A Tour of the Project So Far

Mom said that she's only finished with "Phase 2" of the painting project.  We're taking a couple days off and then starting Phase 3 on Tuesday (master bedroom/bath/walk-in closet).  Me and Stanley took these pictures so everybody could have a tour and see for themselves how bored we have been.  Mom  did the painting and dad did all the prep and assisted.
Entryway - front door
See the banister on the right?  We painted the stairway too.
The stairs that go downstairs.  It is a ranch but the basement is finished and day-lit (out of the ground).  This is where me and Stanley were banished to when mom was painting the living room.
The first arch to the right goes to the mudroom.  We painted that too.
This is the hallway that connects to another hall that splits off to some other rooms.  We painted that too.  That is where me and Stanley had to hold down the drop cloths.
The mudroom.  Mom says the green color on the left is actually kind of close.  The whole room is this color despite how the photo looks.
The living room, the vaulted ceiling is above this plant wall.  Mom was very brave.
Vaulted ceiling, it is about a million feet high, or maybe 87 miles.
Other livingroom wall.  The wall with the windows is the dark wall.  The colors are off but somewhat representative.
Other living room wall, next to arch that opens into kitchen.
Archway into kitchen.  You can see mom had to paint AROUND all the cabinets.  The color is close to being right (walls not ceiling).
Dropped ceiling above nook area in kitchen.

Nook area.  This is the door where Stanley rings the bells to say we want out.  I have only rung them once.  Stanley rings them ALL THE TIME.

So you can see what has been taking all our time.  At least we did get to go for another 6 mile run on Friday.  And mom and dad are going on their long run tomorrow.  And then . . . back to painting!

Our mom keeps saying she needs to paint the insides of our house, but then she is imagining the walls getting textured with our furs as the paint dries, so she keeps procrastinatin, mol! make sure your folks have some extra fun times with you two before the next project phase starts!

  21. Hi there, Somehow I missed this; I love all your hard work. Your home is beautiful-your mom and I have similar taste in decorating. In fact, your kitchen looks similar to ours.
    Hey-I have a question for you all-my brother & sil are coming for a visit next month and planning on spending a couple of days in SLC. Other than the Mormon temple, is there any "must sees" for SLC? Usually, we just drive through on our way back to Ca. I don't have any ideas but figured you might.
    Have a great day; love all your painting. Wish you guys lived next door!!!
    Noreen & Hunter
