Ah, consonantal alliteration, I heart thee.
But not in a creepy way. In a nerdy way. Nerdeeeee.
It’s been ages since we’ve updated any of our projects on the home front. Not because we’ve been slacking off.
A little because we’ve been slacking off.
But! We’ve been making little bits of progress here and there.
For instance, repainting all of the trim in the living room. Hadn’t ever done since having the new windows installed and trimmed with primed trim. Wait! Did I not post about that? Whoa…can’t believe it. Because that was a huge deal. New windows throughout the abode. Installed by our friendly local window company.
A pretty pattern called “Jack Frost” for the bathroom…
Anyway, back to business, it turns out white primer is not paint. And it looks gray in person. Also turns out that our old trim color looks yellowish and yucky in person. Dingy.
Good Opportunity to freshen everything right up with some crisp white paint. This color is called “daylight” and is from Valspar. See how much brighter the right side of this door looks compared with the left?
What? Don’t like grainy late-in-the-day phone pics? Too bad. I lost the SD card for my camera. But I’m not gonna cry about it. Weirder things have happened. Seriously…read on.
We also decided there is no time like the present to tile the newer portion of our kitchen to match the original portion.
Yes, that’s an open jar of peanut butter. Yes, I was eating straight from the jar. Whilst renovating. Tiling is hard work. Have to keep my protein levels up and all that. Plus, with all the stashing of kitchen stuff to make this project happen, I lost the bread. Still haven’t found it. But I did find a can of stewed tomatoes on my bedside table. Like I said earlier, weirder things have happened. ;)
More to come soon, I swear! But for now, back to our regularly programmed consonantal alliteration:
