Not quite, Mr. DeMille

Well, we have the first coat of paint on the cabinets! But they aren't ready for their close-up just yet. In fact, not for a while yet. A few places on the frames look more like a drippy ice cream cone than a satin smooth finish. This new paint from Benjamin Moore has some great properties, but run- and sag-resistant is not one of them. It's much trickier to spray than a standard latex. It does self-level and harden amazingly well. After applying it late last night and agonizing over all the drips, I expected it to look like a bunch of stalactites in there this morning. But it's actually not half-bad. But there is a lot of sanding to do before the next coat, so I'm off!
