It’s not a super exciting paint job – just plain old white – but it’s nice to have gotten it done because it was not fun to do. Why not? Well, painting 5 little cubbie shelves, a drawer, trim around the pantry and both sides of the two doors = a lot of annoying brush work.
Full of stuff and painted dingy white. You can’t tell how bad the “white” is, but it wasn’t painted well and I’m not a fan of dirty white colors. I like white trim – nice, crisp, clean.
First up though was cleaning the pantry out. Which involved throwing away a lot of expired items
I started throwing each expired item out as I got to it, but there were so fucking many I just collected them all on one shelf and threw them away at the end. And there were a lot of them
Those were all of our secondary spices (we’ve got a spice drawer near the stove), but clearly I need to pick up some more items next time I’m at the grocery store.
When I was done, this is what I was left with
Once it was cleared out of all the items it was in desperate need of cleaning
Then it was time to paint. I wasn’t very excited, but sigh….it had to be done
Now you can see how dingy that white paint is. I was glad to get it covered with a nice new coat, but after things were rolled, it still didn’t look great
Anyways, here’s the pantry painted!
Oh, and while I was painting the second coat Chris was doing something else in here…
