Impatient as I am, there was really no choice but to rush off to Home Depot last night to get more paint- this time, in a lighter shade (Gobi Desert).
Hubby was excited too because he started painting as soon as we got home to test the color "susubukan lang, hindi tatapusin". So this is what it looks like now.
Notice the darker portion on the bottom of the left wall, near the arched doorway? That's Harvest Brown, the previous color.
I'm loving this now.
I can't wait to get started on painting the cabinet doors (see bi-fold doors on the right). They were painted with Flat enamel paint so it easily gets dirty and is so hard to clean. I also saw some hardware with a brushed nickel finish that seems perfect for these doors too, will get them when we're done painting.
