Hello friends. How is everyone doing? Well I hope. I’m well too. Thanks for asking. :) We have two weeks of summer left and I honestly can’t believe how quickly it has flown by. I was so hoping we would be moving before the new school year started but alas, it is not going to happen. Instead I think we will be moving a few weeks after the new school year starts. You know. When we are right smack in the middle of back to school night and beginning of the year get to know you projects and 10 BILLION forms that need to be filled out and sent back in. Good times ahead for sure! Our painters just finished today and are cleaning up tomorrow. Then we have only a few weeks to the finish line! I can’t wait. I’m excited about the house but even more excited to be DONE building the house. :)
Here are a few pics I took last week of the paint progress…
All ceilings I kept white except the formal living room ceiling you see right when you walk in the house. I chose a darker grey for inside the box beam ceiling in this room. This first picture was the ceiling with just one coat of paint.
This is Addison’s room. Oh my word. We had quite a time figuring out paint for the girls rooms. My plan was to pick colors (and bedding) out myself knowing that the girls would be happy with whatever I came up with. But Kenny thought the girls should have more ownership in the process and should pick everything out themselves. Right up until Ellie started talking about panda wallpaper and my little pony bedding. That’s when I sat back and smiled. Kenny looked at me like “oh crap” and I looked at him like “see – told you.” :) SO! We told the girls they could pick out the color they wanted for their walls (mom picked the samples) and then they can help with a few other future decisions. It was a nice compromise for all parties involved. :)
Addison really wanted a blue wall and I love the way her color turned out. It’s bold, but not too crazy and I know it’s going to be a fun backdrop for decorating! I tend to lean more towards blue/green colors myself so I knew I’d like the color she picked.
I told Kenny that we may be sleeping on a mattress on the floor for a few years because the girls’ rooms are going to take priority over ours! I can’t wait to decorate them. Kid spaces are so much fun. And yes. You know me. I am equally excited to go to town organizing those closets! :)
I’ve loved seeing the process of painting all of the doors. Doors were placed in various rooms in big circles held together by a piece of wood and nails at the top.
This was just one coat so it’s a bit brighter now.
