Not only did they bring all the goodies, but they brought Papa John with them as well. You all know what this means. We now have an indoor pool, four more bedrooms, and a kitty condo. All right, not really, but the kitty condo would have been nice. Maybe next time.
What we really accomplished was painting the entire upstairs hallway, complete with eight door jams, eight doors, and an insane high spot that for about ten minutes I feared my father's life as he stood precariously on the rail and stretched to create a perfect cut in on the ceiling. I swear he is Superman. And no, I did not take a picture because I was too busy not looking.
Here is what the hallway looked like pre paint job.
Now check out how stellar and cool it is.
I love how much brighter it is now. White trim, doors and ceilings amaze me at what a difference they make in a place. And if you are thinking that there really isn't much change...there really is. You just need to be here to see it. Pictures don't do it justice.
Our "B E N C E" photo was a wedding gift courtesy my wonderful friend, Anna.
Since Papa John and Mama Karen were only here for ten short days, we didn't go as crazy on the painting as last time. We did, however, get one more room done which I'll share with you guys soon. It's almost as cool as my craft room...almost.
Huge shout out to my parents for making the trip and hanging out with us. Now if only I could convince Mary to get down here to finish the bonus room ceilings...
