The contractor came and took off the existing window casings and baseboards, and the painters took over by painting the walls in the great room with a new color to replace the off-white that was there before. What a change that made! It is so cozy and warm. I can’t wait for the wider width woodwork to be installed. It will give a more substantial look to this large room that has 18 foot high ceilings.
Of course,the project brought chaos with it! Existing furniture is placed in several other rooms throughout the house. Artwork is in closets and propped up against walls. Ladders and drop cloths abound!
And as always, one thing leads to another! I’m having two other rooms re-painted while the painters are still here. I’m going into our furniture store to order new sofas, tables, and lamps. And I’m going NUTS! I work best under pressure and a deadline; but this deadline includes a houseguest in a couple of weeks. Dan’s California girlfriend will be coming to visit! She is a sweet girl and I think she’ll understand that the house might not be thoroughly complete and that there might be a few obstacles in the house. I just hope that those obstacles don’t include tripping over boards, paint buckets, and workmen in her room!
