Where to begin? Painting has been an absolute nightmare. Lucky for us it is now a nightmare for the professionals. Best phone call we ever made. Remember when Jace gave it a good try upstairs? Well, apparently we were sold the wrong primer. You can almost peel the paint off the doors in one sheet. The paint store has graciously offered to pay to have the doors and beams (yes, Dad I painted all the beams) redone. Sweet of them, don't you think?
And a funny thing about the cabinet paint color. I racked my brain. I carried a folder full of paint swatches around in my car for months. I studied blogs and magazines, looking for the perfect green. First is was avocado green. Then dark teal green. Nothing felt right. Then I found it. Woodsmoke green. It was gray-green and it felt good - it felt familiar. Well it wasn't until I came home after purchasing 5 gallons of very expensive cabinet paint that I figured it out. Bingo! It is almost exactly the same color as my cabinets in my downtown house I'm living in! What? How could I have done that? It's not that I don't like the color because I do but I was definately trying for something different in Mi Casa. Sheesh. I've lost it. And it could have something to do with these little people right here:
|My 2nd grader is now bigger than my 4th grader|
And my baby took 2 naps. In her crib. This is huge people! And I actually accomplished something. I set up our new wireless printer. It took me all day. But I did it. I haven't felt this good about an accomplishment since.....since....last May.
Perhaps I should have waited to pick out paint colors until yesterday.
The fog is lifting. I can feel it. I'm going to be a new, home designing, task tackling woman.
p.s. The painters are promising to get some of that dark navy blue up on the walls today. Can't wait to show you.
