Eliminating Secrets: part 4

After sanding the cupboards, the interiors looked clean and white.

After three weeks of dirty work, and a basic clean-up, we were ready to tackle the walls and ceiling.  We patched holes, caulked seams and stripped the baseboard.  Then we applied a single coat of primer.

As we brushed on the primer, and discussed what color to paint the walls, a transformation took place before our eyes.

Walls primed, cupboard interiors look yellowed

The cupboard interiors looked nice and white after sanding down to bare wood, but with primer on the walls, they suddenly looked yellowed and in need of paint.  So, after we conferred about what to do, we made the decision to spray paint the interiors to freshen them up a bit, rather than painting by brush.

During the week that followed, I bought paint, brushes and rollers, in preparation  for next week’s goal, while my sister looked for white spray paint, and started shopping for hinges and door pulls.
