All the cultured marble is the Crushed Walnut color
Jim Witt has taken down all the doors and removable shelves to stage them for painting
The first step of painting MDF shelves is to seal the edges so they don't suck up the paint
Jim double-checks all the taped surfaces
Window frames and glass are all covered with plastic, paper and tape
Master bath baseboard accent is papered and taped, and tile covered with cardboard. Also, the gap between old hardwood and new tile has been filled with some MDF. Carpet will run over that to meet the tile.
Heating vents are left open. The paint will need a toasty interior temperature to dry properly.
Kitchen window and cabinets prepped for paint
The trim paint color was matched to the kitchen cabinets (sample square above job sheet)
Rain has washed off most of the stone sawdust

Finishing up the wash and making final adjustments to the border stones
Poly sand grout was put down today, and the patio is done! Hmmm...from here the wide-angle lens distortion makes the patio look like Wisconsin. (borrowed from the Jan 25-26 gallery)
