instead of a "big, kitchen turd."
I painted her (matte) Sandstone Cliff by Behr. I asked for flat. But was given matte. Guess they consider it the same. Personally, I don't.
She took one coat of primer, two coats of paint and one coat of satin polycrylic.
Because of her age, I took some sandpaper and slightly roughed her up around the edges. I thought it was appropriate. Hey at our age, aren't we all a little rough around the edges??
I just have to wait for her knobs and bin pulls to arrive (I purchased the same as my kitchen cabinets). She also needs to cure a little longer before I fill her up with "stuff." At the moment she's a bit modest due to her nakedness.
I thought about keeping the top glass doors off, knocking out vertical center strip of wood, wood putty the holes and keep her as a regular ol' hutch. But I was reminded of the dust that accumulates with a wood stove and thought it best to keep the doors on and the dust out. Who knows? Maybe I'll get a bug up my butt and do it in the future.
So that's is. She's (almost) finished.
I'm pretty sure I heard her breathe a sigh of relief when I hung her last cabinet door. ((giggle))
Happy Monday, all!!
It is Monday, right??!! Heck, I'm losing track of time!
