Updating 1970s kitchen Older women roulette cams
So, my husband and I had a little problem with our kitchen cupboards. They were kinda really ugly, plus a few of them were missing their trim at the bottom. When I painted the walls, I didn't paint the kitchen front door.
Then I waited several days for the primer to cure before coating them with the semi-gloss white paint.
Two coats of primer with a couple of hours dry time between coats.
On the melamine surfaces (backs of the doors and sides of the cupboards) I primed with a great primer by Glidden called "Gripper".
To say that it was a labor of love is an understatement.
The frame and cabinet bottom were then reattached higher up on the cabinet to provide the needed space.
The old plywood paneling on the walls was removed, and drywall installed and finished.
We kept the original cabinets (can’t beat solid pine!
), but added some trim; changed and/or added hardware; DIY’ed a pendant light; installed tile flooring and a new backsplash; had the counters replaced with a delightful quartz; re-plumbed the kitchen sink (twice); removed the wall oven and cooktop and installed a freestanding range (which included reconfiguring/ creating cabinets); installed a dishwasher; covered up a pocket door; hand-crafted cabinet doors; had to get one dog’s ear stitched up; and a host of other minor projects.
