After selecting our paint colors at Miller Paint we started the next phase of our remodel. We picked out Weaver's Tool for the living room, hallway and entry and a Devine color, Chicken for the dining/kitchen area. Our first step was to prime the new ceiling and walls. While that was drying I started in the living room Sunday. Monday and Tuesday I moved down our long hallway, and yesterday I painted the entire kitchen and dining area. Some days I had a paint brush in hand for 8 hours. The one thing that has kept me motivated: listening to audiobooks. I listened to The Litigators by John Grisham and I am several disks into Death Benefit by Robin Cook. These books by two of my favorite authors made the painting process fly by.
I love the new colors and I am now in the process of cleaning shreetrock dust off of everything and putting our living room and hallway back in place. It will be nice to see a semblance of "order" before moving on to the next phase: installing cabinetry. This will reveal the reality of a new kitchen! We are moving closer to our goal!
