Dave Is My Hero

He has been working so insanely hard at this cabinet project. It's taking so much more work than either of us thought... which is weird because we've painted cabinets before. The funny thing is, the last time we painted cabinets we said, "we're never going to paint cabinets again." Apparently we forgot we said that, and decided to paint anyway.

Our kitchen has been an absolute wreck for the past week, but I'm beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

We bought 34 hinges to replace these beauties. Yes, this is a photo of brass hinges spray-painted silver. Good try guys...

Here's a photo of the light we bought (we actually bought 3) to hang above the countertops. It's the single pendant one in the sort-of middle.

"Let's just say, he is someone worth getting to know" Who knew how prophetic those words would become. You did one of God's very best (I have the other one) (:
