Day 2:The kids came home from school and I just had gotten my paint samples to try on the wall. Of course, they wanted to help and it was good for them so I let them! I painted the darker pink, and Ali painted the apricot and then Amal painted the blue. I DON'T LIKE THE BLUE!
Here is the more secure door in place. We still need to paint and do something with the floor to cover the concrete and paint the walls white again. See where the old lock was? It left an ugly mark. I'm kinda grossed out by the fact that this door was on the outside with creepy crawlies!!
The dude left this completely open! I tried to sweep the debris to one corner so I wouldn't stumble and also so I would not track the floor crap in the main house but see this? There will be a window of sorts before long.
Standing from the new doorway, on the left you see this. The black doors are the garage double doors that will be covered up. There is a small window on the top with wordwork and I want to keep that natural light in so Waqar will build the new wall around that for me and have it cleaned out of the bird nests! The landlord doesn't want to lose the aesthetic of all his properties.
2. Dark Pink
4. Light Pink
I like this one the best but would have never, I mean NEVER thought of ME having a PINK room!! The size of the room dictates that the color I choose be very light. I will be losing about 12 to 18 inches in height too as they will be putting in a ceiling with better and brighter lighting. One thing that has me very concerned is that there is only one electrical socket. I don't know enough about this subject to know if I can have more put in. Where the socket is, is on the other side of the wall from the maid's room and bed. I sew late into the night and the thought of bothering her, whomever she may be and whenever I may get one, well, it doesn't sit well with me! We'll just have to work on that one!
Apricot. Hmm.....this is Ali's favorite and my gardener's favorite! It is too bright and it would just be too much I think!
This last one is light pink. The other one has red undertones whereas this one has blue. It is the lightest of the bunch and most unassuming. However, I like the other pink as it has more va-voom! It is more me but I am still not sure about Pink.
My husband said my studio should be Pink and White. I asked why and he said, "Because pink and white are your colors!" and I said, "What?" and he said, "You look so pretty in Pink and white!" Awww...
Tomorrow, we will change the ceiling tiles in the guest bathroom and I don't know what else!
Thanks for stopping by. I have some serious finagling to do with Ali's uniform now and errands to run and a nice warm couch to crash on!
