so i’ve done my final fine grit sanding and needed to fill a couple holes where the old hardware went. i used a product, DAP Plastic Wood, to fill the holes- roll it into a tiny ball, push it into the space and make it mound a little on top. When it dries, sand it back down so it’s even with the rest of the surface.
next step! PAINT! i cannot tell you how much i loved getting to this part. it’s when you can actually start seeing a difference. i chose Wool Coat from our friendly Ace Hardware paint selection. i decided to go with a flat sheen… you’ll find out why i regretted that decision in a few short moments.
i found some cute little wooden knobs at the local hardware store and found them quite quaint in their natural state. i decided not to paint them. i love how they look.
after the paint dried, it felt HORRIBLY chalky. i can’t stand that feeling, it gives me the heeby jeebies. so my husband suggested i use spray on instant drying laquer to give it a glossier feel. it worked great.
i’m SO close to being finished now, i can hardly stand it. all i have left to do is find some hinging that works with these doors. it’s been a little tricky. will post again soon! i have a “last week of june” deadline.
