Spring (Green) is Here

Hurray for us! We took a big step forward in the kitchen work this weekend. Darwin has all but one set of the upper doors shaved to the right width and hung. Of course, they'll have to come down again for another coat of paint on the inside faces, but it's easier to paint the outsides with them up, so they're staying for now.

While Darwin was slaving away on that task, I did some priming and then finally got to indulge my desire to start painting GREEN!

Doesn't it look mahhhvelous? Of course, it'll look much better when we get the trim installed. Now it's a bit ragged, and there's still some wood showing here and there between the hinges of the bottom doors. The bottom doors will have to wait a week or two for their appointment with the table saw and the drill.

Just because I'm feeling generous (and masochistic), here's a photo of me priming the long strips of trim, yet to be cut. Lately, I look a bit more like Violet Beauregarde when she turns into a blueberry than like the oft-mentioned Veruca Salt.

Yay - congrats on getting the green up. It looks great!

(and you don't resemble a blueberry in the least, darling)

Your want list is a good idea..... I've been tempted to start my own, since my bookmarks are a mangled mess as well. But most of my wants won't be taken care of for YEARS, so it may just be torture!

Thanks for saying I don't look like a blueberry. You should've seen the other pictures. When they came up on my screen, I sat there staring, dumbfounded. Ugh, it sneaks up on ya.
