The inside of the box is getting some much needed updating.
After accepting the fact that we will not pull out the painting supplies anytime soon due to lack of interest in the work of it, we found a team of awesome painter ladies… that’s right, a couple of girls that paint houses. They are young women that are not afraid of sandpaper, caulk and wood putty, paint machines, long pole rollers, and tall ladders with scaffolding, and know how to use all of these. Plus, these women have the organization and management skills to make them better than great! The ‘painter ladies’ as we call them, showed up every morning exacting on time with a plan to complete the work in an organized fashion. Starting with the upstairs mouldings and stair banister, then the second story ceilings, and today they will start the walls.
(althou, I am responsible for the Daughter’s name painted on the wall in the test color… hoping I didn’t set a precedence that gets her in trouble later)
|yes, that is track lighting at the top of the stairs…
no offense to track lighting lovers, but it is not going back up
|see the year’s worth of color testing on the walls|
Here are the paint colors we selected… quite different from orange.
I am anxious to show off the results at the end of the week. And will be so happy to have this paint job off the box-to-do-list!
