Somebody Hand Me a Paint Brush

I'm done.  I finished the stockpile wall.  Wooooo!

I moved everything to the movie room closet, with the exception of laundry soap, crapper paper, and paper towels.  Those have been moved elsewhere, and I'm as happy as a pig in shit.

Somebody hand me a paint brush because I'm chomping at the bit, to get that movie/reading room painted.

Life is good.

  1. I absolutely love painting. The hubs and I recently renovated and extended our deck...600 square feet worth. As he nailed a board, I painted it. Actually I painted all 600 square feet (twice).

    2. Not that night but we had over 30 members of my family for our Easter gathering. Made all the hard work so worth it. :)

    1. Gosh, I'm not sure. Something bright because that room gets a lot of bright sun. Very peaceful room to read, rest, or watch a movie.

    2. we do like bright colours on walls... and under bright I mean light :) I once painted my room midnight blue and I will never go the dark path again

    4. yep, I covered it with white five years after hating the room all dark ..... I prefer white walls and colour in details because I cannot function without light

    5. I love the light too. So bright. Glad you were able to remove the dark blue.

  5. Wonderful! And what an amazing collection you have. Lots of savings there. Looking forward to seeing what colour you choose for that cool room.

    And is that a picture of Wonder Woman on the left side? Maybe it's you!? :)

    1. The Wonder Woman on the bottom is a tin sign that Tim bought me and the Wonder Woman on the top, in the little box, is from Barnes. We used a coupon for her.

      Not sure about the colour yet. I'm still going back and forth. I wanted to keep with how bright that room is during the day. Great place to read.

  10. The products on the wall would last me six months or more. What a chore to move them all.

    1. For the paper supplies yes. But for everything else it is a two year plus, supply of mostly freebies and money makers.

      Yesterday I counted 44 hair washes/conditioners. Hard to see it all in the mess.
