Yesterday after work I got a burst of energy and decided to start painting the living room cupboard – something that’s been on my to do list for a long time! I started by taking the doors off and prepping the frame with blue painters tape. Then I spread contractor’s paper on the floor of the girl cave, set up my painters triangles, and got the doors ready for primer.
All I got done yesterday was one coat of Stix primer on the frame & doors, but it’s progress:
I figure if I do a little each night after work, the cupboard will be done by the weekend and I can move onto something else. I’ll put on one more coat of Stix primer before applying 2 coats of linen white trim paint [all the trim in the condo is painted with it, so it will look nice on the cupboard]. I haven’t decided yet when I’ll paint the inside of the cupboard – that’s a much more labor intensive project. If I do paint the inside, I’ll use the same Calypso Orange as in the kitchen cabinet.
