Day 11

What a day!  At last the primer is dry and Brad is putting the actual wall color .  I had to leave to go to my chiropractor at 9:00 and came back after a couple of errands and something to eat.  I was anxious to see the color on the wall.

A little odd to see three colors – primer, old paint and a bit of the new color.  Brad doesn’t think the new color looks very well with yellow trim.

In the corner it is easier to see the new color – my photography leaves something to be desired because it really doesn’t do it justice.  Not quite as dark as this,

But not as pale as this.  The corner was painted but I think the light and and my skills seem to make it look as if the walls have white places along with Creamery.

This somewhat shows how it will look with the white trim – closer to the door rather than the yellow window.

This shows it better because only the primed door is next to the wall.

This is in one of the corners and it looks odd – around the window it looks  white and the other looks more the color.

Another corner and bit of the ceiling.   (Almost deleted this one because it doesn’t show the color very well)

I decided to take a picture of the paint tray because it really shows the color.

You can see the old wood floor under the vinyl, the same type of wood like the bathroom.

The walls are now all painted, except for a couple of spots.

This the wall where the new stove will go.

The yellow trim doesn’t quite go.  However, the plumbing is all ready for the new sink when it is time to install.

I probably don’t need to put any more shots of the walls.

Our new back door (a proper exterior door!)

The red on the window is a little bondo because there are nicks and gouges which will definitely show up with semigloss.

It’s beginning to look more like a kitchen again.

Brad ordered the light fixture I chose.  I chose this one because it directs the light out and into corners.  I spent most of Thursday last week on line and went bug-eyed unti I found this one.  It comes to a point when the eyes glaze over and the mind goes into neutral.

I spent more time looking for a two light lamp to go over the sink and would go with the ceiling fixture.  Finally decided to use this one, the other one was just one light and it did well.  All the time online and there it was in front of me all the time.

We both like the carriage style for the porch light, found a really nice one online at Lowes and Brad ordered that one as well.  I think we are now set for lighting at the moment.
