As my Facebook status said...Give a girl a paint brush, a monster drink, an iPod full of music (mostly Christmas), and 9 hours...it will get a mostly painted interior house. I will not lie...I was exhausted & my body hurt. But, I just love it. I love taking a paint brush in hand and watch the walls come alive. Going from stark white to a nice rich color change.
With each paint stroke I could see the transformation taking place. I am loving every color I picked out. Tomorrow I will go in & finish the last 2 rooms of the 8 rooms I painted plus the living room, dining room & kitchen is complete. Not sure if you count them as 3 rooms in 1.
Our carpenter was there on Saturday starting to work on the trim. Hence why I wanted to start on the paint...before he put it up so I won't have to do as much cutting in. I felt bad that I was rocking out to some heavy duty Christmas tunes...lucky he's a nice guy & just went with it.
|Upstairs bathroom (girls bathroom). Color is Sierra Ridge|
|Common Area (and our bathroom are the same color). Color - Shabby Chic|
|Our room. Color - Mushroom Bisque|
|Girls room. Dormers will have ballet shoes painted on them. Color - Lily Lavender|
I am loving how the kitchen is turning out. Well to be honest..I am loving how the entire house is turning out. I think when all said & done it will be obvious that lots of thought, love & hard work has gone into this beauty.
|Kitchen. Color is Basketry.|
On Saturday night as I laid down to go to sleep, anxiety flooded over me. It made me nervous..my heart sank & I just lay there worried. I got up Sunday early to go get more painting completed. Again exhausted I laid down to go to sleep. Anxiety...big time. I realize that I am starting to put my own hands to work on this house, it has sucked me back in....I am very emotionally in love with our home. I am scared that I am going to drive up & it's going to be gone again. I am guessing this is normal.
The front of the house has been finished with the stone. It looks real purrrtty..
I just purchased the outside lights... Here is the stock photo. I think they will look nice.
And, two of these for our downstairs bath with the vintage crane pedestal sink.
Ahh the finishing touches.
Much love, peace & happiness!
