I am not a fan of neutral colors in a home. I dislike shades of beige and off-white. I think colors like that lack personality and are unimaginative. To me, the only places neutral colors should live are hallways, utility rooms, closets, and garages. So, this being a laundry room, a light neutral color was allowed. It's a shade that really changes with the light because in the picture above it looks really yellow, but in the morning light right now it looks creamy, and at night it has a hint of green.
We got the first coat on by dinner
Took a little break, and knocked out the second coat in 45 minutes
Tonight we'll put up the laundry cabinet (which is DONE, I just have to clean it up and put on the glass knobs) and then we'll hook up the washer and dryer. The cabinet is SUPER heavy, so I think we'll ask our neighbor Leighton to help us lift it up and install it when Chris gets home. There is still the floor that needs to be replaced and the trim that needs to be painted (and some installed), but it is a VAST improvement.
I got my new schedule from LHB now that school has started again for our other receptionist. I've got Mondays and Fridays off, so that's pretty cool. It opens up a lot of time to work on the house, and also time to hopefully get some substitute teaching in for extra money once my CBEST scores come back (unofficial TODAY) and I send in my paperwork. Update: I got my scores and I PASSED!!!!
Alright, I'm off to get some housework done!
