The house is nearly all painted now! Zach and his brother were busy beavers while I was down and out with the flu. It’s amazing what a power roller will do for a man who otherwise hates painting! Tools. They are a man’s best friend; or maybe a girl’s best friend? Either way, that thing is awesome.
Here are a few of the before and during shots. The living room was mauve and dusty pale pink before, as was the hallway. The kitchen and dining room were just white. Plain, bright, white. Makes me stressful, too much white I tell ya! It is now red. I’ve always wanted a red kitchen! One bedroom was Yellow. Bright canary sort of yellow. I like yellow, but this was much too bright for me. Besides I’ve always wanted a green bedroom, so green was what I got! Whoo hoo! So let’s get started seeing these transformations!

The living room during:
The two peachy cream colored walls are going to have glaze applied to them (I hope to have at least one of them completed today). The glaze is tinted the same color of red (actually it’s Eddie Bauer Sienna, for you paint freaks!) as the back wall in the living room (the one with the single window). Zach is planning a massive built-in on that wall to include a computer desk, floor to ceiling shelves and we’re putting in an electric fireplace, because I LOVE having a mantle. It just doesn’t feel like *home* without one!
So as not to bore you futher, stay tuned for more photos of the renovation! I’m off to glaze a wall or two!
