I'm not much of a God person, but I am screaming "Halleluja!" tonight. The cabinets are painted. Yessirree! Those cabinets have the final coat of paint. I never, ever thought I would see this day. Granted, we have to let the paint cure so we can't move in for another week or so, but the end is in sight. I'm going to start hauling all of our kitchen items up from the basement and wash them this week. I can't wait!
It's been five months - FIVE MONTHS - since we started this project. It's far from over, but at least we don't have to store our dishes, spices, food, cookware, etc. in the living room any more. And I can be thankful for the small things.
