Do you want the good news or the bad news first?
Hmmm…bad news first then.
The bad news?
There is no painting of the month for April or May.
The good news?
I repainted the living and dining room of my home including the ceilings and walls. I’ve included a picture of the remodeling project to whet your curiosity about my mad house-painting skillz.
This is before the new paint color, but after the new light fixture was installed. Nightcrawler is also not yet back in his usual place on top of the light fixture to guard the house.
While discussing colors hubby says, “Let’s go with something neutral.” I’m a little surprised, but I agree and head off to the Orange Store to peruse samples. After hemming and hawing over the neutrals I pick out a brown/taupe and head back home. I also already own a few gallons of just slightly cream oops paint that may work out.
While my hubby is in another room, I paint on squares of the samples in our kitchen and living room. Unusual behavior for sure, I normally just pick a color and slap it on, but I think, “Hey, I’m progressing. I am becoming a Deck-o-raitor, a true artiste!”
Hubby comes out from the bedroom, stands still for a moment then states emphatically, “I hate brown.”
What’s even funnier? A few hours later he declares that the brown is growing on him.
That’s great, Mr. Let’s-Do-A-Neutral, ’cause I’ve already decided I’m proceeding with the taupe rather than the cream.
I do love the new color, even if it IS a neutral.
