Wishful thinking? Maybe. There is snow on the ground and it is currently 28 degrees. So, this is what I have been doing while confined to my quarters.
So, I went a little nuts with detail. HeWho has proclaimed it to be too busy. Like a busy little bee? What does he know? I am longing to see my birds and bees. To smell fresh earth as I plant new plants and tend old ones ………
Now that I have finished this, I am painting my kitchen cabinets. I will not post "before" pictures. It is just too ugly and I have put it off for so long, waiting until I "had time". The top cabinet doors are all off and I have painted the handles and hinges.
These are old cabinets I bought from Craigslist. I got a good deal on them and they came with the counter top and hardware. Too many cabinets, as a matter of fact and some are in my sewing room and some in the retail part of the building. I reused some of the cabinets I already had on hand, so the doors don't all match, but when I paint them all it will do fine.
I managed to find enough hinges and handles by taking them from the cabinets in the other rooms to use on the kitchen. They are drying and I have the first coat of paint on the cabinet frame. I sanded one door and painted it and it looks good.
I am only dealing with the upper cabinets right now, as they were the ugliest and saddest looking.
Bright white. Really, that is what the can says. It IS bright white and looks like an ad for teeth whitening. Now I am wondering if I should paint the insides.....
I will have to unload them and then reload them, as opposed to just covering the contents while I paint. But, the insides are dark. A nice coat of white paint would make them look cleaner, wouldn't it? Okay, I have talked myself into it.
Oh, just in case you might be wondering, HeWho is not helping. And, that's the way I like it!
