Primer, Texture, & Paint...Oh my!

It's hard to believe, but the whole "new" area of the house has been totally taped, mudded, primed, and textured and now Phil & Susan are painting away! Last weekend Phil and I went to Sherwin Williams to pick out paint colors. We are going with an off white in the kitchen & living room, a dark gray in our master bedroom, a lighter gray in the other two bedrooms, and a very light gray in the bathrooms. While lots of gray may sound boring, I plan to get lots of color in the decor and have fun with it (once the budget will allow!). We also looked at picking out our carpet and counter tops this weekend. I thought we were going to order our cabinets on Monday, but Kristi at Home Depot told us to wait until tomorrow (hopefully!) since they extended the sale and Home Depot is coming out with a 10% savings coupon. Score!

Polar Bear or Creamy

All four grays...and Cal snuck in (we got to dog-sit for the weekend)

real walls!

Phil with the dogs...poor Charlie was up all night Saturday totally sick. Worst noises I've ever heard. Felt so bad for the poor guy. Luckily no vet trip was needed and he is back to feeling good. Cal was a trooper for putting up with it all.


  1. Can't wait to come and visit after the fresh paint smell goes away. Cute photos of Cal Lewin but none of Charley :-(

    Looking good Ali and Phil!

  2. The house is looking so good. The fun work is now beginning because it goes so much faster! Lots of cleaning ahead too:)
