paint test

bye bye, wood grain!

I bought a $2.49 paint sample last night and slapped some on this morning. Love.
Also, notice that the wallpaper behind the cabinet is gone!

My brother-in-law told me I need to prime the cabinets first because this kind of wood could swell when painted, but it is sooo tempting to just go ahead and paint them. Nope, going to be good and do it the right way.

Anyway, a couple steps closer to a kitchen makeover!

Nice! I love the color! Can you get the paint with the primer already in it? My mom has painted walls with that, with good success...not sure if it'd fit the bill with cabinets, though...

Wow, you've been productive! Can't wait to see the end result.

Court-- that sounds like my kind of paint.

What color is that?

I just saw this comment, Heather. In case you are still wondering, it is Valspar Aspen Grey.
