Nearly Instant Almost De-Brownification

Last night I decided that I was going to focus on cleaning the kitchen. I'm hosting a Bible study here Wednesday night and thought that I'd focus on one room and get it completely done before I moved on. Then I looked at my china cabinet. I shouldn't have, really. But I did it anyway. I painted the inside blue. I've wanted to forever and the mood just hit me and I went with it. For the first time ever though, I picked one small thing that I could finish in an evening. So here are the pics.
I roughed it up with sandpaper, wiped it down and put on a coat of primer....I was a little nervous at this point.

After coat #2 of primer...


And finished for now with two coats of Scandinavian Sky by Olympic. I knew it would match the existing paint because we picked this one and the one we ended up using off the same paint chip. I just had this little sample paint pot lying around and wanted to use it. I love the way it makes the aqua goblets stand out and I'm definitely going to paint the rest of it. I'm thinking white with faux glass handles right now but I haven't been shopping yet. I like it.

Ooooh. I like it too. Wonderful! It brightens the whole thing doesn't it? Like you have a little window over there now.

So pretty! I love those things you can finish really really quickly like that. It's so instantly rewarding! :)

P.S. I keep missing your posts somehow - I'm adding you to my bloglines right now!
