2 posts in a day doesn't happen often but I was able to get my pictures uploaded so I thought I'd share. Several months ago I asked my friends dad to build a corner cabinet for my formal dining room. I told him it was no rush & just whenever he got to it would be fine. Well, he finished right before we left for Disney. He came & installed it while we were gone. I was so excited to come home to this.
Merry Christmas to me!! It's exactly what I wanted! Keep in mind I just told him a corner cabinet & he did the rest. He matched up molding & built it the height of the entrance to my dining room & actually hooked it to the wall so it looks like it's always been there. You can't tell in this picture but it was just primed. The plan was to paint it the same color as the rest of the molding in the room. That's where Sherwin Williams came in. We bought our house when it was 2 yrs. old. The previous owner used all Behr paint colors but in Sherwin Williams paint. I learned the hard way that when you do that you can't go to Home Depot & buy the Behr paint in the proper color & expect it to match. Annoying. REALLY annoying. Have you bought Sherwin Williams paint lately? The stuff is expensive. Try twice as much as a gallon of Behr. Even with the 30% off it was still $40 for 1 gallon. We've painted the majority of our house since moving in 5 years ago & we've always used Behr & we like it. I haven't had any problems. So I paint the cabinet with the gold that apparently is Sherwin Williams & I CAN'T TELL A DIFFERENCE. I just don't understand why it's so much more expensive. Here's an after picture.
