I”m on a roll. After several years of not liking my dark wood cabinets I finally got permission from the hubster to paint them. I just finished painting the laundry room cabinets and am feeling much better. Below are pictures of the before:
I say permission from husband because he lives here too and I want him to be happy with his surroundings. Talking about our design plans and gaining permission is out of loving him and respecting him at the same time. It isn’t that he will or will not LET me do things. We don’t have that kind of relationship. But have been married thirty-two years. And over that amount of time, you do get to really know someone. Hey, he’s still cute and I plan on keeping him around for another thirty-two years. Painting or not painting cabinets will never be a deal breaker. They’re not that important.
With that said, I’ve turned in to a a painting fool and having a ball. (If I had my way, I’d paint the fireplace brick but he’s now wavering on this one — yet; but, I can paint the hearth. More on this later. :))
Now for the reveal:
I’m a happier woman living with these lighter colored cabinets. Doing laundry without having to turn on the light is a treat.
As of today, we’ve painted more than fifty percent of our dark woods (living room, upper kitchen cabinets, and laundry room). I’m through for a while. But next will be the kitchen pantry and/or the living room hearth. I’ll let you know.

Painting is such work but your results look fantastic! I just posted about my laundry room redo as well and we ended up just buying a new cabinet because I didn’t have the patience to take a second hand one and paint it. lol Good on you for tackling that and succeeding! Especially going to a lovely clean white from a dark wood! 🙂
Thank you for your kind comments. Two rooms down, … a few more to do but I’m getting there. I enjoyed your blog. And to answer your questions, yes you are blogging quite well.
My only suggestion would be to delete the comment about not locking your door when you leave the house. We, too, live in a small community that used to have those days of unlocked doors; but, they are fast disappearing. More and more homes are being broken in to. What concerns me is the hostage situation. Please, please don’t give your readers too much information about your activities.
Otherwise, good job on the blog, the home updates, and your new life. I’m looking forward to learning more about your life in the small town. 🙂
Thanks for the tips – I updated the small town post. 🙂
