So let the fun begin......
Excuse this dark grainy photo. It is dark and rainy today. This is where Mr. Savvy started fixing a huge
crack in the wall last night. You see that tall wall. That is the wall I don't climb up to. Nope, Mr. Savvy gets
those honors. I do the lower parts and I will get on the eight foot ladder, but not that one. The wall looks yellow here, but it isn't.
This tall wall in the foyer is his job, too and the stair well.
Here is another crack he is working on. I am glad all these things will be fixed. That is the sanding
block sitting there.
I had so much fun choosing a color yesterday. NOT! I had to make three trips to the store that is twenty minutes away. These walls may not look it in my photos, but they are that horrid pinky beige and it has to go.
The dark color there is the first one I tried. I liked it wet, but it got too dark when dry. Then I went and got what I thought was the right color and tried it there next to the dark and it is too light and too yellow.
Made a third trip back and had the guy add some black and red and now I think I finally got it right. Not a huge difference, but it has more yellow undertones instead of pink.
We have to paint the great room, foyer, little hall by the powder room, stair well and upstairs hall.
Mr. Savvy said don't get in a rush and take your time. I said no, once I start I want to keep on painting till it is finished. I am not dragging this mess out. I cannot stand for my house to be a wreck like this.
I will be here and I will check in periodically in the blogosphere. We have a graduation to go to in the morning which will deter my progress for a little bit. I will have another small post in the morning for my friend Debbiedoos linky party.
Hope everyone has a better weekend than I will be having. Hey, I know all of you come over and we will have a paint party!!
Y'all come back now,
