    HI Sara - It took me a few years of living with oak cabinets that I didn't like to get the energy to paint them. It took me 3 weeks to paint everything, but the time involved was so worth it. If you are thinking of painting your cabinets - go for it!

    Thanks Diane, I would like to redo my kitchen cabinets after I return from vacation. Thanks for the info about the framing of the cabinets & the gripper base for the paint. Wish me luck!

    Inspirational as I have similar layout and planning a complete re-do including a window seat like you have. Thinking of making an island instead of L shaped counter that cuts the room into. How wide is your kitchen, Diane H?

  • Karen Rossman Clark Brookings, OR
    Whahoo! Mine is 22 long and 14 wide! The layout is almost exactly what you have. I am cutting a piece of 26" x 62" butcher paper or tape the space off and put it in place to see how I can move around it. I am so dern visual that I have to almost chew up
