Painting started this morning. My painter told me he would have the whole house done in two days. I will be completely shocked if this is true. It would take me upwards of a month to paint my house. Granted I am lazy and can easily become un-motivated, and no one would be paying me, but still two days? I think someone needs to have a talk with this guy about overstating estimated completion time to keep the customer happy.
Anyway, final color winners are as follows (all by Martha Stewart)
All-over color: Driftwood grey
Guest bed: Rainwater
Guest bath: Spring Melt
Kitchen, Dining, and Living: Driftwood grey
Powder bath: Spring Melt
Fireplace accent: Schoolhouse slate
Master bed: Grey Squirrel
Master bath: Spring Melt
Office: Schoolhouse slate
I am really trying hard to stay away from my house until after work today. The dogs are cooped up over at Wes’ apartment, so I will need to go check on them over there at lunch, but it will take everything in my power to not swing by my house as well. But, I really want to be surprised by the finished product, and am scared seeing the halfway points might be a bit alarming, so it is probably best to avoid the house.
I’m so excited!!!
And, on a random sidenote, please be careful my New York friends…. a crazy cobra snake is on the loose. Read this! That would be enough to make me stay indoors all week.
