I never would have thought that the house renovation project that would drag on the longest would be painting the metal cabinets for the kitchen. I mean, it's just spray paint, how long could that take? About two years!
I'm not sure it it was because the cabinets were so rusty, or heavy, or if it was because I could only work on them when it was nice weather outside, but I really stretched this project out. But, last Sunday, we finally painted and hung the last of the metal cabinets! Whoop!
It was a nice job to have a on sunny day, despite the toxic paint fumes, since I could play with the chickens while I waited for the coats of paint to dry.
Not only did the last cabinet get painted, but Brandon built a counter for under the cabinet. It's nice plywood with a clear coat painted on it to make it easily washable. There are boards that run along the wall to hold it up on two sides.
The front corner has a leg made from a curtain rod.
We propped the cabinet on top of the new counter so we could test for the perfect position.
And then the cabinet was screwed to the wall. I really have no excuses for leaving boxes of dishes scattered around. It's time to finish putting the kitchen together at last!
