Renovation Reality

Does anyone watch the show Renovation Reality?? On HGTV or DIY??  Needless to say, lately I feel like I may be trapped in the "mini series" of the show.  They never seem to finish on time or on budget.  Now I'm seeing a little bit of what they must go through, well except for the TV camera aspect.  Fortunately for me, there is no TV camera... I'm not always looking my best!

Last night we stopped by the Peach Palace to get a couple of items completed.  One was to paint the hinges for the kitchen cabinets... and the screws that went with them.  Five screws for every hinge, two hinges for every door, 35 doors - if my math is correct that is approximately 350 screws.  The best way to paint screws is to poke them into cardboard, my thumb is still sore.  It took quite awhile even with two of us, to poke all those screws into the cardboard.  Of course it only took about fifteen seconds to spray them!

We're gearing up for a FULL day tomorrow, with a long list (of course) of things to get done.  I'm ready.

ENJOY your weekend,
Chris at Red Gate Farm


  1. I like it already....the lighter color looks great! Cannot wait to see the rest...



  2. Loving the cabinets painted white..I have never had good luck doing that...must be a trick to it..

  3. Hi Chris ... So much work now but so worth it in the end! I cannot wait to see the reveal. Good luck on Sunday! ~Hugs~

  4. It's going to look amazing once it's done. What a huge job, but worth it in the end. Can't wait to see the final.

  5. I don't know how you do it, but I'm enjoying watching everything progress!

  6. What a difference! I know you must be exhausted but your reward will be great! I guess like childbirth...painful but forgotten when you get the finished prize!


Please, feel free to leave a comment... it really makes my day! Chris
