We went to Home Depot yesterday and picked up some supplies for our weekend project. We discovered that we had enough paint left over from another project (Sissy's bedroom and the hallway) and we like the color. It's called Cotton Whisper and it's an ivory with just a hint of yellow in it. Cheery and neutral - all at the same time!
We ran into a little blip on painting the kitchen/dining room area. The areas above the cabinets hold recessed lights. We thought it was drywall under there, but it turns out it's just plain wood. Sensing that we wouldn't really be happy with raw wood with paint over it, we decided the best course of action there would be to just primer and paint right over the wallpaper.
We'll glue down any small pieces that are buckling and try to minimize the seams. What can ya do? I'd like to remove the paper and have drywall done, but since I'm cheap, that won't be happening. :-)
I did get video footage of the Before for Sissy's closet:
I also got a Before shot of the Dining Room kitchen area getting taped and later, he put down paper on the floors. The Evil Twin is already making excellent progress as I type:
We're expecting the closet system from EasyClosets today. It will arrive by UPS in 10 cartons for a total weight of 300lbs. I cannot say enough good things about this company: The design software is so easy to use, I called to speak to a designer and he offered some tips and added to the design. Super nice guy. And, shipping is free.
The product is not the cheapest on the market, nor is it the most expensive, but it is durable and has a lifetime warranty for as long as we own the home (forever, probably LOL).
I just have to find the light fixture I want for the Kitchen, and we're good to go. The Home Depot we went to yesterday only had one and it was opened. The Evil Twin does not buy opened merchandise, so I am going to another HD today and see if they have it.
Since the kitchen is all jacked up, it looks like we'll be eating lots of fast food or pizza for a few days. That's okay - we rarely ever do, and this counts as extenuating circumstances.
Have a great Friday and an even better weekend, my sweet hooligans!
