Painting Cabinets & A New Piece of Art

11:38 AM Katy 5 Comments

I have only recently invaded Etsy.
I love love love pallette knife paintings, and when I saw this one from Melissa Riker I was all over it. I am not sure where I'm going to put it yet -- I have this vision of collecting affordable paintings from Etsy.
Anyway -- I'm painting cabinets.

 This new gun is a lot of work. Between the set-up, clean-up, and the fact that you need a large area to control the overspray, I almost feel like the brush/roller approach is the best.
 I did not spray the side of the flaming golf cart, but I did spray the driveway accidentally.

We're getting there...
(Benjamin Moore, White Dove in semi-gloss, my favorite cabinet paint right now.)
**edited to add: I'm so tired, I forgot to shut down the compressor and it kicked on in the garage at 4 am, woke me up and scared the daylights out of me. lol
