{pretty, happy, funny, real} on August 25

~ Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life ~

We are in the midst of dining room renovation, thanks to my Newfie painting team, aka Granny and Aunt Alison! It's been a busy week. More renovation pics to come in a later post. But here is a bit of contentment for this past week.

All the ladies! Thanks so much to Granny Raymer and Aunt Alison for all their hard work!


Arden, armed and dangerous with a paint stir stick! I think she's ready for her own extreme home makeover show :)


The current state of our dining room. Right now everything is white! It's rather jarring after living in such a dark room for over a year! But so much brighter. The trim has been painted in Mayonnaise (I think only 2/3 coats at this point), and the walls are awaiting plaster repair. There you can see our sample spots of Concord Ivory. The colour looks slightly different to me than what I had painted on a piece of board in last week's post, but different in a good way.

Next step: Me figuring out how to do a skim coat of mud over the really bad patches of wall, then more primer, then the colour! I can't wait till it's done...

  1. Goodness - I forget to mention the lovely kitty photo - very nice!

  2. Wow! That paint makes such a difference! Can't wait to see the finished room. :)

  3. Wow, the paint is really bringing your room to life.
