Teen2's room is almost all painted and I'd forgotten how much I enjoy painting. Used to be I rarely went a day without a paint brush in my hand. But that was waaaay back when we painted signs and I worked in production. Now they are all vinyl and I work in the office anyway, so no chance of touching a brush. And I miss it. I miss the soothing repetition of stroking paint on, the wandering thoughts that purely physical work induces, and the satisfaction of seeing the finished project at the end of the day. *sigh* If I had two weeks at home alone I think I could get the whole cottage painted, but darn it, I have to go to work every day!
Two walls are all double coated and I think I can finish up tomorrow. But we couldn't wait; we had to put the new bedding on the finished side. And it looks striking, doesn't it? Teen2 loves it so that's good. The blinds should arrive in about a week, try to imagine silver blinds on the windows instead of the chintz curtains. We are still looking for a desk and a chair. And the flooring issue requires more research, but basically I'm pleased with our progress. I'll keep you posted and thanks for all the input.
