Starting from where I left off yesterday, I’m here to talk about the supplies I use to paint my cabinets. I use Whizz door and cabinets high-density foam rollers. I love these and I use them for my cabinets, my doors, and my furniture makeovers. They are found at Lowe’s
Gotta love Scotch Blue painters tape! Again, another must have in my stash…
I love love love Sherwin Williams paint. I’m painting my upper cabinets in Aesthetic White 7035. This white is not a bright white and it’s not a yellowish white either. It has a gray undertone and it’s the color of the trim and SOME of the doors in my home (another thing to add to the check list…paint doors!)
Because the bottom cabinets get the most wear, I decided to prime them again and my go to primer is
Some prefer oil-based primer, but I decided not to go that route. Plus I wanted to add this, I’m not painting my cabinets again because the the last paint didn’t hold up. I’m painting them to go with the colors I painted my downstairs late last year. I want all of my trim and wood work to be cohesive.
My go to brush is
I know a lot of people swear by Purdy brushes and yeah they are good, but I’ve never had a problem with my trusty ole Shur-Line for 6 bucks!
The little craft brush (above) is a MUST for me! I use it to get in the small spaces. Let me tell you, these brushes are my FAVORITE when I’m painting furniture! You can find them at Hobby Lobby or Michael's.
So after sanding the cabinets
and wiping away the dust
I started painting!
I LOVE THIS BRUSH!
You can kinda see the difference between the two whites. The new white on the left, and the bight white on the right. I do like the white that I had on them, but the new white is going to be perfect with the wall color!
Now, I mentioned painting the upper cabinets Aesthetic White… The lowers will be another color! Here is a hint
It’s Intellectual Gray by Sherwin Williams7045. I went back and forth between this color and Amazing Gray7044, but I ultimately chose the darker color. Amazing Gray is truly amazing, but it wasn't too much of a difference with my current wall color which is SW Accessible Beige7036.
I’ve already started on the bottom cabinets. I’ll keep you posted on the progress. Will I be finished by Monday??? We’ll see
