~Paint, paint, paint~
I am still trying to decide if I like the golden paint. Is it yellow, gold, mustard, or a combination of all three? I like it from different angles. What's funny is that I was afraid I wouldn't like the green. I love the green! My husband tells me I'll like the, um, other color (I don't know what to call it???)
This is even funnier: Whenever we paint, or work on a room, we discover that the room was previously green (a very ugly color of green!). For instance: the insides of the cabinets, the kitchen, the bathroom, the hallway going down to the basement, the sewing room, the living room, the dining room. Seriously, everything was painted the same shade of green (even the trim). Think 1950's green. They must have gotten a great deal on green paint!. I've been astonished that someone would paint everything green. And then it dawned on me...I was painting the dining room green. I imagine the homeowners who painted everything green would really like the dining room! LOL
Anyhow, we have one more coat of paint in each room. We'll do that on Saturday. After that: refinish the floor, prime and paint the trim, and install the trim. We have a lot of work done, a lot more to go!
