Do any of you prim gals have patience? I often like to say that I do, but my husband begs to differ. We got home from my parents house today and I knew that as soon as I got home, that I wanted to get my first coat of paint on my kitchen cabinet doors. For all of you that asked..... I decided to go with Olde Century Paint (Buttermilk). I saw in a prim store close to me that she had refinished her cabinets with this color and I loved the way they looked so I decided to take the plunge and go for it. Luckily, the weather was very warm today here in Ohio so I was able to get the first coat on the upper cabinet doors. I love the color and the cabinets are really taking shape. I just can't wait for them to be done so I can get everything back in to the original places. I was trying to decide if the cabinets would look ok with my red walls, but I guess I will just have to wait and see when they are all done. If I don't like the way the cabinets look against the red walls then I can always paint the walls and be done with it. Let's just hope the red looks good in the end (lol). I am sure I will be done with painting after it is all said and done. I must admit that I love seeing a transformation. Nothing more rewarding then to have something ugly at the beginning and turn it into something prim and beautiful at the end. Here are a couple pictures that my husband took of me while I was painting. I told him that I wish he wouldn't have taken a picture of me hovering over the cabinet...... I look HUGE!!
Looking good - don't you think? If all goes as planned then hopefully I will have them painted with a second coat tomorrow and then maybe by mid week I will be able to stain them. Isn't this exciting? I just love the color - don't you?
I also wanted to share with you my new crow. This is actually a Dru Ann McCarty creation. Isn't he just too cute? I love how he sits on his perch and he looks great hanging on my wall as you are heading up my stairs to our bedrooms. I ordered a few other items, but I still have yet to take pictures of them. Hopefully I will do that soon and share them with you. It is funny because every single time we head upstairs for bed in the evening or to put Cameron down for his nap, my husband makes a crow sound at the crow. It is hilarious!!
Well, I better run for now. I need to rest up before I have to do some more painting. Stay Tuned for more pictures. I have so many goodies to share with you. Wouldn't ya know it, that I didn't find a whole lot when I went to Amish Country this past weekend with my Mom? I was surprised and so was my Mom. I did get a hypertufa pot and can't wait to plant some flowers in it and I also got a few more bulbs for my little candles that I have here and there in my home and oh I also got one of those tipsy pot kits. I saw it in my Birds & Blooms magazine that I subscribe to and when I saw that they had all the pertinent parts that you needed in this kit in Amish Country.......well, I snatched it up pretty fast! I can't wait to work on that to and share it with all of you. Oh My Goodness, I have so many things to do and so little time (lol). Well, I am signing off for now.
