Painting, Painting, Painting

We finally finished all the sanding.  I painted the insides of the cabinets a bright white enamel; took two days.  Today I begin painting the frames with the primer and then on to the drawers and doors.

I am a little behind my schedule because I kept changing my mind on the cabinet color.  I finally stayed with a sage green color but chose another one.  I am using Behr paint color "Bonsai Pot".  It is a pretty sage green with a bit more blue in it. The color does not come up on their website, but once I get the frame done and a few drawer fronts I will post a photo of it.

For now here are a few pics of the inside of the cabinets and the mess I have in the kitchen.  I have 16 doors to do, both sides, and 8 drawer fronts.

I feel good today and ready to Move Forward, if I may use a line from our President. I am delighted that he was re-elected!

    1. Bonnie, the inside was a cream color, a bit darker than the white and this is now an enamel where the other was a semi-gloss.

      Thank you for stopping by!

  4. Yes, I agree with you. I am thrilled that Obama was re-elected. I have always been a liberal in a very red state. I am surrounded by GOP-ers but that does not matter to me.

    I enjoy your posts and so admire your growing skills-plants that is .

  5. Sounds and looks like a lot of work but it will be pretty when you are finished and fatigued.
