Painting, Painting and More Painting
Steve finished the trim around the windows on the outside so the next coat of stucco could go on, but of course, we have been waiting for the stucco team to come back and put on that second coat. Not one to sit around and enjoy the day, Steve began priming all the rooms. I did help with the primer. Unfortunately, Steve didn't think I was doing a good job as I have a tendency to hold the roller to the ceiling then walk backwards pulling the thing along. He informed me that I had to use my arms to move the roller back and forth. So I decided it hurt my neck to roller and instead, grabbed a brush and did the cutting in around the floor. I also helped with part of the painting, but not the last coat. Anyway, all three rooms are now painted.
Looking from the bedroom down the hall to the family room. White and bright. All the rooms are white except for the one bedroom wall which is the orchid pink.
The pink wall is the back wall of the bedroom. (Lattice in back is one neighbor's side of the fence - I think we will plant a flowering vine on it.) We decided to paint the one wall pink to match two walls that are already pink - one in the living room and the front entrance hallway - as a way of pulling the new addition into the old. The carpeting will be plum color to match what we have in the original house and VCT like in original will also be used. This shade of pink is bold, almost an orchid, if the new owner doesn't like it, they can repaint - easy enough job if you don't pull the roller along by walking backwards.
This last picture shows the lovely fragile looking Chorisia Floss Silk tree that grows on the backside of the house. Luckily, we didn't have to cut it down when adding on the addition. The flowers (colors match the bedroom wall ) are really gorgeous like baby orchids. I leave you with a shot of the flowers from the Chorisia tree which is native of South America.
