I applied one coat of paint in the master bath, needing to cover wallpaper and paneling, and Dave just surprised me by saying he was heading over there to give it another coat of paint. YES!! I will be leaving soon to go buy yet another gallon of paint for the kitchen ceiling. Then I will attempt to paint the pantry door. Will this ever end?? I want to throw out our paint pans and rollers when we are finished!
We are making progress with the entire project though. Son Jason is doing the remodeling for us (minus the painting) and he has begun to install the new cabinets. Here is a photo taken at the beginning of this process as Jason was tearing out the kitchen cabinets, etc. Notice that ugly wallpaper!
The first room I painted was one of the spare bedrooms. I chose a light green and it was tough to paint as I couldn't differentiate (when the paint was wet) between the old yellow/cream color and the new green color. Once I finished, the change was obvious and I loved the look.
|Hmm, what's new and what's old paint???|
Just to add to our workload, we ordered a shed and Dave has begun the process preparing the spot to install the shed. Yup. It was delivered in 2 flat boxes and needs to be assembled. I also ordered a new desk for my computer and that is also in 2 boxes and needs to be put together. I am planning on buying a new Hemnes daybed from ikea since it not only has 3 big drawers in it to store the grandkids toys, but it will make into a king size bed. But....you guessed it.....it will need to be assembled!
When we are moved in and done with all this craziness, we can picture ourselves out on the patio sipping our margueritas and reading on our kindles. But wait....after we move we will need to clean up this house after we have a huge moving sale. Downsizing by 1/2 presents the problem of what to take with us and what to get rid of. Soon this will all be a foggy memory!!
