Let there be light!

Have you ever been GRIPPED by an overwhelming desire to renovate a room..a feeling so strong that waiting an extra day, (to maybe talk to your husband about your plan) is simply out of the question?  Well, this was the situation my friend found herself in on her recent day off, and she called me from the parking lot at Home Depot buzzing with excitement, ideas and energy.

She was on a roll- as in ready to roll a new paint color onto her old cherry cabinets in the master bathroom.


First step was to apply the product below so that the new paint would adhere.


Picking the appropriate color wasn’t easy as she needed to harmonize with the existing floor tile and countertop.


The good news is, there really are no “rules” to follow with color these days and mixing shades of white is no different. Light, dark, warm, cool it all works when it comes together to create the over-all feel that we’re trying to achieve.

r4My friend was looking to create an inviting, fresh and updated space- a simple, but dramatic make-over…

and she most certainly did just that,



PS- And oh yeah, her husband loved it.

      Did the paint last over time? I know my friend was concerned about durability.

      1. Well, it’s been about 3 years and so far so good….time will tell, I suppose. 🙂

    Did you sand first or anything special? 3 years is actually REALLY good-my son wants to paint his cherry cabinets and I kept telling him not to because I was afraid it would come right off or be all streaky..until my friend here did it and it looks good- so now I’m thinking it may look fine!
