After deciding I did not like the Wyeth Blue on the cabinet, I had my husband Gene, the Menard’s paint man, color match a sea foam green color to the bathroom wallpaper. Someday I’ll strip off that paper and repaint, but not this year as winter is almost over and it’s time to begin working outside in my garden.
I painted the cabinet outside using Dutch Boy Platinum, semi-gloss interior latex paint. I then painted the inside of the cabinet in a soft yellow paint left over from the bedroom wall mix. I also antiqued the medallion and grooved accent areas with the soft yellow for a subtle but pretty look.
This has not been my easiest project to date but I often learn things the hard way, and this was an example of that.
The medallian is slightly washed with yellow paint and the image shows the thin line of yellow painted trimmed edge. These are two of my favorite details in this project.
Luckily, I love the final product and that what counts, isn’t it? What do you think of my project?
