Most years, Claude and I are fairly proactive with our yard cleanup, but the weather has been so nice this year, we put yard work on the back burner. Yesterday was sunny and reasonably warm, and we felt secure in our decision to delay. Surprise!!! This morning it decided to snow! Time to get serious and start our cleanup. 

1)  Don’t Wait Too Long! - Yes, it is Alberta and the weather will warm up.

Two weeks ago my husband and I embarked on a home renovation adventure that, as per Youtube, should have taken 4-5 days to complete. Here are our top tips on how to paint your kitchen cabinets! 

    

1)   Choose Your Colour Wisely - Over the past 10 years, our maple cabinets had yellowed, and we were looking for something fresh and clean. We were aiming for a creamy white, but what we achieved with our first try was as close to snow white as we could get. Because we did a test door, we realized our mistake right away. We ended up taking the cream colour of our baseboards and pantry door and using 3/4 of that colour depth.

2)   Stay Away From Oil - Our first primer was a hybrid oil based primer; horrible! It was very hard to roll smoothly and it
