So we had no plans of moving, but a great deal popped up that we just had to take, which landed us in a charming little house about a block and a half away from where we were living. We are still renting,which might make this story a tad ridiculous, but as we were moving in, Mr. Hungry decided to redo the kitchen cabinets. I know that sounds crazy to do as a renter, but he has lots of interest in me being happy in the kitchen and to be quite honest we had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. I didn't take the best before photos, but basically you can see that the kitchen cabinets do not close. Apparently, the hinges had been painted over about 5 times and the cabinets would no longer shut. They were pretty dingy too so one late Sunday, Mr. Hungry started scraping away, full of hope and determination.
These cabinets are not just left open... they did not shut.
The culprit of the cabinets not shutting... hinges that have been painted over quite a few times.
Moral of the story: Check for lead paint before tackling a painting project that has anything to do with old paint!
Once again, thank you Mr. Hungry for this amazing kitchen. I promise to make you lots of macaroni and cheese in here.
On top of that, there has been a broken oven, refrigerator and water heater that are now all taken care of. But finally, finally, I'm back with a fully functioning kitchen. I will be back with pics of the new (and not so new features) of the new little kitchen and for goodness sake, I'll get back to the recipes!
