This past weekend, Melinda and Michael finally had the opportunity to start working on the transformation of their garage. In case you missed the post, here’s what it started out looking like:
As you can see in the “before” garage picture, there are some cabinets on the walls left over from a kitchen remodel several years back. They really have not been as useful as they could be for cabinets, so Melinda decided to remove the cabinet doors and just have open cabinets. The dark colored wood was not inspiring for the soon to be playroom, so it was off to Lowes to find paint.
In an earlier post, we talked about checking the remnant bin at the fabric store when you are working on a project that doesn’t need a large piece of fabric. Well, we decided to check out the “remnant” bin in the paint section at Lowes.
Next time you are planning a paint project, whether a room or piece of furniture or craft project, check out the mistint paints, or “oops” paint at your local paint store before heading to the paint chips. You just might find something that you like and will save a lot of money at the same time. Be sure to check what kind of paint it is, flat, semi-gloss, etc. to make sure it will be suitable for your project.
Now for another sneak peak at the finished cabinets:
