In preparation for some techy upgrades coming our way, we are painting the living room and beginning the overdue process of updating it .... maybe we will begin to use it, even enjoy it one day soon.
First step this weekend, was dismantling a bookcase (we are very good packers), moving it out of the way, and prepping for paint. I am eating this elephant one bite at a time, so decided to paint one wall completely before tackling the rest.
A rare visit from E, Eldest Child, couldn't have been more timely. She grabbed a brush while I did the rolling, and by mid-day Sunday, we had a lovely green wall. Hard to tell the color - this isn't really it, but it depends on the lighting anyway. I finished the baseboard, but still have to spray the vent covers near the ceiling.
Now the fun...moving the furniture around and trying to fit books, videos, games, photos, whatever back into their places. Good time to fling a few. (E made the executive decision on the kids' videos....she can live without the Gnomemobile. There's a bag going to the library used book sale soon.)
Next week...another wall! Can't wait to see where this will lead.
