These ceilings are tall and the little step ladder above wasn't big enough, so Kelly brought me the nine-foot ladder.
For the last two days, I've been painting our bedroom in a Sherwin Williams color called Softened Green, kind of a sage tone in an eggshell finish. I took the paint sample to Home Depot, which copied it and made it conveniently in a Behr brand paint, which I'm very pleased with the quality. I'm almost done, and just need to paint behind the large four-post bed, that is hovering over several cases of food storage. Kelly is trying to convince me that we should move the bed to be able to paint behind it, but I don't want to mess with our heavy bed. I am not strong enough to carefully move our bed, assisting him, and don't want to hurt my back or my gorgeous bed! So, I'm going to gingerly paint over the headboard and around it as much as my arms can reach. I'm a tidy painter. I can't wait to finish everything in the room that I have plans to make or update. I'm really exhausted after two days of hard work, have gained a greater appreciation for the wonderful Mexican immigrants who are mainly the ones around here willing to take these labor intense jobs.
