Day 14 of remodel

It has been 2 weeks now since we started our remodel. Today I got to paint! I started by priming everything. The trim, the fridge "cave", and the cabinet drawers. When that was complete I painted the cabinets the color I picked out for them. It is called Lyndhurst Castle sand. Kind of a greenish gray. It will be interesting to see what the color looks like when the tile gets installed.

Good bye cabinets. The red never looked as good as I had wanted it. So I am glad to see it go.
All primed and waiting to be painted.
This is the new paint color. The pictures don't show the true color.

Ignore what is inside all the cabinets. Totally messy cupboards.
Definitely hard to tell what the real color is.

Next, paint the trim and the cave and all other touch up areas!

It's looking so good! I was asking Ren if you were changing the red, he said he didn't know -- but I love the change. It will look great with the updated flooring. I was going to come by on Fri after work to check it out but decided not to. I told Ren I want to see it for the first time when it's done, it will be like a big reveal. (I'm not very good at invisioning the end product anyways so all I would see now is a big unfinished mess)

Heidi cracks me up. Anyway, the color looks good. Really hard to see what it really is but I can already tell that it is cleaner looking and will look great with all of the updates. Already makes your kitchen look bigger without the red. Also can't wait to see the cave painted.
