We got two coats of paint on the master bedroom this week/weekend. Here's a before and after:
What we did: removed 3 kinds of wallpaper, spackled, sanded, primed, painted 2 coats on the ceiling, and painted 2 coats on the walls of Behr's "Dusty Olive."
It turned out really well. As we started painting, I was worried it was going to be too evergreen, but the color dried to a nice green with blue/grey undertones.
Sunday, I drove out to the house, but I just didn't have it in me. I putzed around for a while, cleaned a few things, thought about painting a third coat on the kitchen, and ended up outside, hacking the last of the ice off the driveway from the freezing rain the weekend before.
Then I headed back to the condo, edited a manuscript for a while, and watched a movie with the husband.
We're feeling close to being ready to move in, and we have a couple people lined up who would like to rent the condo, so just pray that everything goes smoothly over the next month or so, especially since my husband has started working a few hours at his summer job, and therefore is even more busy!
And, my evenings are so busy, I won't be at the house again this week until Thursday. Eek. Well, it will get done eventually, one way or the other. Wish us luck as we start the final push! :-)
