A New Color

The dinette riser base cabinets got a splash of primer and color. These surfaces will not be seen by anyone under normal conditions. However, the admiral wanted to pick a specific color. Its a very nice color. “Beach Basket” is the name. Sounds somewhat nautical, don’t it?

But, this is not “marine grade” paint. We feel the marine premium is not necessary in this sort of application. This is a household oil based exterior grade enamel. Turns out, with the advent of latex paint, this stuff is getting a bit scarce. A regular paint store will probably have it, maybe your local hardware store, but the big box stores like Home Depot or Lowe’s do not stock this stuff. At $30-ish a gallon it is less than one third the cost of the marine equivalent.
