I learned a lot about myself during these weeks.
-I have no patience for painting.
-I do not like to make decisions.
-I do not like to buy things sight unseen.
I learned some other thing along the way too. Did you know that you cannot paint with latex paint over something that was previously painted with oil-based paint? Well, you can't. What I still don't know is how you're supposed to tell if there is oil-based paint on said doors and trim.
I also learned that blue painters tape really only works if you're able to put it on straight. And, if you're able to do that, you're probably able to paint a straight line anyway, so why not just forgo using the darn tape in the first place?
Another thing I learned is that electricians charge WAY too much to install a ceiling exhaust fan. And why do I need one in the powder room anyway? It's not like anyone is taking showers in there!
So, without further ado.....
The picture above the toilet is actually an Andrew Wyeth painting called Geraniums. My Dad bought it for me a few years ago and was a little hurt I think that I had it in the powder room. Now, I think it looks great with the paint color and the farmhouse feel I was going for.
I am still trying to decide what to put in the 4 framed one. Any ideas? Something with the four seasons maybe?
For a trip down memory lane, here are Day One, Two, and ???
I'll sign off with a Before and After Shot.
