more of the same – lockdown 2 day 64

Today, after buying some water based paint for the kitchen cabinet, I gave it the first coat inside and out. With only minor paint on my hands. Hopefully one more coat on this should do it. I’ll just need to buy some knobs and it will be finished.

Then it will be on to the chest of drawers which is currently laminated wood in blue and timber colours.

I chose Benjamin Moore Oyster for both these items for the unit. It looks white till you see it against bright white. Its a nice, soft white.

I decided to go with the mistint pale blue paint I had in my stash for the cat house. Its had one coat of white inside and two of the blue outside. Hopefully one more coat inside and out should do it for this too.

Then I can put the doors on. Here are the doors with the cat door cut into one, now gap-less.

I’ve got the hinges but haven’t decided on the best way to keep the door closed yet. I have a couple of options so I’ll see on that. I’ll put it together and see how I feel.

Of course both the cabinet and the cat house will need a little sand before the last coat. Especially since the cabinet doors and the top of the cat house feel rough to the touch. The cat house cause it was pretty weather damaged and I sanded it back a lot. The doors on the cabinet cause they were raw plywood. I did sand of course, but seems I didn’t do it well enough…. Hm.

I also began spray painting the hardware for the bedroom furniture flat white.

The weather is meant to go from 20-21 degree days down to 12-13 days on Wednesday, so I hope I can get these finished tomorrow. Then Wednesday I either work inside or give it a break for a couple of days and work on my poor neglected dog figures…

I do need to do get back to them!
