As I mentioned yesterday, there were a number of to-do items tackled this weekend thanks in large part to my mom and grandmother coming over for a visit last Saturday (a big thanks to them both!). Priming the cabinets (and my ultra-perfectionist streak) has mostly been a one-man job, so I chose a different game plan for how to put them both to work: Granny folded laundry (which was both desperately needed and a chore I find akin to being pecked to death by a duck) while Mom tackled two more of the fifteen wall surfaces in the house that need a coat of Benjamin Moore’s Dove Wing (color matched to Behr paint).
Shame on me for not taking before photos just as she got started, but the results are hard to argue with:
Yep, much better. And that’s two more coats that I don’t have to do, which is pretty damn awesome. Even Charlie seemed to like it (but as usual, was still distracted by the window directly behind me).
And it’s a far cry from where it all began three and a half years ago (ha, the vent & outlet for the wall were off then too!):
Tomorrow, finally, I’ll have enough edited photos of the kitchen to show you what the priming process has been like so far – along with a sneak peek of the new color. Fingers crossed that I can get a couple coats done by the time class starts on Saturday.
How about you? Got any project goals for the week?
