More progress has been made in the war on blue trim. The battle in the living room was completed yesterday and the results are pretty dramatic. We finished up the painting around noon and headed out to a volunteer activity with a few friends. We returned home pretty pooped. Laura crashed on the couch while I pulled the blue tape and put the furniture back together. My mom was coming over for brunch today and a little motivation seems to move us along towards wrapping up a major task such as this. Of course a few lessons were learned that will be applied on the next painting task in the living room. Another event is coming up at the end of the month so that goal seems pretty achievable.

We also received the blinds for the bedrooms on Friday so the master bedroom is now equipped with window coverings. I'm sure the neighbors are just as excited as we are.

Looking into the dining room from the living room you can see the blue paint and the new and improved white.

The fireplace built-in less the cabinet doors.

The master bedroom complete with blinds. A few more items to go but now way more livable.

Paintin' again

We officially have one room painted, trim and all! It's our bedroom and it feels nice to have all of the drop cloths and paint rags out of the bedroom. Now, if we only had blinds for our windows! And a door!

We spent the rest of the weekend trying to finish up the living room too. It's about one coat away from complete. Hopefully we'll find time this week to apply that coat. We'll have to touch up the wall color too.

That Tink, she's a good little helper.
Me too!
The bedroom trim, all painted up and ready for a door!
