With the paint finally dry and cured, we got busy putting the kitchen back together and mounting the cabinets. We used the existing builder's grade cabinets and the same layout, so putting them back up was a breeze. I sanded them down and gave them a coat of Zinsser Bullseye 1-2-3 Primer. Then we mounted a ledger (1x2) to the studs to make the mounting process even easier.

With the cabinets hung and some deep cleaning, this room is finally back to being a kitchen. And not a moment too soon because the little man is back home! We're not completely finished yet, but we're so close. For those of you interested in mounting cabinets in your kitchen, check out The Family Handyman's helpful step-by-step guide.
