I subscribed a while back to a blog all about kitchens... Of all the hints I got this was the best. If you have white kitchen cabinets, take a door or piece of trim and have it color matched for trim paint. There are millions of different colors of white... I did just that. I think the paint guy thought I was nuts when I asked him to color match a piece of white trim, but he did it.. so all my window trim, doors, door trim, baseboards and well anything white will all match the cabinets.

Lets see what else we got done..
Oh yea...Nothing!! We started checking the weather reports Sunday morning and we were under a Winter Weather Warning from Monday am to Wednesday noon. So we left Sunday afternoon and drove home. We agreed that if there wasn't anything on the ground Monday at 6am, we would leave and work until it got bad. We drove to Lowe's and bought more window trim to paint and we were out of blue painters tape. Got McDonald's for breakfast and about 20 miles from the house it started raining. By the time we got to the house it was freezing on the truck and looked bad. We unloaded, sprayed sealer on the bathroom tile (it has to dry 24 hours before we can do anything else in there) and left. It got pretty bad on the way home and we saw right around 15-20 cars that had slid off the highway. We got home safe and now it's sleeting here. We are supposed to get around 12-18 inches of snow in the next 48 hours...
So next weekend we have to install the vanity, the toilet and the baseboards... Paint more window trim and install it...and that wonderful brother-in-law is coming out Sunday to help install those counter tops. Saturday there is a birthday party for a certain Granddaughter that is turning 3.. Hope I can get out to shop..
