anything like that. Today, I decided to show you a little bit of our home improvement. Since we bought our home in March, we've been slowly (very slowly) working on some projects. First was getting in the wood/laminate flooring and then I decided to refinish the kitchen cabinets. Wow, that one took a long time (what with the sanding and the varnishing and the finish on top, oh how naive I was about the time involved). But I'm pretty proud of them, so I thought I'd give you a look at the finished project. Enjoy! I'm sure I'll have something more bookish for you tomorrow :)
This one was back when I had the bottom finished, but hadn't started on the top. Our kitchen looked like this for longer than I wanted...
And those two give you a more complete view of what changes took place (you can see our newer floor too...sort of). Either way, I'm much happier with the color and it goes much better with the counters and the floor. And I'm happiest that the project is done...at least until I want to put some hardware on them :)
Do you like doing home improvement projects yourself or hiring someone to do it for you?
