Ever since we moved into our farmhouse, I have wanted to paint the wood trim and doors in the kitchen.
Whomever stripped the wood before, didn’t do a very good job. They left the wood raw and untreated.
So the other night after I had put the kids to bed, I was sitting in the kitchen, just kind of looking around. I’ve been thinking about a white kitchen for a long time, and after poking around on Pinterest, I thought to myself, “I’m gonna do it.”
The next day, I waited for Sean to go to work, and I broke out the paint and supplies, and got to work.
And for a job that I didn’t think would take too long, is now on day 4 and I’m only half way through.
A light sand throughout and thorough cleaning of the wood, plus filling in the cracks with caulk. Top that off with 3 to 4 coats of paint, and all that equals time.
But time well spent. My white kitchen is looking great. I’m happy with the brightness, how clean white looks, and too, the simplicity of white.
I plan to paint the bottom cabinets a light gray – in fact everything that was painted the sage green will now be gray. Benjamin Moore Stonington Gray to be exact.
I’m off to paint some more.
To be continued…..
