First, thank you for all of your lovely and supportive comments and e-mails about yesterday’s post. I am glad you are as excited about the new adventure as I am!
After picking up some paint samples today, I chucked Connor in the car and drove up to the new house. He’s so dramatic, resting his chin on the window of the car, and rolling his eyes and sighing heavily at everyone who cooed at him.
I picked two colours from Valspar to check on the walls (and of course, I can’t remember their names!). Valspar has a page on FB where until recently, you could choose a paint sample and they’d send it to you, along with a tray and rollers, and some coupons. This picture looks horrible, but it was the only way I could get the colours to show up! The two middle shades are the full colour and the ones on the ends are cut in half with white. I am leaning towards the 1@.5 shade. These are all semi-gloss, but I think I’d rather have an eggshell finish. I’ve been carrying this rug around in the back of my station wagon for weeks now. It’s a needlepoint rug with a brown and black background. Because all of the floors are hardwood, I really need lots of rugs to cover. I am not sure if this is the final resting spot for this, but it’s there now.
Connor seemed to love the house, running through the first floor, and then up the stairs to the second floor, checking out each room and running down the long hall. We went into the back yard, but as it’s not been mowed for a while, it was above his shoulders.
More to some! Stay tuned.
