We bought this house in December, 2011, but we didn’t move in until we got back from Arizona at the end of October, 2012. We had lots of plans to do some remodeling, or redecorating in the house, but then life happened and we had to scale back a bit. I think we have done pretty well with the short time we have been actually living in the house. Especially when you think about that we have gotten it all done with Thanksgiving, Christmas, and numerous doctor visits going on around us.
Here is what the room looked like berfore Fabgrandpa started painting:
It was a hideous color of yellow. The sun coming in through the window is great, but the more sun there was, the more yellow the room looked, and it actually hurt my eyes to look at it. Not to mention that the room was stacked up with my stuff in no particular order.
Fabgrandpa used to do some painting with a company he worked for, so he didn’t think that 4 quarts of paint would cover the little bedroom I am using for an office and sewing room.
But, when he was finished with the job, he said that this was a very good paint, and the 4 quarts covered the 8’X10′ room quite well. He also liked the way the paint went on the wall. It dried to a uniform color all around the room.
I love the way it looks so fresh and peaceful now. Fabgrandpa helped me put all my things in order, and now even though I need some storage options for this room, I can sit in a relaxing atmosphere and it doesn’t hurt my eyes.
After working for me for two days to get this room in shape, the man deserves not only an AttaBoy! but also a nap in the recliner:
If you could redo just one room in your house, which one would it be? What would you have to do to get it in the shape you want it to be in?
