Boy Do I Have Color!!!

Yes sireee; and I keep reminding myself of your dear counsel that it will take some getting use to after soooo many "white years". KMS who from now on will be referred to as Kathy - arrived with all her gear and we began moving furniture to the center of the room, taking blue plates, decorations, blue plates, pictures, blue plates etc. off the walls and the heavy job of moving piano and bookshelves. We got it done.

Thankfully we were able to scoot the shelves away from
the wall and not empty all the shelves first.
Kathy is a genius at cutting-in and not taping. That saved us a lot of time. She has thee most steady hand I've ever seen and that's why I did the cutting-in around the base boards where it isn't as noticeable.
Did I mention...I'VE GOT COLOR. And a lot of it.

I'm so glad Kathy didn't mind the ladder work up high.
I really was happy putting around the base boards.
Don't you always paint your name or initials during a paint job?

I'm a tad bit creaky in the neck and back.

Here's an "almost finished" photo. The blue plates in the dining room still need to go up. The photo does not show how much deeper the color is. I guess you'll just have to get on over and see for yourself. It is a big change.
I cannot express enough how grateful and thankful I am to dear Kathy for her great work, time, skill, gear and motivation. She really is one-of-a-kind and I'm so glad to call her

Aunt Sue, I love it, I love it, I love it!! As you know, yellow is my favorite color. I too have a yellow room in my house (my office). It looks great! Congrats, it's such a big job! Love you.

Love the color and the room. Kathy is the best! I love those chairs she painted in a previous post. Great work!

So - do you like color or do you miss your white walls? I love the yellow and think it looks great. Enjoy your new rooms! Everything looks new with a fresh coat of paint!

Fabulous!! We did a similar shade called Sweet Marzipan in our last house. It was so sunny and warm.

WOW! That looks awesome. And lucky you, you got professional painter Kathy S. to help you! She is awesome. Everytime I stop by her house she is painting something. It's hard to see for people like me who are color/paint/decorating challenged.

Looks great!
