So the final coats of paint are going up in my house as we speak. And since this is my business, I am confident that the colours I chose are right. And as each room gets completed I am filled with happiness.
So it got me to thinking. How on earth could anyone watch paint colours going up in their own home without being clear and confident that those colours are right?
Bad colour is very upsetting. I only specified crown molding in my living/dining room because I wanted to paint the ceiling blue and it looks way better defined with molding and you know what happened? The illusion of the blue ceiling made my crown look completely different (way creamier) from the rest of the casings. So it’s being painted AGAIN. But I know exactly what to do when that happens because I’ve seen it before. (pics coming soon)
You’ve never heard the words ‘It’s only paint’ on this blog because it’s soooo not just paint. It’s colour, and colour that’s wrong in many homes is VERY expensive to fix. What about trim colour ALONE? A fortune to change if it’s wrong and your house is big. But I digress.
I got out to my renovation-in-progress-house on Friday after being away in New York for Blogfest for most of the week and Elizabeth said ‘William is counting the days until you move to Yarrow’.
So when I saw him I said “how many days until we move?” And he said Four!!
I said “How do you know it’s four days?”
He said “Because we count all day“.
My sister said “it’s true, about every hour he mentions it”.
This, my lovelies is the biggest reason why driving into Vancouver a couple times a week from the country will be so worth it for me. I get to be close to my nephews whom I love so much!!
So get some advice before you paint. Colour on the biggest square footage in your home that is wrong will BUG you until the end of time!! Take this from me the NEW homeowner. yaay!
