Well, yesterday was a day of painting.
That is not the fun part, but it has to be done.
My sweet daddy came over to help me.
I love any chance I get to spend with him. Even if it is painting a ceiling!
We had the country music up loud, and of course he bought me a coke from McDonald’s to keep me going. I love that man!
We focused on putting a coat of paint on the ceiling and the pantry.
We only had about a half a day to work, so we did as much as we could.
I put the first coat of paint on the ceiling, and I already love it.
Unfortunately, the nail holes and natural wood holes show up once you paint it white.
So now we are filling in the holes with wood filler. Not a hard job…just tedious.
Here is the wood filler we used, and the paint I am using on the pantry doors. I will also be using this paint on the bottom cabinets when I paint them. (Hopefully soon!)
The pantry doors still need one more coat of paint…
Whew! We are getting there!
My husband is off work from the bank tomorrow, so our goal is to finish the pantry and the ceiling.
He is also going to make some cabinets for beside and above the stove.
(I’m going to share more about that in another post.)
I am also going to try and make a decision on what color I want to paint the walls.
I am going for a very light color on the walls. Maybe something with a hint of gray?
I love the color For the Love of a House has on her kitchen walls.
I also love just white walls. The are so bright and crisp.
Do you have any paint colors you think I should check out?
Any inspiration pictures you want to share?
I’ll have a conversation going on my Beneath My Heart facebook page if you would like to chime in!
Have a blessed day!
