Hello, hello, hello! While today and tomorrow are designated work days for us, I wanted to pop in to share the progress we made with the painting yesterday. I got all the border down (finally!) and had the painting started by the time hubby returned from work. We worked late into the night to apply the two coats of Sherwin Williams Peppercorn paint to the walls and a fresh coat of white to the ceiling (turns out the old owners had tan paint on the ceiling in this room too.) Nothing like a midnight painting party to inspire some productivity!
We're loving the deep, moody gray. We're also loving the way the yellow oak cabinets look next to it. Yes, the cabinets just gained a little more respect from yours truly. And Mike is glad, he loves that oak.
Note, the baseboard and trim around the windows and door will be painted white (that was our compromise--I got to paint all the trim but promised to leave the oak.) We'll be pulling the baseboard up before we lay the new flooring, labeling them and painting them in the garage before re-installing them sometime in the future.
Ok, hubby says I need to get back to work. Ta ta for now!
