Saturday morning I'm having my Lasik surgery "tuned up"... having gone through this surgery once before, I know that I'll likely just want to close my eyes and sleep for a few hours after, but when I wake up and can see perfectly again, I will want to do stuff that requires use of my sharpened vision immediately (though, due to likely bloodshot eyes, not publicly)!
Since I have no kitchen progress on which to report, I have decided to research my cabinet painting plans and get myself organized to hopefully get started on that in the next few days.
|(not my hairy arms... or Dave's...)|
eHow has a very simple step-by-step that basically confirmed what I thought already. I need to get myself (before Lasik) to a hardware/paint store and purchase:
- fine and medium grain sandpaper
- wood primer
- disposable foam brushes
- small paint roller or brushes (I can probably do this with brushes only... right?)
Okay... so paint color. As I said, I'm leaning toward white-white. There are clearly lots of paint options, so I'll consult with the pros at whichever store I visit to find the right interior wood paint in a pretty bright, clean, crisp white. Gloss vs. flat? I don't even know which I should want! Probably not gloss... right?
Now that I'm thinking about this actively though, I'm worried that I need the junkyard in the second bedroom cleared out before I start -- as that might be the only logical place to do the painting and be able to keep Lanie and her fur out of the way. Whether this happens this weekend or next, I'm excited to get started. Anyone who wants to participate/help is invited... I'll provide treats as payment.
I'll obviously also need white painter's overalls and a bandanna.
