2.how much $$$ (approx.) did the materials/paint/etc; come out to?
3.would you recommend sanding it down by hand or renting an electric sander from Home Depot/Lowe's? Something this big seems like it'd be a pain to sand by hand.
1. Took about 2 weeks because of the dry time + I did the drawers separately due to space constraints. I also added a clear coat to everything w/Rustoluem crystal clear enamel. You could knock it out in 2 weekends.
2. $100. I think I used 3 cans primer, 8 cans of color for the cabinets, 2 cans of color for drawers, and 4 cans of clear.
3. I used an orbital sander
If I was going to do it again I would try using a roller instead of spray for the cabinets....just to see if I could get better & more even coverage that way.
Thanks for the advice. I hope to get on this project in the near future and will post pictures when I get to it!
