Do you see the difference between the first and the second picture? No?
Here, let me help you....The walls are painted!
We had the walls painted 18 months after we moved. We wanted to get it done very earlier. I had plans to do it
myself ourselves and Mr. Tweaks wanted to have it done professionally since this room has high ceiling and even if I had the tallest ladder to paint, I am scarred of heights and also being vertically challenged, I would ask beg hubs to help me.
So, finally 18 months later, I agreed to get the paint done for the whole house except our son's room and the guest bedroom (I am yet to share this room).
Mr. Tweaks and me had finalized on the "Dolphin Dance" color from Sherwin Williams. I had to show lots and lots of pictures in this color shade to convince hubby to agree. And I should say I did a good job at it.
Couple week before the painters were supposed to come, I was talking to my mother back home. I mentioned to her about getting the house painted for the long weekend. She asked about the color and I said, "grey". She said, "like cement color?" (in India, the houses are made of brick and cement, and the color of the cement is grey).
And a week later, when I called home to talk, she asked, if we still were going with the "cement color". I decided not to call her till the painters finish their job.
But something kept bothering me and when I checked with Mister if we could go for a lighter color than what we selected, he happily agreed. I guess even he had that "cement color" doubt. Anyways, we went with "Heirloom Silver".
They moved the furniture's to the center of the room, removed the window coverings, covered the carpets with plastic and after the painting, moved everything back to its place before they left.
I would have taken couple more years to finish painting the whole house.
Remember seeing those 4 cushions on the sofa here. I had picked these inner cushions at IKEA during one of my visits.
Will be back soon with more changes.
This was my last blog posting for 2013!
See you all in 2014.
Have a wonderful week ahead.
