Are we there yet??

I feel a bit like a kid in the back seat of the car on a long trip....aren't we there YET??  The answer is not yet, but we are getting closer :-D.  Our household goods will arrive next week, we pick up our car Friday (ironically an 8 hour + round trip) and every day in between we have more tasks than hours. We seem to go full tilt each day, but the tyranny of the urgent always being updated. I tend to keep compounding that which has been a VERY bad habit of mine since meeting my super hero husband :-p.  I was given this fab cabinet by a sweet friend in Ft Benning....and we painted it red which was perfect at the time, but in no way will work with our new color pallet.  So....we are stripping it down to paint it white.  In all fairness, the first time we painted it we were also in a time crunch and took a few short cuts, so the finish wasn't ideal.  I have been helping, but wanted to capture Chip in action with my very favorite around the house tool....the heat gun.  Seriously, if you ever want to strip paint it is THE way to go!  I can't wait to see this cutie with a new coat of paint and slipped into the perfect spot.  I will gladly post an updated photo when that is done.
Step 1 remove the red!

Step 2 prime and paint!


  1. So nice to get an update from you! Stripping all that bright red is a big job but I'm sure it will be well worth it. I look forward to seeing it complete! Carry on...all the hard work will be finished soon! :o)

  2. Oh. . .a sneak peak!! Can't wait to see the finished product and more photos of your beautiful new home where the geckos DO NOT roam! Blessings!!
