Do you ever get super motivated to get something done? I mean, out of no where, bam! done!
Well, it happens to me sometimes. I always have little lists of projects (some mental, some written down) that may or may not ever get done. Just lists of things that I think would be nice to do--fun projects with the kids, holiday things, house things, yard things, etc. I like lists, what can I say?
Well, painting our bathroom cupboards has been on my mental list for a good long while now. I never actually wrote this one down because I didn't actually want to do it. Not at all.
We painted our kitchen cupboards and while I LOVE the results and it was so worth it, it was also without a doubt the WORST most annoying project I have ever undertaken.
Well, I wised up this time and read about how to do it better, and now I can say that it was so not fun because we did it wrong!
I was looking for a good project to do while my husband was working nights and decided to just read a bit about it. Once I did, I was convinced that was the way to go. Loaded the kiddos up and bought the supplies, then when they were sleeping, I went to town and painted the cupboards.
And most fun of all, it was a surprise for hubby. :) What a great surprise it was too!
Painting the bathroom cupboards was easy and fast.Who knew it, but fellow blogger gals out there where more helpful and accurate than the workers at an un-mentioned big box store, because they certianly led me astray with the kitchen, but Kate,aka Centsational Girl did not lead me astray--what a great tutorial she posted! Seriously, you should check it out--she went all-out on her bathroom redo and it is wonderful.
Anyway, long story short, I did it right this time, and painting the bathroom cupboards was a one-evening job that was inexpensive and super worth it.
And bathroom #2:
So worth it!
I love how the white cupboards make the rooms like bigger, brighter and cleaner. Not to mention not-so-outdated. I mean, they still have along ways to go to be up-to-date and "nice" but wow, the paint has greatly improved them.
And all done in only one evening! ONE I tell you.
Well, I should say one NIGHT, it was so late that it was early by the time I was finished, but whatever. Worth it.
So, got any cupboards in mind you want to paint? Well, read on if you want to know how. :)
