Problem: The paint can is empty. Maybe I should have thinned it a bit more for the first coat on the doors.
But I wanted good coverage! I did thin it to finish the two doors on the left and it was easier to brush on. When I get around to the other side of the kitchen I think I'll be priming the doors first, then painting. Too much tannin came through the paint. At least that is what I think it's called. I did go back and seal some edges and then put on a third coat of paint and liked that so much better as those edges didn't turn yellow.
Now for sanding and sealing this set of doors. I'm going to skip the wax and use the sealer. I know that will be easier on my wrists. They need to work for playing the piano, too.
Between coats I just might sneak in a bit of reading. I have two more Miss Julia books in her series to enjoy and the latest Donna Andrews. Read the Laura Childs book last night. All 'fluffy' reading for summer pleasure.
After more years than I care to admit, I'm now a retired teacher. I'm a Colorado native, love to play the hand bells at church, will always choose reading over cleaning, and I dearly love my family. In the spring and summer I love to get out in my flower gardens and play in the dirt!
