We spent the long holiday weekend at the beach. It was great to get away, but Ocean City, MD was pretty busy because of the holiday. We did our best at just relaxing and enjoying the time away. Bob and I found some time to relax by the pool, hit the beach, and boardwalk, and of course had some good eats and drinks! Over the weekend, I also finally caved to signing up for Instagram, and I’m really enjoying it so far. Here are a few of my instagrams from the weekend.
That was our view from the Harborside on Saturday, and below was the inside of Harborside on Friday. It is one of our favorite spots at the beach.
Our beach trip had at least two purposes, to get away and relax was one. The other one was to take Bob’s Mom, Helen, to the beach to stay for the week. So, this morning Bob and Puddy and I packed up and headed home and we left Helen at her house at the beach for the week. And, my goal while she is at the beach is to give her kitchen cabinets a fresh new look!
This is what her kitchen looked like when she left for the beach.
And, there’s a few more cabinets that I didn’t fit in the picture. The goal is to paint the lower cabinets “Icy Bay”, which is a fresh mint color, and the upper cabinets will become “Delicate White”. Both are colors in the Olympic paint line. The cabinets will also get new knobs and pulls. There a total of 12 drawers and 23 cabinets, so there is much work to be done.
Today, Bob helped me remove all the doors and drawer fronts. And, then I began the prep. The old knobs have all been removed and about half of the doors and drawers have been sanded.
Have you painted cabinets? Any tips or tricks to share?
