Getting a little closer

When I haven't been blackmailing I mean hijacking my sister's blog this weekend, I've been painting! Painting at the new house that is! I've only done a teeny tiny portion of it. My Dad has really been the one doing it. He is as close to professional as you'd get. Meticulous is probably a better way to describe it. I was not allowed to clean any tool (brush, roller, can, tray, etc. etc.). He had to do it. But you know what, that's the part I hate doing any way!

So here are a few pics. They really don't do any justice to the colors I picked.

Thomas' room
Paint Color: Benjamin Moore Colonial Blue (its way better in person!)Master Bedroom
Paint Color: Benjamin Moore Gray Cloud (I love it! It's very neutral and is going to look great with the new bedding set I bought!)Xtra Room
Paint Color: Benjamin Moore Western Flax (Yup, it's yellow! It's the color in Thomas' current room and it goes very well w/ all the baby bedding I have. In the future this will be baby no. 2's room. Whenever that might be.)Bathroom
Paint Color: Benjamin Moore Cream Fleece (Again, it looks way better in person.)This is what Einstein did all day today. He installed the new oak stair treads. He did a really good job too!One more picture............See this bundle? That's part of the new hardwood floor that's being installed on Wednesday. I'm so excited for the wood ninjas to be coming! After that, things will really start to fall in place! Can't wait :)

Mare, I LOVE your colors! Especially TT's blue and In-The-Way-Distant-Future-Baby-#2 room. I think soft yellow is so pretty; that was the color I chose for my room when I was a teenager and got over the whole pink obsession.

Your house is going to be so gorgeous! And I just cannot believe Einstein! A couple of times Amy JEAN Kelly has mentioned to me that Einstein can do ANYTHING (why didn't YOU tell me that? BWAHA!), but I didn't think much of it. Since you guys got the house, though, I am seeing just how right AJK was! And I am LOVIN' Einstein!!! Lucky you, Mare! I'm no longer worried that Einstein is breaking your new house; he truly knows what he's doing! Thanks for sharing all of this with us...I LOVE this stuff.

Gorgeous! My Dad did most all of the painting in our house (and is currently outside painting the exterior!) While I only have the patience, he has both that and the time. We refinished the hardwood in our kitchen and extended it into the office - I love it, and can't wait for the playroom to become the family room so I can put it in there as well! Can't wait to see more pictures!

Oooh, I love painting. Okay, I don't love painting, but I love new paint. Those colors are so purdy.
