What you see above is a closeup of the doors above the microwave before I started my kitchen painting project. They are still there and they still look the same. However, the doors above the wall oven below which looked just like the ones above, now look much different. I like the stainless hardware compared to the antique brass on the old doors. It gives it a much brighter more modern appearance.
Because I only have so much workbench space, I can only paint a handful of doors at a time. The first batch are painted and hung and I am pleased with the results. I am now on day three of a four day process to paint the second batch. I probably have three more batches left to go.
After I get all the old hardware off, my next project will be to try and sell it. I suspect all those antique brass handles might be worth some money. If not, I'll probably just drop them off at some home recycling store to hopefully make some lucky person very happy. Perhaps even make them as happy as my wife is now with her new looking kitchen.
