If you follow Practically Spoiled, you’ll see I’m on a mission of complete oak-elimination from my house. (See my gel stained oak banister makeover here  and my painted oak vanity bathroom makeover here )

When we bought our house, the kitchen was partially upgraded: nice new travertine floors, not-my-first choice granite and an “eh” backsplash. But the elephant in the room was the flaming orange, grainy, ugly – yet good condition, solid wood oak cabinets. SIGH.

I agonized for months over exactly what to do with the cabinets (Chalk Paint, Alkyd Paint, Re-staining, Gel Stain, Refacing, Waiting until my husband was out of the house then smashing them to pieces so we’d be forced to get new cabinets … etc.) and finally landed on the no-sanding, prime and paint method.

Adapted for reader’s theater (or readers theatre) by the author, from his picture book published by HarperCollins, New York, 2001

NARRATOR 4:  When he gathered firewood, he hauled twice as much as anyone else in the village. When he hunted, he carried home two antelopes at once.

SHADUSA:   (boastfully, flexing muscles) Just look at these muscles. I must be the strongest man in the world. From now on, just call me Master Man.
