Still painting...

Friday, August 03, 2012

Well, take two on the kitchen/dinette is going slowly. The ceiling is done and I'm now working on edges for the new color (which, by the way, is so similar to the original color that it's hard to see where I've painted and where I haven't).

May the Lord BLESS the person who said that painting IS exercise! I've thought of them with gratitude each time I've gone up and down the ladder.

I'll be glad when this project is done because I don't think I want to see a paint brush again for a long, long time.

I'm trying to run a 5K three times a week with all of this painting going on. As soon as it's over I'll get back to my dumbbells, hopefully with a new enthusiasm.

Maine is only a few weeks away at this point and I doubt I'll meet that elusive 139 lbs goal. The kitchen has been a mess with the project and I haven't been eating very well.

But, at least the kitchen/dinette will look nice!

Grace,
Elisabeth

    I'll take that blessing because I know from experience. I don't know how you manage, I really don't, except that I have a few years on you. When you are done with this remake project, you can tell your men you need breakfast in bed. My muscles would be so sore.
I always wanted the house to look nice and fresh. That is the satisfaction you will have, along with a surprising buffer look to the lower body to give you legs to run your competition. I can't get hubby to paint. We are going to hire someone so this is why I am stoked for you! A trip down memory lane. emoticon

    I know how you feel with that paintbrush. When we totally gutted our kitchen, I decided to go with a totally different color! SO glad I did,, It was so easy to see spots that I missed. I hope you show pics next time!!

I also saw something in Architectural Digest: When painting the ceiling, before the walls, you paint a 1/4 inch down below the ceiling,(onto the wall) white,(tape it off) then paint your walls their color. IT adds some detail without having to add crown molding, it draws the eye up and around, making your room appear higher and longer!
Looks nice..
Cannot wait to see your results!
