I finally painted the master bath cabinets. I chose to use the same color as the walls instead of white like they were. The cabinets had the original paint color on them and were very worn and scratched after sixteen years of use.
I used Benjamin Moore Advance in Revere Pewter. This is a pretty greige color. This paint is especially made for cabinets and I love it. It has a leveling agent in it so the brush marks disappear as it dries.
In fact, the base that I painted with a brush looked so good that Mr. Savvy decided that we would just brush the second coat on the doors he sprayed. The truth is he didn't want to have to clean his sprayer again.
So he sprayed the first coat on in his garage and I ended up doing the finishing coat back in the bathroom where he brought all the doors and drawers back up.
This is the mess we lived with for a week. The paint had to dry for sixteen hours between coats, according to the directions, and then had to cure for 72 hours before putting everything back. I sanded between each coat for a silky smooth finish.
I ordered new glass knobs that are reproductions of antique knobs. If you are interested in these here is the link. These come in several sizes and colors and were very reasonably priced.
I chose the green to go with the greens in the granite plus we have a green stained glass window over the tub and green glass inserts in the tiled floor. If I had to do it all over the window would have been a clear lead glass and the floor would have been all neutral, but this is a lot better than the green wall to wall carpet that was in here for many years.
Love these rugs from World Market. I wash them weekly and they look just like new.
I had thought about glazing the cabinets with black, but I like the clean fresh look.
You can see a bit of the way they looked white in this post.
I highly recommend this Benjamin Moore Advance paint for cabinets and I was not compensated in any way to say this. It's just great paint. It is latex and low odor unlike oil based.
Hope you will join in at Wow Us Wednesdays that is still going. Attendance is way down due to the holiday. Some people have had trouble linking and have emailed me. I even tried to link one of them for them and it told me the same thing about not having a back link, but they do. I am sorry about this. It must be a glitch with inlinkz this week.
