It's all coming back to me now.
For an indecisive person choosing a paint color can be overwhelming.
You'd think picking a creamy white a few shades lighter than the current color
of our kitchen cabinets would be a simple process, but not for me.
On the paint chip, Acadia White looked like the perfect color.
Can you see where I brushed the paint on the cabinet panel?
It looks nothing like the paint chip. In fact it looks like basic white!
We've got bisque appliances, so I want the cabinet color to be a similar hue.
At $25 a pop for Ben Moore Impervo cabinet paint, I don't want to make another mistake,
so I'm going to purchase a few sample pints and play around with them until I find a color
that I'm happy with from the early morning light through evening when the lights are on.
It could take me months, possibly years. :o)
As you can see, we've trimmed out the shelves,
and since I have no paint chosen for the cabinets and trim,
I primed the shelves and brackets instead. Of course I've filled
every square inch of space already.
I found the large wicker wine bottle holder and pretty wood chalice
at the the thrift for a grand total of $2.99! The only other thing I bought
is the wood masher which was a few dollars at a local shop.
I picked up the Christmas Pixies on a clearance table for $2 each and since
they resemble leprechauns, I'm letting them hang out in my sterilizer cabinet for now.
They're too cute to pack away!
They may even bring me a bit o' luck with my next paint choice....
Nope, too beige.
Hmmmm, from where I'm sitting it looks too white.
Sooooooo many shades of white to confuse me!
Progress takes time.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're all enjoying sunshine and warm weather!
