Primed


In the top photo you can tell just how pink all of the trim is, and yes, it's all over the house. I'm not so confident in my painting skillz to attempt to do the doors and trim yet. (However, seeing it in a picture like this, I may just have to bite the bullet and attempt it because that is gross.) When I was painting today I was worried that I would need to put up a third coat of primer, but now that it's dry it looks ok. So tomorrow I'll go to the blue big box home store and get my color and check out accessories while I'm there. A medicine cabinet and a light fixture are the number one concerns, I think, after the paint. It would be nice to be done tomorrow since I have a meeting here on Friday night and would like to get a few things done in the rest of the house by then. (Looking at these pictures again maybe I should save my pennies for a new countertop. That thing in ugly, isn't it? *sigh* I guess I'll have to wait on that. Paint I can afford. Counter top? Not so much.)

Mojitos, here I come!

Aaaand, well, I hope you already know what you mean to me.

If not, may I remind you about Chicago...last summer?

Love you, girl!

Hmm, can I hire you to do my house? We just moved in and it looks fairly awful.
