This morning we started in on painting the colors. My husband tried to get out of painting because he's always gotten out of it in the past. This time I told him if I put up with assisting him and his drama of texturing, he could help me paint.
The surfaces were small so fortunately it took little effort although he did try a few different tactics of escape. I kept clearing the way for him to make it through. It only takes an hour to paint everything anyway.
We just put the last coat of the colored paint on both the bathroom and the bedroom wall. In a few hours I'll paint the designs in the rest of the bathroom and tape off the two stripes in the bedroom that got torn out because of the bathroom.
I'm pretty excited this is all almost over. But my neighbor isn't available this weekend to frame in the door and he's starting working nights again so isn't available to put our shower door (due Tuesday) in either. But he said he'd finish it all next weekend. So although my hope of having it done before school starts on Thursday won't happen, I think we're close enough.
I'll be really relieved when this is all done. We never thought this bathroom would keep us and my neighbor hostage all summer. But we've almost conquered it, so we win and my husband and I will celebrate our 19 years of marriage still talking to each other.
