A Library Sneak Peak… in the Dressing Room

Remember my new, plain, wardrobe doors?

They have finally been painted:

I tried to get this picture under varying light and flash conditions, but I couldn’t get the colours quite right, not even in my graphic application. The paint is just about exactly the same rich honey colour as the base colour of all the oak cabinetry. The new cabinetry doesn’t blend in, but at least it doesn’t jar. I might one day, as a weekend project, do a faux oak finish on all the new cabinetry, so I’ll at least have the right base colour for that. For now, Donna agrees with me that the paint is a vast improvement over the mishmash of finishes I used to have!

How is this a sneak peak for the library? Hmm…

Kitchen Preview

The rig looks like a tornado blew through it and I still have some painting to do in the library and dressing room, but, but… the kitchen is done. I’m feeling a little dazed at the thought.

I’m going to do a proper before and after of my wonderfully functional RV kitchen, but I just had to provide a sneak peak tonight! Just call me a tease. 😀

Not So Mellow Yellow

I awoke to a bit of a shock. The yellow that was so warm in the somber loft was BRIGHT LEMON in a large, sunny room. At first, I thought that the paint folks goofed with my new batch of paint and then I remembered that I did most of the first coat with the original batch and that the new batch was a perfect match. What a difference natural sunlight makes!

It will be toned down by the curtains, pictures, furniture, etc. so I am not in panic mode at all and I have to say that it is rather cheery!

Since I have so much paint left, and it’s a relatively easy space to work in, I will definitely do a third coat in this room.

The cabinetry colour is also satisfactory, but I’m not spoiling that. 😀

Here’s a random Cute!Cat picture:
