I had to stop work on the inside last week to address the outside, thanks to the friendly HOA that insisted I clean up the exterior. So my son Anthony and I pressure washed the house, then I spent the week painting. I couldn't match the yellow of the siding on the main house, so I decided to go brighter on the addition. You can't really tell from the picture, but the color, Behr Ultra 400A-3 Pear, almost glows neon in the sun. I love it!
|See the difference in the new color (brighter) vs the old, faded color?|
This is where I left off inside before I was so rudely interrupted by the HOA nasti-gram;
|Drywall is up and mudded in master bedroom. Awaiting priming and paint, then on to the new floors.|
|The guest bedroom has been doubling as a furniture storage room. Check out my bed from Goodwill and the sewing cabinet. Can you just imagine how cute they'll be painted?|
After taking a couple of days off to catch up on some Crystal Creation orders for Nancy Dunn's new garden shop in Raleigh (more on that later), I plan to put in a full day tomorrow, priming all the new drywall, hanging the beadboard wallpaper for the wainscoting in the guest bedroom, and hopefully getting some paint on the walls. My plan is to be ready to lay the new wood floors this weekend. Then I can concentrate on finishing the kitchen.
