Oof, my head

Oil-based primer is not my friend. I've always heard it was a hot mess, but I didn't quite get it. I mean, what can be so messy about some paint. Boy was I in for a shock. And a splitting headache.

Today I bit another bullet and started to go to town on the guest bathroom vanity. It's starting out as a lovely (read: pukey) honey oak, and I'm painting it white. This was my "test project." If I like it and it goes well, the master bathroom and perhaps even kitchen cabinets will follow suit.

Well, about three coats in and a whole lotta mess, some thoughts:

1. Sand, sand, sand. I think I forgot to sand one portion of the vanity and I am regretting it.
2. Prime, prime, prime. Yes, it's nasty, but it really does help. I only did one coat, and I wish I had done two. Three coats in and I'm still see a bit of bleed-through with the wood grain. That combined with my sanding screwup is not making this project fun.
3. Having a black Labrador does not help when you're painting. I decided to keep all the painting in the guest bath, because Olivia never goes in there. Well, that was fine until I started taking quick breaks and walking around the rest of the house. I tracked a bunch of hair back in with me and it keeps getting onto my cabinet doors. Ugh.
4. I really love my chosen white "Powdered Snow" by Behr. It's really pretty, and the exact white I was hoping for, but it sure does point out how dingy my doors have become. It's so true that once you start one DIY project, it's a roller coaster from there.

I'm hoping to finish up the main painting tomorrow. More then.
