Default The Painting is Done! Well, almost....

I am happy to announce that the painting of the 2 main rooms is done at last!
The kitchen, where everyone seems to gather down here, and the living room, which I couldn't stand another day looking at green walls, are finished.
With a lot of windows, doors, closets, and cabinets, it was a lot of tricky, finicky paint work, and very little heavy rollering, still, my body is feeling the aches and pains...
Here are the results:

The Living Room Being Primed


The Living Room Finished


Darker Wall in Living Room


Climbing on the Fridge to Paint the Kitchen


Kitchen Done, Teapots Back


Kitchen and Living Room


New Bedroom (didn't need painting)


My Reward, the Jacuzzi Bath!

Absolutely glorious! What a beautiful home you and James have Donna and what wonderful colors you chose!

Can't wait for even more!

Now, if I can only get Fran on top of the Fridge to do our kitchen.

What a wonderful difference (I don't particularly like green) and the colors you've chosen open the rooms up.

Just feel sorry for all your aches. Hopefully, your major projects are finished and you can just sit back and enjoy your home because it is lovely.

Thanks guys. I still have 2 bedrooms to go, but they're small and not so much finicky work. Then there's the hallways....they are dark and a dingey "baby diarrhea" colour - can't wait to lighten those up!

It all looks very nice and I am sure you feel quite proud to have done so much work yourself. Its not every one that would do all that work by themselves.
