New Art Studio, Interior Painting

Hi everyone.  Hope you are having a great week.  Thought you would like an update on the interior painting progress of my new Art Studio from last weekend.  Hurricane Hermine set us back a bit.  Several days of torrential rains prevented me from being able to get out into the back yard and get into the Studio.  The backyard became a swamp of water.  Thank the Lord we had nothing severe here, just tons and tons of rain and we were already waterlogged from a very wet summer.  On Saturday I had to make myself a walkway to the Studio with some paver bricks so that I could get out there to paint without getting my feet wet.  You can see in the pic the water is about ankle deep here near the Studio door, almost to the top of the bricks.  Out towards the center of the back yard, to the right of the pic, it was almost a foot deep.

The back yard still has some standing water in it days later and is slowly drying out.  We are one house off the river so we had to literally watch the creek behind the house and make sure it did not rise too high.  Hubby put plastic and sand bags along the front edge of the house just in case.  The Counties north of us got hit really hard.  Lots of damage from high winds, trees falling on homes and cars, and lots and lots of flooded homes.  So we are definitely counting our blessings.

I decided that painting the cabinets would be easier to do if I did them before Rick installs the sink and the counter top under them for me.  I cleaned the cabinets and got the cabinet doors taken off them.  These are the ones on the left hand side of the studio.

Two coats of primer painted on the doors.  There are 5 cabinet doors on this side of the Studio.

I started putting the primer on the cabinet facings.  I am leaving the insides of the cabinets white, so not putting any paint on them.  Just painting everything that was pale pink previously.

I am not going to tell you what color I am painting the cabinets, not just yet.  You will have to wait for the big reveal!!  LOL.  Stay tuned for more updates to come.
