And painted some more.
Half done the giant room now, yey!
I wussed out and put painter's tape over the baseboards and around the windows, no fuss no mess - just a bit time consuming but meh, whatever.
Two coats of Sico Supreme Pearl in Whalebone and wow, it's so gorgeous!
We love it :-)
It's a lot paler than we thought it would be but it fits the room beautifully.
Very serene, calming and zen.
Can't wait to see the room all done up with new furniture placement and all - this morning we sold the propane gas fireplace that took up a chunk of our living room so we now have both money and space for a long-awaited new couch - yippee!
Oh, and guess what:
Not hiring painters means money saved, which will go towards installing crown moldings - this room needs some classing up and it solved the stupid paint nightmare of ceiling lines! Woo!
Now... I ache in places I didn't know had
Holy mother of all pain.
Being both knackered, we ordered chinese food for dinner. Called it in at 5:44pm, the food arrived at 6:04pm - LOL! Of course it wasn't very good and totally not worth the money but some days you just gotta say f*ck it, you know? It was hot, it was plentiful and cleanup = paper bag in the trash. Win.
Tomorrow... There won't be any painting tomorrow, that's for Sunday.
Tomorrow is for errands, doggie TLC, potential company and maybe a bit of rest... It would be nice to sit outside in the sweet sun and read for a bit, cup of tea in hand.
I think I'll put that on the top of my list :-)
