Now that I have made the decision to sell my house it is time to fix it up and make it appealing to today’s market. One of the first things I realized and know from being a Realtor is that my kitchen needed some help. OK, I’ll be honest, it needed a lot of help. I hadn’t done anything to the kitchen since I bought it other than clean it up drastically and talk about how I was going to make it my dream kitchen. In 3 years, I did nothing to it other than keep it clean and update some appliances. It was a huge project and huge projects overwhelm me before I even start them.
From the picture you might be thinking, “Hmmm, that’s not that bad.” Well, what you can’t see from the picture is that the previous owner did not use the same white on all of the cabinets as well as they were smokers so there was an everlasting yellow huegh that I was able to mask by hours of scrubbing and dozens of magic erasers. But still, if you looked just right, it was still there. Or maybe it was just me because I knew it was there. Regardless, there was no doubt in my mind these cabinets needed to be redone. Now my first obstacle with this was I didn’t want to stick a lot of money in to the home I was going to be getting rid of and I wanted to save as much money as I could for my RV and my new life. So, Google again became my best friend.
After looking through dozens of forums I came across what would be the perfect solution. I didn’t want to have to strip my cabinets and do a lot of sanding. I needed something that would allow me to paint over the current paint and make my resurfacing easy and painless. General Finishes Milk Paint would allow me to refinish my cabinets without spending a lot of money or having to do a lot of work. This is what I thought when I purchased the products to get started and I still believe it to be true for someone who isn’t incredibly anal or doesn’t have cabinet faces that are covered with bad paint and runs.
