Painting is on hold

No painting as of late.  Why I have been sidetracked lately…

Kitchen/hallway wall

The big wall in the kitchen hallway is on its way.  Over the past eight years we have used this wall for hanging coats, hats, mittens, and the like.

Soon it will be something we won’t try to cover.

The first interior project

We have started working on the interior projects that we wanted to start eight years ago.  Why the delay?  Children.  Two of them.  Two very active little boys who demand all of our time.

The first interior project on the list….. PAINting.  Something we wanted to do right from the start but never got around to.  You see, every room is beige. I know, some people like beige, but this is beige o’ many colors.  All beige, but a different shade of beige.  And EVERYTHING was painted.  I’m talking walls, windows, woodwork, register covers, doors, hinges, doorknobs, lightswitch plates, outlets… you name it, it was painted.

I guess my frustration would not be so severe, but the PAINting was done so poorly that the detail in the wood has disappeared in some places.  I’m not kidding – the detail is gone!
