Then I stripped off the old paper and found all kinds of horrors underneath. I don't know if it was mold, syrup, or general rot, but it was scary. I was in there so long, scrubbing with various chemicals, that the condition of the pantry walls and shelves started to bother me more than usual. I don't know how many decades it has been since it was painted, and it was a pretty bad job then.
So I've decided to paint the pantry. I have lots of paint left from various projects, including the adjacent laundry room. Palest blue refreshed the whole south side of the house and goes with the kitchen. I also have enough semi-gloss for the shelves and woodwork.
|After cleaning. Need to scrub it again.|
I'm also going to change the light bulb. Yellow?
