Today the Cerones have been hard at work. I started the morning off by packing up a dozen boxes and breaking down a desk. Then I was off to pick up paint from friends and from Home Depot. Then back home to start on the redecorating. We sanded the walls, repaired holes in the walls, sanded again, and started painting.
Here is a picture of what the walls downstairs used to look like.
Mary Beth picked that color when we first moved out of the house. I was skeptical about it at first, but it made the house look warm and inviting. In order to get a renter in the place, however, we needed to move toward something a bit more neutral. Here is what it looks like now (after the first coat of paint and with new blinds).
Tomorrow will be another day of work. We are hoping to finish the kitchen, living room, and hallway. That will only leave the bedrooms!
