Over the last 6 months, we have totally re-painted this house, in bits and pieces. The big project was left for last, namely, the entry, stairwell, lower hall, and dining room. There was a time when I did all the ladder work and braved all the high spots. No longer. I leave that for those younger than me, but I offer danger pay. Ladders and scaffolds are not for the feint of heart.
We covered the two shades of gold with two shades of gray beige. The whole area looked so much cleaner, brighter, and expansive. The customer was thrilled, especially when we came in under budget.
