How to Paint Kitchen Cabinets

Friends, the day is here! I’m FINALLY sharing the rest of cabinet painting projects as well as revealing how it turned out! I'm sorry that it took me awhile to get it posted but thank you for being patient with me!

 As I’ve vented in the past, when we bought our house I was not all that impressed by our kitchen but I knew that with a little TLC we could make it our own.We don’t have a large budget for refinishing the space, so painting the cabinets has been a GREAT way to update the kitchen without paying a high price tag or replacing all the cabinets. It might have taken quite a bit of time, but if done correctly they will save you a lot of money and should last you for years (or so I’ve been told, I’ll let you know if that is true in a year or soJ )

Last Minute Simple Thanksgiving Tablescape Ideas

I think it's safe to say that if you are reading this blog post that you probably appreciate a pretty tablescape for Thanksgiving, but if you're like me, sometimes you might not have the time or desire to create a lavish spread similar to what you might find in a Pottery Barn magazine. That said, with Thanksgiving in 3 days I thought I would round up some last minute simple Thanksgiving tablescape ideas if you're still in need of some last minute inspiration.  Here are some of my favorite:

Spray Painting Pumpkins & How to Keep from Rotting

As a blogger, this Fall I completely failed at decorating and doing DIY projects for this season, but I did manage to squeeze in one!   Last year I did the exact same project of spray painting pumpkins (since I love me some white pumpkins) , but they started to rot rather quickly so I never blogged about them. This year, however,  my pumpkins have lasted 2 months so far and since I consider that a success I thought I would share what I did differently this year.

Painting Kitchen Cabinets Part 2: Priming

Happy Thursday, and welcome back to part 2 of my painting my kitchen cabinet series. Two weeks ago I shared the first part of how I prepped the cabinets, so if you missed it you can read about it here. This past Saturday I headed down to Charlotte, NC for my company's yearly national trade show, so my goal was to finish this project and post about it before I left. I was able to finish the project before I left (can we say Hooray!!!) but due to my hectic work schedule, my blog posts are a little behind. Better late than never, right?! Plus, I promise the result will be worth the wait!   Before I just jump into the final result and the painting process, stay tuned for it early next week, I thought I would quickly share with you the next step after prepping which is priming!
