Painting Shop Cabinets, Day 3 September 16, 2012
Can you get carpal tunnel syndrome from painting? Or is this simply old age? I’m sticking with carpal tunnel syndrome. Sounds much more exotic!
Over the weekend, I painted the doors and drawers of the cabinets with a new brand of chalk paint. It’s called Maison Blanche and it comes from guess where? You guessed it! The U.K.! I think that making paint is all they do over there! No?
I tested out the clear and dark wax application on the inside of one of the cupboard doors. (door on left) This way, if I didn’t like it, I could go to plan B. I found the paint worked very much like Annie Sloan’s product. The coverage is excellent! I used less than 2 quarts to do the entire set of cabinets!
Tomorrow, I’ll be back to waxing. Once finished, I’m going to treat myself to a mani- pedi. My hands look like they fought in a fight, and lost!
Stay tuned, for more important updates! News at eleven!
