Got the color on the pantry walls today. It looks a little too "pinky" for my taste (so hard to choose a wall color from a paint chip!), but since very little of the walls will show when the cabinets are in, the shelves are up and filled and the two freezers are in the room, I'm not upset about it.
We also took the time today to finalize our needs for the tracks and brackets to mount the shelves on. Good thing this is a one-time expenditure as we may have to stop at the Credit Union for a small home loan before purchasing all of them.
Happy to report that neither of us suffered any pulled muscles or achy body parts from the painting yesterday (which was about twice as much as we did today) but we sure did feel pooped when we finished doing the walls this afternoon.
I ran out to the garden early this morning and picked a pound and a half of strawberries that we ate fresh during the day. There are lots more out there that I'll have to get tomorrow.
