You know that you don’t spend enough time at home with your husband when your neighbor thinks you’ve gotten a divorce. Jon headed out to Ontario last week (basically as soon as I arrived home) leaving me and the animals to our own devices. To keep myself busy, I decided to paint the main bathroom while he wasn’t around to critique my painting style. After two trips to the paint store, one trip to Totem for new hardware, and 3 coats of paint my bathroom is now smokey taupe (good) instead of peachy brown (ugly). Lots of credit goes to the guy at the paint store who picked out the colour. My helpful “I’d like to paint the bathroom, a colour that isn’t the colour it is now” really gave him a lot to work with but in the end it looks great. Just a few more touch ups near the door frame, and then on with the new knobs, hinges and hangers.
