We are painting!

We decided to not go to Sydney as we had hoped over the extra long weekend but to make the most of the days off and get some painting down around the house. We have been talking about it for some time but now that we have decided to move into a townhouse, we really have to get this house ready to sell. There is not heaps to do, but we have 3 bedrooms to paint, family & kitchen area to paint, new carpet needs to go down & tiles on the laundry floor.

So the room we started with is Tam's old room, which had so many holes in the wall because she had so many pictures up which meant lots of repairing for Shaun. The next difficult thing was choosing a paint that we could put right through the rest of the place, something neutral.....we found that we liked the colour friends had painted their feature wall in their lounge so we got the name of it and got a sample point made up, took it home but Bunnings must have mixed the wrong colour. It was horrible, and nothing like the colour we chose. So back we went and I urged my 'team leader' to choose the colour I liked but in a half tint. I think it is perfect, the others aren't so sure. Neutral with warmth.....see what you reckon!!!

So as you can see the very old carpet is grey and that needs to be replaced as well, so we will have to chase that all up as well. As it was Anzac day yesterday, the shops didn't open til 1pm, which meant we couldn't get the paint (we forgot it was Anzac Day!) til then, so it was a late start and a late finish and Shaun was almost painting in the dark as he finished off the hallway too. Thanks Denis for your help with this we really appreciate it (especially Marilyn & I!!)
