Painting our kitchen with Sherwin Williams
July 19, 2006
We've lived in our home for seven years and it's starting to show some signs of use from daily living.
Our kitchen needed a paint job, so Gladys and I made a decision to redo it this summer. My goal with this post is to share some positive help to those considering similar projects.
We spent a good chunk of time organizing this effort. For many this all is a no-brainer. But, we organized and prioritized the steps we would need to take, like washing the walls and the woodwork, taking doors off cupboards and making sure that they would all be properly marked and so on and so on.
But the biggest help with potentially one of the most contentious issues was the website of Sherwin Williams. It's color visualizer was a tremendous help in picking colors. You pick a room and then arrange the colors in the room the way you want. You get a good picture of how things will look.
Our local Sherwin Williams store in Lansing was a tremendous help. The staff knows paint and painting. They were helpful. I like Home Depot and Lowes and Menards, but for painting I think I like Sherwin Williams better.
We have a few more pics of our effort on Flickr which can be accessed by clicking on the icon in the bottom left margin.
