Mission Accomplished!

Whew! I've been workin'!! I am tired of painting...but I think I have really done a nice job. See for yourself...

Prepping for painting...


The teal countertop...



Ok...maybe you didn't need THAT many pictures...too bad. I just finished painting it today because it takes a thousand coats of paint to get this job right.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
For those of you have who haven't painted anything like this or furniture, please take this advice - Sand, prime, prime again (if painting lighter) THEN and only then should you paint, paint, paint. I have painted a crib, a twin bed and now this cabinet...sand, prime, paint. In that order. No shortcuts. You'll regret it.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I have actually enjoyed my little project...but I was more than ready to have the finished product.

Now you have pictures that include the floor and the countertop...let's get a few suggestions on a wall color. I have one in mind because I picked up a few paint swatches at the big 'W' the other day...so if even ONE person throws out my 'chosen' color, that's definitely what it'll be. Otherwise, I'll probably whine and complain that no one chose it and I'll have a complex. So tune into your ESPN and pick my color.....I'm sending out color vibes....ready, set, GO!

P.S. Donald will be home after noon Thursday....can't WAIT to get his reaction!
