(Oh, I said I wasn't going to post any pictures. I guess that's just another example of how I change my mind.)
I went to the paint store and asked a nice man for help. He set me up with everything I needed with full instructions. Very nice of him. I think he may have been on commission though, because the price just bowled me over. I think I paid over fifty dollars for two quarts of paint, one quart of glaze and a small bottle of paint thinner! Does that sound right to you? I brought it home and wasn't sure about testing this on my actual cabinets. I decided to go buy my three year old grandson an unfinished step stool and try the technique on that. I believe I heard him tell Grampy last weekend, that Grammy got black on the red and needs to fix it. This really got me thinking. Did I really want to paint them this way?
At the moment I am considering an ivory with some antiquing. It will really lighten up the room. Well, stay tuned for adventures in my kitchen renovation. At this point I am waiting for my wonderful husband to make me some cabinet doors and a few more cabinets. It may take a little begging to get him to focus back on the kitchen after a long...uh...rest. Yes that's it! It has been a rest!
