Guns and Grit

Aka "sander selfie".

I started a new project this week, which was spurred on by moving around furniture. I'm really hoping gray spray paint will stick to this lightly sanded white paint, because I don't have the guns or grit to fully strip this cabinet that we picked up from the flea market several years ago. It seems the cabinet has been rehabbed at least once before. The current (dirty, chipping and smelly) white is just too punchy for the rest of the room. I took off the doors Monday, sanded Tuesday, and left it sitting in the driveway Wednesday. When it comes to house projects, I don't have the best follow through. The cabinet is old enough that the standard hole spacing for pulls has changed from 2.5" to 3", so I'll likely have to shop around some reuse places or fill and drill holes for new pulls. I'm not sure what to do for the hinges either. Ideally those will will replaced and get new holes since some of the old screws weren't installed straight. Those doors still need sanding as well. 

Dirty paint and pulls have got to go!

Glass doors are off!
