Painting Upside Down (and other updates…no pun)

Remember where we ended up a couple weeks ago in the old dining room project (a.k.a. my own personal never-ending nightmare, only more dramatic)? Then got waylaid because we have trouble focusing? (Truth: because between the two of us we somehow ended up with five jobs in addition to volunteer work. Hi, we’re Chris and Teresa and we have trouble saying no.)

Well, Chris polished up the new drywall and installed trim around the perimeter of our new beadboard ceiling. I’ve been painting it, with a brush, craning my neck while working upside down. In the wee hours of the morning. Post-shower, pre-work. Thankfully I have friendly, observant colleagues to point out the paint smeared into my forearms or mushed into my hair. Jeez, I’m a wreck!

But progress is progress, no?


Wall color is Benjamin Moore Classic Gray matched to Valspar. Ceiling is a glossy match to our kitchen cabinets. Window trim has yet to be painted. I’m working on it!
