You should have seen me running around trying to prepare for my Tackle it Tuesday post. Yeesh!
Several months ago we painted our kitchen cabinets white.
Now, I do not like painted wood. It is fine in someone else’s house, but not mine.
Painting the kitchen cabinets was, unfortunately, something that had to be done.
The white did not work out well. It stained very quickly and despite supposedly being washable, didn’t wash. For squat!!
Now I am painting them again.
This time it is a much easier color and the paint is “super-washable”. At least, that is what the can says and what we paid extra moolah for. It dang well better be washable!
I am going to confide in ya’ll a little moment I had with the paint. It was a strange moment. The color we choose is brown. It looks just like melted chocolate ice cream. When I was stirring the paint it got the little bubbles in it and looked exactly like melted chocolate ice cream! For just a moment, a fraction of a second, while I was letting the paint drip off of the stirrer, I almost stuck my tongue out to lick it. To lick it! Oh My Word! That is how chocolate-like this stuff looks!!!
So here are the cabinets that are white:
Here is a little of what I have gotten painted:
It is such a huge improvement and I love how it looks. The handles I bought match beautifully and so far the paint is wiping off well. I will work on one section at time until it is all done.
