Google+ What I Made Today: Layers

Layers

Today I started painting my little kitchen floor. The Boy had laid down three layers of the warm bamboo floor paint, which looked very odd and out-of-place with the pale green cabinets, and dusty lavender and paler green walls. The voices reassured me ... each and every time I asked.
So I tested my technique on the test panel and got down to business.
The first layer of dusty lavender went down and I remained unconvinced, but the voices reassured me yet again.

Then I put a green layer over that and I started to feel a little more confident of the whispers that are guiding me through this project. Tomorrow I will add some much-needed contrast by mixing some raw umber with the green and continue the lavender and green layering over that. I'm looking forward to seeing the progression AND to putting on the final clear coat AND having my sweet, silly little kitchen back. Some day soon. Please Gods ... some day soon.

I think I'll spin some cords now, or maybe I'll crochet - but not before reminding you to enter my give-away ... only four more days 'til the drawing! Peace.

Are those metal cupboards? I LOVE metal cupboards!

tarabu - no, they are heavy wood built-ins ... from the 1950s, so the drawer style resembles the metal cabinets of the day.

When we moved into this house, the bathroom cabinets were metal. And corroding - not ideal room for them. Even so, they lasted a LONG time.
