After taking another week-long break we were back it again this weekend with more painting, cleaning, and organizing. A trip to the bay area got us a late start on the home stuff, so it wasn’t until late Saturday afternoon we started on things. I put together my shopping list, and off we went!
First stop was Bed, Bath & Beyond, armed with a $50 gift card and 20% off coupon for the guest room curtain rod.
Next stop was Home Depot to buy some paint for the guest room and some more stuff for Josh to do electrical work. The $50 in gift cards helped too!
I chose Aqua Smoke, which is the color I used in the kitchen. The color scheme I’m going for in the guest room is along the turquoise/yellow/gray/white/black route.
Since we had $75 in gift cards and a 10% off coupon, the remainder of our shopping was done at Lowe’s. Our big purchase was a super-tall a-frame ladder that would allow us to paint the vaulted ceilings/walls in our living room and family room. In addition to that we got a faucet for the guest bath, a pull-out drawer to put in the kitchen that will hold my KitchenAid mixer, and some contact paper for the cabinets under the sink.
Sunday we went straight to work on painting. While Josh continued work on the living room, I painted the guest room. Below is a panaoramic shot I took of it this morning via my iPhone 5.
Please excuse the poor lighting; it was raining outside, and all I had was this lamp.
I had more paint supplies to buy, so another shopping trip was in order. We went Home Depot for more paint, and then we stopped at my Nana’s house to pick up the under-the-cabinet pull-out drawers we installed under the kitchen and bathroom sinks. Lastly, we got a bed, box spring, and mattress for the guest at IKEA; now that the paint is dry we’ll be setting that up tonight.
We’re getting so close to being done! Only one more room to paint, a few boxes to open, and then it’s just a plethora of small projects.
