So round two happened this weekend. Again our parents dedicated their entire weekends to coming and helping us renovate the house. These are going to be rather long posts, so I am going to separate them by days.
Starting with Thursday:
I picked up Susan at the McDonald's halfway between Norman and Tulsa around 9 am. Then we headed back to Norman to get started.
After a trip to Lowe's - this is basically how every day begins - we got to the house and got to work.
We were trying to choose the perfect color for the master bedroom. I have decided that those color swatches from Lowe's are a joke. What you see is not exactly what your wall gets. So we sampled a few different colors.
Susan took to my office and finished painting it green. I told you I loved this color and so I decided to paint all four walls green - I am so glad I did!
This is only after one coat, I'll show you a more finished photo later...
In the meantime I spent all day painting the wainscoting and the bookshelves. That is an intense job.
Did I mention Susan and I pulled an ALL-NIGHTER? We painted through the night and into the morning. Had to grab Susan a coffee, coke and a little late night snack at McDonalds, but after we finished our snacks around 3 am, we were back at it!
We were pooped at about 4 am, but somehow we made it to the morning and went home around 7:30 am, to see David off to work. We both crawled into bed and took about a three hour nap... Whew...
We both decided that we were too old for all nighters...
