Painting “Kitchen”

I haven’t written in a while…

Trying to keep busy as possible…

Our home had been neglected in the last three years…

Had worked on outside when Bobby passed…

Now… inside is priority

Kitchen… my favorite room…

needed painting bad…

 

New lights suggested by my neighbor who helps me so much…

They look awesome! … and so much brighter…

I hadn’t realized how dirty everything was…

how faded…

just worn out…

wallpaper removed…

wood sanded…

caulking…

it is hard work…

 

Finally got to point of painting above the wainscoting that is on bottom half of kitchen…

My neighbor to the rescue again…

Would have been more ahead of the game if the guy at Home Depot had mixed my color right…

He actually didn’t put the color tint in my paint at all…

my light gray was “white”…

me, wondering why it just didn’t look right… duh!

so taking paint back…

getting a new gallon of the right color… I began again…

As I was actually struggling at this point…

My best friend who usually comes to my rescue…

came in and immediately began painting…

I ended up being his “runner”…

“hand me this person”

“moving things and looking for any defects”

which there are few…

pretty much a perfectionist…

and FAST!

“rinse towel out”

“wipe up any drips”

He whips it out in no time…

I’m good at clean up… I decided…

Probably the position I need to stick to…

I am going to try to paint wainscoting today…

a darker gray…

We decided on a different darker shade of gray for chair rail…

Do I want to paint?… of course not!…

But, I will…

Has to be done… and I am so ready for this project to be done…

Oh, yeah!… forgot to say…

I am going to paint my kitchen cabinets also…

“Glutton for punishment”… you say…

but, something that needs to be done…

and will make kitchen look so much better…

My budget is very limited as you can tell…

but, so grateful for where I am…

I’m able to keep my home…

and the work needed will get done…

My sons have been good to help… but, my “go to” is my best friend neighbor…

He has kept me focused…

made me laugh and smile

and reassured me… I will be OK!…

and that “All is good!”…
