Bedroom painting marathon

My buddy Vic stopped in Saturday and guided me in the right direction on what to tackle next. The hardwood floors may be laid down in some areas before the entire floor is placed, so next up was painting the main bedroom and ensuite.

I ran into town to grab some paint and had to just stop and peek at Chwk New and Used. My creative brain had to see if I could find a magical kitchen island to save $ or any other cool trinket.

Oh, lots of cool price efficient trinkets. I love unique oddities and morph them into something they originally weren't. (a big passion of mine) There were some really cool smaller porcelain sinks, stainless steel tables, old doors... but nothing came home with me. I'm trying to create a headboard for my bedroom for my honkin' massively high king sized bed but nothing quite hit me right that run. I'll keep looking. And it's a very good (or bad?) thing I don't have a 100 foot trailer because I would have come home with the most unique metal clad siding ever. It was rusted to many different shades (cream, rust, dark brown) with metal still showing. It was like a painter's canvas. It would have made an incredible feature wall somewhere... well, I might have to go back for it if it won't 'leave me alone'. LOL (you shoppers know what I speak of!)

Nope, I was good and got in my truck and went home to paint. And oh my... some parts of this house I can actually say look 'pretty.' I'm delighted with the results!

So it was a paint into the night marathon. I treat myself to a wonderful Yarrow Pizza house special when I pull off one of those. Cranked up the radio, and watched the house transform.

Many nights just like this are upcoming. And I couldn't be happier!
