Weekend #3 Fixing Up New House

I am tired. Uncas is tired. We spent the weekend painting. Literally - the whole weekend painting! Friday night we painted all the ceilings upstairs (hallway, 3 bedrooms and the bathroom). Uncas also repainted the living room ceiling, so it now looks awesome!

Saturday we primed two of the bedrooms upstairs and finished prepping the upstairs. Saturday night we painted two coats of paint in two of the bedroom (color - Granny Smith). Sunday we painted the guest room (color - Pumpkin Pie) and the hallways including the stairwell (color - Sand Dollar - matches living room and downstairs hallway).

We were really motivated to get the whole upstairs painted since the carpet is pulled up right now. It was great to not have to worry about spilling or dripping. It feels great to have accomplished so much, but my poor hands are sore and blistered from all the painting and rolling. Check out pictures from the weekend by clicking HERE.

Tuesday the new carpet gets installed. We still want to paint the kitchen before moving this Saturday. Right now - all I can think about is sleeping!

Boy, we must have been hungry when we were shopping for paint for the upstairs rooms! Is it time to pass out yet?
