I sure hope I can continue to live up to your expectations, living vicariously through me may be/could be an excruciating process! I'm getting motivated again to get back down there to start again.
My wife came home yesterday from Lowe's with a bazillion paint samples. She laid them all out and then said "hey why don't you try to pick the ones I like" Sheesh.....I would have had better luck picking the winning lottery numbers. We wanted to come up with a scheme we have not used before so that sort of limits our options. We have done a combination in differen rooms of the house of blues, browns/reds, greens/reds. yellow/white, and faux finishes so we are trying to be creative and tasteful in our application too.
BTW who comes up with all of these paint names....Cowboy Boots, Thunder Gray, Fishnet, Book Cloth Brown, Chocolate Curl..........makes your head spin, and to top it all off she made mention of going carpet shopping today too. AAAAAACK!!!!!!!!! I'm not ready for that anguish yet! Information overload!!!!!!
On a sad note my drywaller showed up yesterday to finish and prime, got his spraying equipment set up made a couple of passes and his sprayer "exploded" (according to the wife) and he had packed up and was gone by the time I got home. I called him and he is not happy about the situation (obviously) but I think he is more stressed about the delay in getting my job done and of course the cost of the repair to the sprayer. I have a couple of options to explore, but I want what is best for both of us since he has done an excellent job and gave me a big break already on his labor costs.
Now off to start sanding on my doors.
