Like the bathroom project, although the color isn’t exactly right on shot #1, I do think I like the overall effect on the room.It feels brighter and cleaner than the old honey oak, and I like that.After each door came down, it was labeled by cabinet location These masking tape labels will follow each of the 21 doors through the painting process to keep them all straight. And if I never sand another piece of wood, that would be fine by me!It took about 8 hours of continuous work to sand the 21 doors, 6 drawer fronts, and all of the cabinet frames.
My leftovers from that project are tinted a shade or two of gray deeper.
I didn’t take them all the way down to bare wood unless there was a flaw that needed to be sanded out, mostly I just sanded away the polyurethane and some of the orangey stain.
The laminate end panels just got scratched up a little and cleaned.
