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

Welcome to my three ring circus. Cake? Tequila? Pardon me while I cut this lumber and yell at my kids for the 100th time --

About Me

My photo
For many years I was a mechanical engineer by day, a house renovator by night, and a single mom. I previously built a tiny house on Tybee Island that I sold in 2015. Then I lost my day job, met Prince Charming, and now work full time demolishing (fixing) his lake house. ;) Stop by for the house stuff, stay for the never-ending disasters, pianos falling out of the sky, floods, threats of financial ruin, & panic attacks. It's like house flipping meets the zombie apocalypse! with lots of kids!

Ad Free

I don't do ads/affiliate marketing/ guest posting/reviews for free product, etc. The only exception to this would be if Bob Vila asks me to do something (anything). ;)
