Kitchen Reno Contiuned

So we have ordered the cabinet that is going under the microwave and was suppose to be delivered next week, but we just got a call that it will be delayed another two weeks... That is bad news because we ordered our counter tops and it's supposed to be here in a week. So we can't install the counter top without the cabinet. So I decided that now would be a good time to paint the walls, ceiling, trim, and put a fresh coat on the cabinets to freshen them up.

Preparing for painting mayhem.

 This is a really amazing paint.   It had a melamine finish which looks amazing on cabinets. We had previously painted our cabinets with and oil based paint and as some may know they are not making oil paint anymore. So we were scared that we were going to have to sand all of these cabinets back to the wood :( BUT we found out about this paint and all you have to do is roughen the surface and start painting. It turned out amazing!

 Notice anything different? New stove maybe? We got that stove from Kijiji (where else?) for $800.00. Its really nice and it is hard to find a stove without a back on it that is affordable, but we did!

 The paint on the walls are a very light grey from C.I.L called Silver Quill. It really lightens up the whole kitchen and it looks amazing with the tile we chose for the back splash and the flooring. So exciting!

So next on the list is installing the cabinet (that is on back order) then paint the new cabinet white, then we can install the counter top. Also somewhere in there we need to purchase new light fixture, pot lights for above the sink, new switch covers, new faucet, etc.
