The new house is larger than our current abode and we'll have lots of bare walls, and empty rooms. I am ready for the challenge of decorating our new home and tackling my husbands fear of color. Join me for the adventure.
Our first project, actually there are quite a few.
1. Buy a refrigerator
2. Buy a dishwasher
3. Buy a washer and dryer
4. Fix the garbage disposal
5. Do the courtyard, current state dirt and old unfinished concrete
6. Do the backyard, current state weeds, look like a forest of them, dirt and old unfinished concrete
7. Patch up walls with puddy and paint, where needed
8. Carpets cleaned
9. Carpet fixed, master bedroom is loose.
10. Order window coverings
My main focus on the new house is paint. I have lived for the last five years with cream walls. My husband dosen't like color, or I should say, he likes muted colors so I have let him have his way.
Now it's my turn.
To start here are the rooms we're painting.
1. Master bedroom + suite
Color: Silver Sage by Restoration Hardware
2. Jakes room
Color: Asparagus by Behr
3. The boys bathroom
Color: Sea Sprite by Behr
We began prepping our bedroom the other day and spent more than 5 hours doing this. It is a large space but we are clearly not skilled at painting, at least in a time crunch. After much consideration we decided to hire Paul the Painter. I have faith that he'll do a far better job than us.
I'll post pics once the rooms are done.
