More on Those Kitchen Cupboards

Yeah, yeah, what was that I heard you say - I'll soon be using those cupboards? Just paint the interior in the morning ("It'll be dry in an hour and you can give the doors a quick coat...") said my friend Debra. Well, Debra, guess I just don't move fast enough. I did the interior this morning and it took pretty well all the rest of the emulsion I had and a couple of hours of my time, what with washing out the brushes and all..

I felt I deserved lunch out after that! on my way home - much later, and in driving sleet, I bought some wax for the shelves and waxed those when I got back.
According to the instructions, they should be left for 2 hours before buffing with a soft cloth, so that neatly takes me to dinner time, and now it's a bit late to be thinking of painting the doors. Anyway there's a lot of preparation to be done there, such as getting the old paint off the glass, and I think that will be a long, boring job.

Also, the weather is not too promising, and the power keeps going off and leaving me in the dark, so I think the doors will have to wait till another day!

Hi Penny, good on you for painting the inside, it looks great. Now you can start filling up those shelves.

Hasn't it been a crappy day today. I was going to go to the glove factory in St Junien, but put up my xmas tree instead. The furthest I got from the house was the chicken coup!! Hope it pick up tomorrow for the Foire aux Chapon.
