I’ll admit; they really weren’t bad at all. And they were at least on the more high end of the builder grade scale. But they had a reddish tint that drove me nuts. Red and I don’t get along usually.
I didn’t document every single step on this one since this was my trial run, but now that I’m the “expert” (definitely need quotations there), I’m sure you’ll be seeing one at some point. For now, you can check out this really thorough one about how to paint cabinets that Laura from The Turquoise Home posted. I didn’t follow her method completely, but it had some great tips.
I did learn a few things along the way that I know I’ll do differently next time though.
I admit, I was nervous when I painted on the first coat of this color because I was worried it was too close to our wall color, Pediment by Sherwin Williams. But I like that it’s not dark so it brightens up the room.
