In between painting the three different coats in the laundry room, I repainted the kitchen paneling. For some reason when I did this the first time, I chose a matte paint that was hard to clean.

I'm not done yet, gentle readers--I've got a lot of work ahead of me. Hopefully this week the contractors will finish their work and I will be able to put the laundry room back together.
