Weekend #5 – Hooray, the Cabinets are DONE!

Finally, the cabinets are done!! 

We hung the cabinet doors back on the cabinets.  =)  I still have to pick out the knobs and handles for these doors and drawers. 

Here’s the Before:

Here’s the After:

So, after all this has been said and done, we learned why it was so important to get all the grease off the cabinets.  At first, we thought it was just because the paint needs a clean surface to stick to, to prevent chipping and peeling, etc.  As we were examining the doors, we discovered that the residual grease that we had missed has bled through the paint.  Tried as we may with the degreaser, deglosser, and the sanding, we were unable to get all  the grease off the doors.  The hardest areas were the grooves and edges.  Luckily, they’re not too noticeable.  Overall, this was a great makeover, don’t you think?
