$2.50 Paint Project 2, Part 1

With the hustle and bustle of the holidays winding down, but a few more precious days of Christmas vacay remaining, Patrick and I are kicking out as many projects as possible this week.  One such project has been waiting in the cabinet for a few months, after yet another Lowe's oops rack paint find.

You may recall our beigey, off-white countertops.

They were never particularly offensive to me, but once we painted the cabinets white, the counters started to seem a little off.

The paint takes 3 days to dry, so we have only completed one side of the counters so far, allowing us to make coffee and prep meals on the other side of the kitchen.  But it's definitely worth the wait...

And a close-up (yes, the counter is textured):

We did two coats for full coverage and admittedly, I have a few spots I'd like to touch up tomorrow.  Once those sections dry and set, we'll finish the other side of the counters.

Anyone else been doing house projects this Christmas?
