Sunday I was determined to make some more headway and I skipped church and started in around 10:00 taping up the newly painted trim. Then I set to work on painting the rest of the walls in the big room the gold color that I had chosen. I went on yellow but dried to a pretty mustardy gold. Yum! I got pretty much all of it done except for where the fish tank and the terrarium are. Last night Jim was able to move the fish tank and tonight Tim is coming home to move the terrarium, so I'll be able to finish the rest of that wall. Then all I'll have left to do is the hallway and stairwell and the trim in the stairwell. The only thing that worries me is the stairwell as it will be really difficult to get to the top of the walls and do it neatly because of the stairs. I'll have to set up some kind of scaffold and try like heck not to hurt myself. Ha! Here's the before pictures:
This picture shows the wall that is the accent wall. You can just see the edge of the door to the "throne room" there on the right.
Sunday Jim, Michelle and Bella went to the Way Off Broadway Theatre to see Cinderella. It was a great break for them and got them out of my hair for a few hours. Bella loved it! The ugly step sisters were played by men and she thought they were quite funny. Here is a picture of her with the cast:
So that was my weekend! How was yours?
