I have been busy decorating our bedroom. Funny thing is dh walked in as I was painting and said it doesn't look any different colour wise to what it was. My response was good, then if I have missed anything you won't notice. I painted it a pale cream/beige colour. The biggest change is all the trim. They were also painted cream by the builder, now they are a bright white. Trim to my mind shouldn't be any other colour than white. It makes the wall colours pop.
Someone else in blogland was also decorating and they were saying how much harder it is to decorate the older you get. I have to agree. I had been picking away at the trim all the week, so all I had to do on the weekend was paint the walls twice and paint the window trim and a little bit of the skirting/baseboard. I managed to get one coat of paint on the window and baseboard trim, and one and a half coats of paint on the walls on Saturday. I finished the walls and trim on Sunday. I was so tired and my back and hands were hurting so much on Saturday, that I knew I couldn't finish it all on Saturday.
Fortunately I am still at a stage with my back that a good nights sleep cures the aches with my back and as long as I wear my braces on my hands through the nights they too recover, and on I go the next day.
So we have had three nights sleeping in the spare bedroom which is in the basement. We have large windows in both the bedroom and family room, so although not the brightest of rooms, they are not too dark. I must say I am looking forward to being back in our own bed, as I had a duvet and a bedspread on the spare bed, which is much too hot for me. Dh loved it and was as warm as toast.......me, I sweated like a crazy person.
So all I have to paint now is the spare bedroom. Luckily I am not at this stage:
Do you enjoy decorating the rooms in your home?
