The painting continues today! Everything is going great, but it is taking longer than expected. The hardest part is keeping Miss L and our dog out of the painter’s way. We end up holed up in the master bedroom, which, I think I’m speaking for the three of us here, gets booooring. I think we’re going to head up to one of my favorite antiquing towns in Michigan today to busy ourselves (not the dog, she’s staying here).
I want to share one of the major changes that this painting project is bringing; the mantel and tile surround! We wanted to paint all of the woodwork in the house white, so, obviously, the mantel was going to change. After discussing it with the painter, it was decided that we would also go ahead and paint the rather dingy and tired tiles as well. I am very pleased with this decision, and I think you’ll agree it is a change for the better!
