Okay this house was alive with energy today as cabinets were being painted, drywall was being put up and I was busy painting my knobs that came in the mail today. They did a good job and of course when I was watching they showed off trying to impress me. Testosterone does a funny thing to men. LOL
This is what they did:
Install the drywall on the ceiling and mud it
reroute electrical lines in the ceiling
This is the boss…he didn’t really do anything but get the supplies and made sure everyone was on task and look cute. I like being the boss LOL.
So now its the end of the day and I am back to living in a maze…its going to be so nice not to have to move things around anytime I want to do something.
Looking at the cabinets against the wall I am not really feeling this butter cookie color on the walls with the cream in my coffee cabinets. That distresses me because I looooove both colors, just not together. Well the cream in my coffee stays. I might have to repaint the kitchen back to the LaFonda Boulder color but this time don’t make it half and half…I am not sure at this very moment.
OK so now its my turn to work on my list. When they walk in the door on Monday I want to WOW them in some kind of way. I am not sure how I am going to WOW them but something has GOT to WOW them.
I am not all that rested but I did sleep on the couch for about 2 hours today while they were working. I sure hope I did not snore…LOL
I have to go to Wal-Mart to get some very small paintbrushes. Remember I am hand-painting my knobs?
When I went to Home Depot last night I found this paint set of 12- 2.5 oz bottles for $4.99!! I am not sure if 42 cents a bottle is a deal or not but I think it is. Plus now I don’t have to stand in the store trying to decide on colors and I can be as colorful as I wanna be. I am not sure if I want to do one pattern for drawers, one for doors or if I want to make them all the same or all different. Since they are going to be hand-painted it might be too hard to do 20 knobs exactly the same. I will plan this in my head on the way to the store. AND I HAVE LOTS OF COLORS TO PLAY WITH!!
Updates to follow tomorrow
PS…I am going to kill Bear. OMG while I was typing and not paying attention to him he got to my box of left over knobs that I was already making plans for in my head and he chewed everyone of them up. He is on punishment again. UGGGGGH…sometimes having a dog is like having a toddler in the house…
PPS It was really nice to have some work being done round this joint and it wasn’t just me doing all the work.
