Today Mr. Snoots gave me the *go ahead* on buying new hardware for SD's old (teensy) bathroom, so I went forth and SPENT MONEY! Frankly, I'm pretty sure I don't have a clue as to what I'm doing but I bloody well tried and think I came up with the biggest bang for my buck.
I went with all nickel finish, which I just love.
Last weekend we brought the painter inside to paint SD's old bedroom in hopes that it will be ready for her by Thanksgiving. Not too certain that's going to happen but it will be close enough to please her. The bed will be delivered day after tomorrow and my excitement is mounting. However, I still have no walls painted and that's a problem and we still need to.
I'm really starting to like this guy. At first, I was perturbed because he's so slow, but I now find that his work is truly impeccable. The problem is that he started on SD's louvered closet doors instead of the room itself. He spent today beautifully repairing the doors and painted the ceiling. I've never had a painter who went to the trouble of fixing things before they painted them so that knocks him up a few notches in my opinion.
So, tonight before he left, he started painting the walls. When I went in to look I almost fainted. I think for such a small room, the color is far too dark. It's much darker than it looked on the sample.
Sooo... I guess I'll be up at 6:00 AM to get the paint back to my new best friend (she still doesn't know it) at Home Depot's paint department, Shannon. I'm certain she'll know how to fix this faux pas. I'm just worried that she'll grow weary of my screw-ups. I know I am.....
