On my to-do list for the past few months has been to paint the bottom section of the DIY linen closet.
Charlie cut it down to size.
Now it’s my turn to change the color of it.
I started with the inside which I wanted white to give the maximum light reflection quality. It was turquoise.
I got out our paint sprayer* and gave the inside of the cabinet as many thin coats as I thought necessary to cover the bright aqua blue.
To make the job easier I removed the doors. The final color might be pale grey as opposed to bright white but it will do.
I removed the hinges from the doors because I want to paint them some metallic shade — Metallic Charcoal wouldn’t surprise me.
I also removed the drawer pulls from the drawers and filled the holes with wood filler.
I expect to get new drawer pulls and matching knobs for both the lower and upper sections of the linen closet.
The next step is to lightly sand the top, front, and drawers before I paint them “Secret”.
While I’m painting them would be the perfect time to also paint the boards that are destined to be our bedroom bookshelves.
*One day I’m going to give a tutorial on how this spray painter from
Horror Harbor Freight works and how to clean it.
Favorite method of painting : brush, roller, spray?
