ebb + flow :: friday

For the third weekend in a row, the Red Head and I are going to be working on our master bedroom. The worst part is that the end isn’t even near so we’re not going to talk about that. Instead we’re going to talk about the fact that 5 o’clock has come and gone, the forecast is promising and I have some seriously good leftovers in the fridge right now. Small victories. Have a great weekend!

Weekend Wrap Up 4.19

ebb + flow :: weekend wrap up

After about 8 hours of painting this weekend, it has been determined that the Red Head and I don’t like the master bedroom paint color we chose. This is a problem but I haven’t lost total faith… yet. I’m hoping that new carpet, dark curtains, a wall of framed art and some new bedding will change our mind. Here’s hoping that works because these arms are TIRED from rolling walls and ceilings for the last two days. While I go stare at a wall and convince myself I love the color, enjoy these links from around the web this week.

Pastel Moment

ebb + flow :: pastel moment

In scrolling through my feeds today I noticed that I’m definitely having a pastel moment. I blame spring and I’m not mad about it. Bring on the budding flowers, the sunshine and some BBQs because it has been far too long. Maybe we could pack all three of those things into tomorrow afternoon? Let’s do it, weekend. Have a good one!

This color everywhere.

ebb + flow :: this color

As I finished priming the last bits of our woodwork, trim and newly refurbished walls last night, my thoughts shifted to the colorful part of our master bedroom remodel that lies ahead: the blue-grey we’ve chosen as the wall (and ceiling!) color. For the next few days I imagine I’ll be seeing this color in my hair, in my dreams and spotted on my pup. After that, it’s time to get all the trim to bright white, add some woodwork and start to piece the details together. The details are always my favorite part so let’s hope my painting skills are operating at light speed!

Weekend Wrap Up 4. 12

April 12, 2015

ebb + flow :: weekend wrap up

Full disclosure: this post was a total lie. Definitely not intentional, but definitely a lie. Rather than painting the last 36 hours we have encountered an inordinate amount of prep work in our master bedroom. I think I’ve caulked every seam imaginable, filled more holes than I ever thought possible and primed a measly two walls. On top of all that, one wall literally just scraped off. Hey, that’s fun, 91-year old house! There’s a light at the end of the prepping tunnel, but we’ve still got a few more to-do’s to check off the list today. Maybe next Saturday we’ll have a painting party? You’re definitely invited! Until then, enjoy these links from around the web.
