when we bought our house, it came with very nice white trim and white doors. Unfortunately, in order to get the fireplace and kitchen cabinets white, we had to pay an upgrade. We decided to not upgrade it and get the regular 'wood' color.
A couple years later living in the house, we decide that having the a white fireplace and white cabinets to match the trim and door would look really nice, so we are considering it doing it ourself.
Is this a particular 'big' project? We are just husband and wife and really have no experience in painting or any home maintance.
here are some pics:
trim I want to match to:
Is this a fairly difficult project for first timers?
how do I get the exact same 100% same white/glossy paint?(I never bought paint before)
do I need to 'sand' down the current finish? IF so, how?
what other materials do I need and how do I use them(primer, paint, # of coats, etc etc)
Is it wise to paint these 2 items while they are on the wall? If it requires taking them down and screwing it back in, I might not want to do it.
I have no complaints about the current colors, but if it is fairly easy to make everything match at almost 100%, I wouldn't mind doing it.
any suggestions would be appreciated.
