I am on vacation until after the first of the year, and would love this to be done. Its the only thing I want for Christmas. That was a little white lie, I also want to paint, and I've decide to make my own new curtains.
The children have been patiently waiting for the tree to go up, but that's been on hold until my gift is finished. That will be today, we have to move all the furniture around, organize my new built in wall unit entertainment center. Then Up goes the tree, out come the gifts, and everything will look like Christmas.
Now after the holiday the painting will start, I will only have a week of vacation left and a lot of work ahead. The excitement grows in me daily. The current color is a gray called smoked oyster. The color I want to change it to is called weather sandstone, a more earthy color. The stain chosen for the wall unit is a colonial chestnut and is beautiful, if I say so myself.
We have talked about this before and never did anything about it. But I asked for it for Christmas and he made it happen. He is the greatest person I could ever ask to be with.
Here are a few photos of the progress and process of his wonderful work and my design.
