I spent the week painting. We had a number of unfinished projects that included walls, ceilings, and trim. I didn't complete everything that I would like to do, but I finished more than I expected to. It wasn't the most exciting paint job. Dramatic color changes are fun. Subtle color changes, not so much.
|Ceiling and trim done|
Over the last three years, we've been slowly repainting everything from the original color that the builder painted it (off-white) to Behr's ultra pure white. There are two reason for this: 1) I don't really like the original off-white color and 2) the original paint doesn't stand up very well to the kind of scrubbing that removes the kids' dirt.
|Partially down the walls (painting the top of the room first)...|
Both Fritz and I felt really happy with our respective change of pace. Sometimes you don't need a trip out of town, or a night out, or even a day of pampering to feel refreshed. You just need a change in routine.
|Finished! Whiter! Easier to clean! And something to show for my week!|
