Karen hasn't really been after me to get the room painted, but we've been in the home for over three years now and have lived with a green wall speckled with gold-leaf like foil spots, off-set with white walls filled with holes from nails and screws.
Bottom line: It was time for a change.
So herewith are the pictures, before and after as best as I could manage. I can post them tonight and then will wait a few days to post the blog and link to Facebook (since Karen gets home tomorrow evening and I want her to see it first).
The BEFORE Pictures
|Bay window (plain white before)|
|Northeast corner (green with gold speckles before)|
|Northwest corner (white before)|
|Southwest corner (white before)|
(You can see our small patch of test color choices)
|The green and gold wall|
(AFTER covering with two coats of white paint)
The AFTER Pictures
|Northeast corner AFTER|
|Northwest corner AFTER|
|Southwest corner AFTER|
|Southeast corner AFTER|
(I was unable to get the same angled
picture of the bay window after the
painting because of the sunlight)
Song Of The Day:
I truly love my sweet wife and have missed her while she has been gone this past week. It was easier to paint with her and the kiddos gone, but I thought of her (and her anticipated reaction) while I spent many hours painting, taping, re-painting, touching up, and then rearranging the room.
To my Pretty Lady, it is true that I would do "Anything For You" (even though Gloria Estefan's song by the same name is more about lost love, the title certainly applies here!)
