When I went by this morning there was a van with ladders!
A man was masking the windows and the tubs with tape and plastic.
When I came back around lunch time he had gotten a lot done already.
First he blows on the paint.
Then he rolls it out with this really wide roller.
We could have put a different color in every room if we wanted, but I really like the rooms to flow. I used the same color for everything. I sure hope it’s good!
I’ve got to say, I was a little surprised to see that they are painting without priming first.
They’re not. This is the primer. The primer is tinted the color that the paint will be.
It was hard to choose the paint color. Paint changes depending on the light level in the room. This room didn’t exist yet, so I had to imagine what the light would be.
The Schumacher Homes Design Studio has lots of paint samples to choose from.
I love yellow walls. I have had yellow walls in nearly every home. Even when I was a little girl, my bedroom had yellow walls.
The countertops are going to be navy blue and the leather sofa we already have is bright red. The log cabin has red cedar walls. You wouldn’t think so, but it kinda sucks the color out of things. Reds look brown near the red walls, so I chose a sofa that is lipstick bright red.
This house has a lot more light and is a very open floor plan.
Blue counters, red sofa and yellow walls? I don’t want the house to look like the little box of Crayola crayons.
So… It’s yellow. But not SO yellow.
It looks good! I think we’re gonna love it!
