Imagine it with white crown molding, white baseboards, and dark brown (almost black) wood doors on the right where there water heater/linen closet will be. Imagine blue/gray tile in the shower. Imagine light colored tile on the floor. It’s going to be beautiful…. or, we paint again. Ha ha ha!!
Sheet rock got finished right before last weekend… meaning we could start slapping some paint on in the addition. Which meant we had to decide on color. The final choice…. gray. The tile in the shower will be gray/blue tile with white grout. Glass accent tiles are gray, white, and a gray/blue, stark white tub, stark white porcelain sink top, white crown and baseboard, dark brown, almost black, vanity cabinet, half wall shelving unit, and doors on the linen/water heater closet. We think it’s going to look great.
The theme for this week’s Photo Hunt is hands. I looked through the ol’ archives and found this one, taken in December, 2008, with my iPhone camera. We were working on our most recent rental project and this is the clean the paint out of the brush technique that seemed to work best. I used a funky camera setting with the phone to get this shot. I kind of like it.

As I said, we’ve been over at the new rental a lot these days. We’ve torn things out, put things in and then torn them out again, had the plumber over to install the new master bath shower among other things, met with the electrician, cleaned, cleaned, and oh yeah, cleaned, had the heat pump guy come over and clean out all the duct work and service the heat pump and backup heater, had a new roof put on, had a little repair work done to the railing in the back of the house, had the carpet guy come in and measure for carpeting and the buy it… it’s in the garage waiting, had the appraiser come back from the bank to re-appraise after we’d put the wall back up in the bathroom so we could take it down… how dumb is that, but they wanted to see a wall, even though we were going to put a shower in and in order to do that there can’t be sheet rock… hoops, there are a few to jump through, shopped for appliances, spent many an hour on the road to either Home Depot or Lowe’s, and generally been tired most of the time. This shot is of the living room, entry area after we primed it. It was a lovely shade of really dark dark green. I have nothing against green, this was just not a green anyone should paint a room. Enough said.
