The Partner finally came back from his vacation in Puerto Rico and while I am quite happy he is home safe and sound, I am secretly relieved that he brought back the “good camera” in one piece. Now armed with a camera that would not give you all the illusion that I have painted my kitchen lilac……
I still don’t understand why my old point-n-shoot makes my kitchen look like a room in Prince’s house. In any case, here is the freshly painted pantry….
The color I finally selected was Plumage from the Martha Stewart paint collection at Home Depot. I tried several different paint colors but none of them quite hit the balance of intense color without being “bright”. I was quite pleased with the color but have to admit that the paint was a tad thin in my opinion. Has anyone else had this issue?
After painting the back of the shelves and letting them dry overnight, I had fun rearranging all my glassware back on the shelves along with some other treasures I had kept hidden in my cabinets.
The white and blue opaline glassware is my favorite. I am addicted to eBay because of these pieces, but they are so expensive when they come up. Fortunately, the pieces I have acquired were amazing deals. If anyone knows of an online dealer who has four more of the sherry glasses, let me know!
Okay, one more shot before we leave…..
I have said it before and I will say it again, I am amazed by what a little paint can do……
