Darling Man was working every day of this holiday weekend. He worked for another employee on Saturday, did a soccer game on Sunday, and tonight, the FSU football game. Which meant that I had time on my hands. With breaks for exercising with the boy (who was consumed by his friend Jeremy and their online gaming), I decided to paint my family room.
It was a rather non-descript light yellow and I wanted to freshen it up, give it some color! Darling Man (who has an excellent sense for these things) said he wanted a green related to the one in the bathrooms. So I chose that color (green grapes) and went one shade lighter (lemon mint).
Since the family room and the kitchen are all one room, the paint went all the way into the kitchen too.
My before picture has two little boys playing clone wars in it... ignore them.
I also decided to work on the pantry, which I don't think anyone has touched since the place was built back in the early 60s. There were spider webs and holes in the walls. I scrubbed the walls and patched the holes (pictures taken after cleaning but before painting).
Nasty, huh? I can't believe I kept my FOOD in that closet!
ZBoy helped me by scrubbing the wire rack and the shelves (then painting the shelves). I painted the interior of the closet. Put it all back together and put what food we had back in.
Not too shabby!!! I'm feeling quite chuffed.
