Stain... Stain... Stain...

We had no idea what we were going to do with our outdated, old, ugly cabinets in our kitchen... So we had the CRAZY idea to sand them all down to the bare bone (not an easy task let me tell you), and restain. It took me 6 hours to sand down 17 cabinet facings, and tonight, me and mike were at the house from ~4:14-10. We also decided to sand our fireplace ledges down because they were so dark, and old, and I figured we mine as well since our whole house is pretty much covered in sawdust... :) Anyway, me and Mike were taking turns with the sander, the goggles, and the filtered mask. The Stain remover and stain are SOOOO POTENT, I actually started getting nauseous toward the end of the night :/    

We will have so much more work to do, but it is encouraging to see a little taste of how gorgeous it will look in the end ;) 
WOW... Night and Day difference
Lil hard worker ;)

Much love, Will keep you updated!!! XOX Bee n' Mike
