Today, after consulting with Sandra, I decided I should move forward with painting the walls. As Sandra pointed out, this will avoid heartache later when I am trying to paint, after the cabinets are installed, and spilling paint on my new cabinets. 🙂
To get started, I have to pull down the crown molding in the area, since the book cases are going all the way to the top. To my delight, I found that under the crown molding the 70’s were still alive under my crown molding and the popcorn ceiling was there. No biggie, just thought it was funny.
Thank you Sherwin Williams for French Grey paint. Adios to weird white striped walls with beige skirt, hello uniformity! I decided to paint the wall at the end of the room with the French doors a bright teal color, since the wall is not that big, and it makes a bold statement.
I finished up the second coat of paint on the walls and moved all of the cabinets into place. I also touched up the cabinets with the white paint.
This is the middle cabinet that will hold our three printers (don’t ask), but for those that are curious, I have a work printer, we have a color printer, and I have a wide format printer for scrapbooking.
Now, what to do with those pesky wires and plugs?? Stay tuned…
