Painting in our New House

September 19th, 2009 by Jason
We spent most of the day today painting our living room. Shannon’s friend Andrea is out visiting us for a few days, so we got her involved too. The main living/dining room was a cold blue and terrible mint green that made us think of the dentist, so we’ve re-painted it with a grey and warmer orangy brown. The trim and doors were a few different shades of cream and white too, so it’s been nice to re-paint that and make it look all the same colour.
Painting the living room "Grey Mare" - looks blue, though.

    The paint job looks great you guys! Are you painting the baby’s room too? It reminded me of painting our old house to get ready to sell. Good thing you’re painting it right away so you are the ones who get to enjoy it!

    Looks awesome! I’d love a skype tour sometime but I can’t wait to see it in person ….

    The finished products looks sharp! It must be exciting to make your own home a little more your own by dressing it up with your chosen colours.

    I see Shannon painting in those pictures. When we were painting our change-table when I was pregnant, Jeff made me wear one of those terrible filter masks. Made my face sweat terribly 🙁

    The colours look fabulous. I wouldn’t have expected anything less from you guys – absolutely beautiful! Can’t wait to see it in a week.
