No photo today because our remodeling project has reached a stage where there's not much to see. The sheetrock is up and mudded, the knockdown texture on the ceiling is finished, and there's a nice, solid new sub-floor down. Yawn.
I did notice that they have the paint purchased. I'm looking forward to seeing what the room looks like once it's painted and the trim and flooring are in. The whole room should be complete by mid-week next week.
The last time we had some remodeling done, it spurred me to repaint our living room. The painting bug has bitten me again, but this time it's in relation to our kitchen. Once I realized that the hated paneling we removed from our new TV room was the same as the wainscoting paneling in our kitchen, I started thinking about how icky and unlikeable it is in that context as well. I'm not about to re-panel the bottom two-thirds of our kitchen walls, but it occurred to me that I could paint the paneling and refresh the look of the kitchen a bit.
Someday we'll gut the kitchen and start over, but until that magical day comes, I'm contenting myself with incremental improvements. I have a pocketful of paint chips to take home and hold up against the painted wall and slate tile to see what I think. Right now I'm torn between something grey or a copper-y color.
Of course, the last thing I need right now is another time-sucking project, so I might just let this one percolate in my brain until later on. Or I might wake up early on Saturday, buy all the supplies, and have it done by the time my husband wakes up that afternoon. Guess we won't know until it happens.
