The Painting Has Begun! The Painting Has Begun!

And it came to pass that the most glorious part of any makeover project began. The painting. The motherfucking painting has begun!


We thoughtfully considered all your comments and made our decision. Can you tell what it is? I have decided I shall reveal the color tomorrow after it has dried and I can photograph it properly. I have also decided I shall start saying "shall" more as it sounds smart and poetic. And biblical.

I shall see you on the morrow.

Oh. One more thing. Sorry I look like reheated meatloaf dinner in this video. It's just that it was really humid today and putting on any make-up would have been a waste of time as it would have immediately melted off my face. And also brushing my hair would've been a waste of time because, well, it would have just got all tangled again and then I'd have to brush it again and that's just more personal hygiene than I can manage right now.

Yay for tomorrow's reveal! Look forward to seeing what colour you guys have chosen.

And I can't view the video (I'm at work, d'oh!) but I'm sure you look fab! Plus, who can be bothered putting on makeup in excessive heat?

Daaaammnnn! That looks like a big ol' bathroom! But I guess it IS an old Pennsylvania farm house, so it had to service, what, 10, 11 people? Gorgeous color!

That's a NICE bathroom color! Love it. Oh-and the wooden door in that bathroom is totally gorgeous-are all the doors like that? Swoon.

I like it! NICE! He's doing I would call this one Gasious Ash blue. No...Gracious Ash Blue. Beautiful. You weren't kidding with the geese and duck wall paper. Who does that? I guess people who need to cover LARGE spaces and feel the need to match grandness with grandiose ganders. Rising to the occasion I suppose. I wonder if there are any layers of wallpaper... always fun to discover vintage designs and stuff. Anyway, it's nice to see you guys don't waste time in the updating and that you seem to work well together. He's doing a nice job there with the edging. I am like you in that I can't put in the time to do it it must be nice to have someone who will take the time. Good for you!!! Great choice!

gaseous ash? ooh that doesn't sound right all ALL. strike that...

PS. How big IS this bathroom?...and I wonder if that's the going size of bathrooms in old Amish country. Could it have been a bedroom until they invented bathrooms? Maybe where they were obligated to cut corners in certain modern day amenities, they were permitted to take liberty in others?
