New paint

Last week the mollies that held the toilet paper roll holder to the wall in the half-bath gave up and left unsightly holes in the sheetrock. Steve patched and sanded, but the wall looked bad and we knew we'd have to paint.

No problem! We have lots of paint left over from Tom's cottage and Steve's office, and all of it is either gloss or semi-gloss, which I much prefer over the flat paint currently on all the walls of our house.

My only dilemma was to choose a color that wouldn't overwhelm such a tiny space. I decided to go with the tan Tom had custom-mixed for his bathroom. Joan taped and painted, Sarah helped her clean it up, and yesterday we had a beautiful "new" bathroom. Now Steve thinks we need to paint the rest of the rooms downstairs.

Nice! I have a few unfinished painting projects here...maybe Joan and Sarah can come visit for the weekend? :-)

Yes! Teen daughters are great at home projects, and Joan is very talented at painting. Maybe Brenna is an untapped well of talent in your family?

Maybe! I'm working on training her for babysitting and dinner cooking, though. :-)

I didn't know you had repainted, that looks great! Glad our leftover paint is finally being used!

I wish your painting crew could visit my house. I have three bathrooms in need of a makeover.
