you can find the post and color combo here.
I found this project to have a big impact
and was the perfect solution to add
a pop of color to the room.
Oil based primer (Kilz works great)
Swiss coffee in latex semi gloss
Remove all of your doors
Prep the room covering everything you don’t want painted
Remove all the hardware and hinges.
If your cabinets have gaps or dings fill them with wood filler.
Degrease all the doors, draws and frames. Tsp is a great degreaser as is vinegar and hot water.
Sand everything I used an electric sander with medium grit (80 or 100).
Prime with an oil based primer. Foam rollers will give you the look as though your cabinets have been sprayed.
NOTE: Latex paint will adhere perfectly to oil based primer. Latex primer over oil paint will not work at all.
Let it dry, buff out any drips and give it another coat.
The only item purchased was the pottery on the top which I found at Home Goods. The best advice I can give on styling your bookshelves is to step back and assess the overall balance of your arrangement. If it doesn’t look right, place certain items off-center or try an item that is larger or smaller, stand back and assess again. Take things away if it’s to busy, keep doing this until you are happy with the look.
