I knew I needed to caulk the gaps between the upper kitchen cabinets and the ceiling. They were there before I painted; a remnant of the popcorn ceiling removal (again, those guys were slackers).
After the cabinets were painted it was even more obvious:
Behold the beauty of my caulking!
I read a lot on Pinterest about how to do it well. The secrets:
- Cut the hole as small as you possibly can. I didn't even cut all the way to the 1/8 mark and it was plenty big.
- Don't use a wet finger. Wet your finger with water, blot it once on a damp paper towel, and then smooth out the caulk bead. Wipe off excess caulk, wet your finger, and repeat the process.
Yay for me!! (And my kitchen. And Pinterest.)
