Paint Is My Friend

Remember this cabinet I showed you about a week or so ago?

I painted it.

But it ended up being too poopish-brownish-tan.

So I got a quart of Ben Moore's exterior oops paint at my local hardware store.

Ahh...much better. It's hard to see the difference on the computer, but it's a much better improvement. I added these "glass" knobs I had lying around. Don't know if they'll stay or not. I'm kinda feelin' some antique brassy ones. We'll see.

One more project crossed off the list. Well, I still need to repair/paint the bottom portion, but hey, at least the top is done:)

Participating in:


  1. This looks great! I can totally tell the difference between the first and second color, and the second is beautiful :)

  2. Much better! I'm with ya on the second color, much better than the first.

  3. yay for cabinet makeovers! I also have to agree - the second color is way better :) Way to go girl!
    xo - kb

  4. SO pretty! I just got a cabinet similar to this but with glass doors and I'm still pondering what color to paint it. Gray is certainly a top contender. :)

  5. they both looked nice but the second color offered the cabinet personality come see me at http://shopannies.blogspot.com

  6. Nice work! The color really pops now!

    I'm visiting from Beautiful Junk's party. Have a great day.

  7. The colour and those knobs are lovely!


  8. Love the color and that you can still see the grain of the wood - nice job!

  9. That is a great colour (beats the poopish brown, although I couldn't tell that from my monitor lol)

    I also love the knobs for the elegance factor.

    Thanks for sharing at my first blog party; it's not a party without your participation.

  10. I love the second color. Nice job! :)

  11. This article is really worth every moment.
