With everything pre-sanded, fixed, glued and primed, we jumped right into painting today. The Kid wielded the roller and worked on the five pink cabinets, while I got to do the five colors of pink on the drawers. I also, as a side project, painted one cabinet a dark blue – called Midnight Mosaic – and staining, then poly’ing the new wood top.
First, we set up tables and then organized the drawers by their order in the cabinets. Since all but one is going to be painted in the pink ombré style, it would help to keep the drawers organized.
In the other stall of the garage is the antique dresser that we made a replacement top for. The top is being stained while the base cabinet is going to be midnight mosaic blue. I love the way this is turning out.
Here is the dresser primed:
Once again, I started in on most of these projects before acquiring the before photos. I’m going to hunt through my emails to see if I have any from the original CraigsList ads.
Hopefully the final paint and polish will go on these cabinets tomorrow or the day following. I still have to chose hardware for all if as well.
I hear a rumor that it supposed to snow again tonight. Sigh… winter has come with a flourish and I don’t mind telling you that I am not happy about it.
