The Phantom

Bill called in a friend for the tape and mud portion of the bedroom reno. I've yet to meet him, or even see him, but each day this week I've come home to visible progress on the drywall. He's apparently not working tomorrow per Bill's voicemail, but will be here and finish up on Friday.

If everything is dry and ready to go I have two gallons of drywall primer waiting for Saturday. The new doors will not be ready until sometime during the second week of April (they build the jambs and put on the casing we chose) so Bill will have a little break before coming back for door and trim installation. I'm planning to get the walls painted during the hiatus.

So far the entrants into my paint tournament are all from Benjamin Moore and are: Feather Gray, Revere Pewter (the current favorite), and after I get a sample, Stonington Gray. The early pre-painting lead in the trim division is Decorators White, but I expect one or maybe two last minute additions.

Windows are still up in the air and we'll probably spend some time this weekend looking at the big box stores to see if theres anything available that we like. I have a pair of silver Resto rods and finials still in the box that we never used at the condo, so I'm pleased to finally have a place to use them once the windows are resolved.

I am anxious to see the color choices. My other half wants to paint, and I'm getting scared.

Don't be scared Toad, it's just paint. If it doesn't work it's easily fixed.

My living room and dining room are Revere Pewter and I really like them. Neutral but not boring.

David said...

Thank you kayduh, that's what I'm going for in this room. Fingers crossed.

Just the names of your paint choices sound fabulous!

My old bedroom was painted Revere Pewter for a couple years. I loved it.

The progress looks amazing and you're moving along quickly--that must be gratifying. I'll throw in another yes for Revere Pewter. I've used it sucessfully for several clients before. People always ask for the name of the color after seeing it.
