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.

It looks SO bright and pretty!
I like the sealer idea, too. Get something that just wipes clean.
That's the only bad thing about light colored walls and cabinets.

Your cabinets look great Marilyn. You must have a steady hand and an eye for what looks good. Looks like a nice collection of books also. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.

I would love to paint our kitchen cabinets (but I'm such a chicken, haha). I love Laura Childs and have all her books except her latest. I'm hoping it comes out in paperback soon. (I'm so impatient!) I love her tea shop mysteries.
