DUDE! SERIOUSLY. OMG! I'M SO FREAKIN EXCITED.
Hubby is asleep and I can't show him---so I'll show ya'll!
Remember my beadboard cabinet idea? Read through again if you want to catch up and see how I left them.
I painted one black, and one Rustoleum Heirloom White. Both satin finish.
I did not like how the beadboard took the black paint. This is two coats, and of course the flash makes it worse, but it doesn't look good in person, either. And honestly, in this case, I really didn't want the black to look good, because I'm stuck on this vision in my head for ivory cabinets. And if I have an idea in my head, forgetaboudit.
I used two old washcloths--one for the dry application, then a damp one to wipe off excess. Wipe on, wipe off. Repeat until you get the look you want. I applied and wiped twice.
Check out the results. I couldn't stop taking pictures to show you.
Can you see the vision??
Look at it with my wall color, and my new floor...
And my hardware...
WELL??? COMMENTS PLEASE!!!
And you're probably wondering who the heck is Ernesto? And why are you telling him to eat his heart out? Ernesto is the painter that re-did my M-I-L's cabinets. He wouldn't tell me any of his tricks. Well now I REALLY know why! THERE ARE NO TRICKS OR SECRETS TO THIS! Maybe I should think about a career change...hmmm....
