It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the language and ideas that represented each year.
I wasn’t prepared to spend two full days working and still not open the paint can.
First, I pulled all the hardware off the cabinet doors, the doors off their hinges, and the hinges off the cabinets.
This weekend, I started the cabinet painting project. I learned that the good part about having done a bathroom vanity as a trial round was that I knew how everything would go.
The bad thing was that I thought I knew how it would go when multiplied by many more cabinets!
I wish I could tell you I had some elegant solution for working on 27 pieces, and then drying them, but it mostly involves a few shoe boxes, a table, a chest freezer, two drop clothes, and some patience.
The boxes make it easier to paint the outer edges without drips, smudges, or sticking to the drop cloth, and make for a convenient place to stick the blue masking tape location labels. Progress ended up stopping for the weekend when I kicked the can of primer.
I’m not sure if I can use it, or if it will change the final color.
