|Welcome Home Greg Doucette!|
Yes, that's the events of last week that led to a very busy weekend and a few achy muscles - but those weren't too bad and the result is so worth it.
|The Original Color was a peach with wayyyy too much pink for Greg.|
The home was dirty, so Greg's home inspectors said "Just use a little Dawn, it'll clean this place right up for you." To which Greg responded, "Great, I'll call her right now." (Yep, no sense of humor here... no sireee!)
After seeing his thoughts on paint colors, then talking with him about how he wanted his rooms to feel when he comes in from work, or sits down to enjoy a weekend the "Wants" were very different than the colors he thought he wanted. He wanted a warm, cozy feel that allowed him to relax. But he really likes orange (Note: Blaze Orange was NOT painted in the kitchen)
So thus far, we got the kitchen painted (2 coats) from top to bottom - ceilings are the worst part of painting. We've got the paint for the living room and are playing with options for the color of the master bedroom. While I painted, mom cleaned and my dad with the brother-in-laws helped Greg install 2 new toilets and tear up stinky, icky carpet from the basement.
It's awesome to see the progress and even more awesome to share in one of the biggest moments of Greg's life! He's come such a long way in 8 years and I'm a beaming big sister right now!
|Love how Mulling Spice brings out the warm coloring in the floors and trim!|
