How long is to long

to finish a project? As some of you know I did (began) somewhat of a kitchen makeover beginning last march. I am still working on the cabinets and I don't have anything on the walls yet, but I did finally purchase hardware (thank you e-bay!) As of right this moment I have completely finished 13 out of 32 cabinet doors and 6 out of 11 drawers! My goal is to have it all finished by the time school starts (exactly 14 days from now EEEK). Anyway, here is a pic if the hardware I chose. I don't know why the pictures make them look a little gold, but they are brushed satin nickel.








Just to let you know I do actually finish some projects. My front door needed a makeover so I painted it. Here is a before picture. It actually looks better in this picture than it did in real life! Trust me it was in pretty bad shape.
Here is the color that I chose. Not Chad's favorite, but I think it looks better than it did before I painted it!

I also have a prayer request. My grandfather is having a heart valve replaced and bypass surgery tomorrow at 1:45 so please remember him in your prayers.

Oh I remember putting on kitchen cabinet hardware, I did the measurements and Gregg did the drilling... make Chad help, I'm sure he loves some powertools. BTW the door looks awesome, you did a great job!
