weekend transformation #2

While dad and uncle Steve were upstairs working on the new floor, I spent most of the weekend in the basement. Having painted the first coat of yellow last weekend - and not loving it - I started over with a new shade: more lemongrass-y, less orange-y. And it was definitely worth it.

11:30 am Saturday - "Midday Sun" on the walls (aka macaroni and cheese in paint form)

4:00 pm Sunday - painting the brick wall

6:00 pm - after two coats of "Rice Wine"

lots of tiny footprints and paint drops: the reason I have to repaint the basement floor

9:00 pm - basement floor, after painting myself into the stairwell

There's a little bit of work left in the basement, but it's come a long way from this, wouldn't you agree?
