The Flip: Day 49

Yesterday was a day full of progress.  When we first arrived to check in, we were greeted by this sight:

The Flip: Day 49

The cabinets were being primed!!! And when we left, we got a glimpse of all of the interior doors being delivered:

Progress, I tell ya!

This morning before work, my mom snuck over there and snapped a few shots of how the flip’s looking right now:

    It’s coming along so quickly. That’s the benefit of hiring contractors rather than doing things yourself.

      You are 100% correct. There are definitely some things we’ve hired people to do that we could either do or learn to do, but we decided that it would make more sense in our situation (i.e., flipping) to pay someone else to do it correctly and quickly rather than rack up months of interest payments, taxes, utilities and property insurance while we went through a serious learning curve. Not everyone would make the same decision, but it works for us and allows us to move onto the next project that much quicker!

    Your kitchen looks amazing. I would like to know what paint/tools you use for painting your kitchen cabinets. My husband and I are going to repaint our oak kitchen cabinets white and we’re not sure what to use. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

      Thanks, Gosia! We hired professional painters to do this job, and I know they used a paint sprayer and oil-based semi-gloss paint. Before they sprayed they removed all of the cabinet doors and drawers so they could be sprayed separately from the cabinet frames. They also primed the cabinets before painting, which would be important in your case so that none of the wood grain bleeds through. I hope this helps!

    Liz – In the first picture it appears as though the painters started painting with some of the doors still attached. What did your hinges look like after they had painted? We are also planning on doing this to our cabinets. We have been practicing on doors and trim building up to the main event of the cabinets. Love what you did and so glad I found your blog . . . better late than never!

      Hey Ramona! You’re right, they did paint some of the cabinetry with the doors still attached. They taped off the hinges and drawer glides, VERY carefully, with painters tape and everything looked great once they took the tape off. One thing to note is that these cabinets had Euro hinges (they look like this that are entirely hidden when the cabinet door is closed. I’m not sure if it would make a difference if you had a different kind of hinge, but I just thought I’d point it out just in case! Hope this helps. :)
