Painting the First Coat on the Cabinets

It feels like our never-ending project, but coat by coat, we're slowly making progress with the kitchen cabinets. Alex's mom, uncle, and friend Kristy lent us a hand as we sanded, vacuumed, and applied the first coat of Behr Ultra Pure White. We only spent 3 hours (compared to the usual 6+ hours), but we were able to cover almost all of the cabinets.


And yes, I crawled on my hands and knees again to reach the back of the cabinets. I know it looks and sounds crazy but here's a reminder of what they used to look like, complete with dirt, grime, and spiderwebs. Pictures don't do it justice.

I didn't take too many pictures because we were busy working. But we're getting to the point where every photo is just getting better, brighter, and whiter. And now that almost all the new appliances are in, the house looks nothing like how it did when we first bought it.
