Sweat Equity, Literally.

12 Jul

The good news is that wall right there is finished. We love the color. We started the project that  morning and finished that afternoon. This is great news. The bad news is that we have a lot more walls to go!

Monday afternoon we finished the tile in the kitchen and hallway and finished and started the tile in the back mudroom.   While Matt was busy doing that, I took to painting with 2 good friends (thanks, Molly and Annie!).  Luckily for me they both have more experience painting than I do – Molly could be considered an expert in painting old paneling. We were able to complete the ‘accent’ wall in the living room (Clary Sage by Sherwin Williams) and also to get the first coat on the cabinets (Softened Green by Sherwin Williams).

I was pleasantly surprised at how well everything turned out but still a little undecided about how everything will fit together.  Spending some more time this week figuring out decorating schemes for the bathroom, dining room and kitchen. Even more importantly, we will hopefully be making a decision on our electrician!
