My kitchen cabinets. Totally 80's right? They are that laminate, which I know you "can't" paint. Okay, there ya go, you know I'm gonna try anyway.
Went to Home Depot and talked with a guy in the paint department and said that I knew that you couldn't paint laminate, but why? He answered, "Oh, you can. We have paint right over there."
Whoo, hoo. I rushed to see the colors, my mind swirling with ideas already. Found it. It came in bright white and bright white. So I picked the white.
Whew, kitchens are a job! Our first time painting cabinets. It took 3 coats. Please ignore my stuff all around-haven't rearranged yet.
I did say it was our first time right? Well, we had only one mistake. We fixed it before I thought to take a picture-but here it is.
My pantry cabinets-the top ones, we put on backwards. You should've seen me try to jump up to reach the handles. Ha, not a pretty sight. I wonder if I can keep these bright whites all tidy-white? But I do love the look.
"Wash me in your laundry and I'll come out clean, scrub me and I'll have a snow-white life." Psalms 51:7 (MS)
Oh Father, sometimes I feel like I need another white-wash, but it's only surface stuff. Once You've washed my soul for eternity, it's only my exterior that gets the smudges.
God's wash comes in bright white or bright white. :)
I was born in cajun country. I now live in Florida with my husband Mike. My daughter Shelly, and Dan her husband, live close. My son David and his wife, Melissa, along with my three grandchildren live in Virginia. I love them all and thank God I have been so blessed.
I wrote tips for Focus on the Family "Teen Phases" magazine and have a short story in the "God Encounters" anthology. I have a story in the book, "Fighting Fear; Winning the War at Home When Your Soldier Leaves for Battle".
I once kissed, danced and swam with dolphins, and falcons have landed on my arm. Love my English Golden Retriever. I'm a sucker for chocolate and salsa.
