Tuesday afternoon, I stumbled out of bed, opened my bedroom door, and discovered I was trapped:

The contractors had tented off their work area, trying to contain the mess.  It worked out really well, too.  I could have gone out through the hall on the other side of the bedroom, but I decided to go back to bed instead.  So why the tent?  They were spraying texture, y'all!  That's the last step before primer and paint.  Wahoo!

We were asked to wait 24 hours before painting, and advised to run the air conditioning if possible.  Since we're STILL in triple digits here, the AC was on anyway.  24 hours and one minute later, Walker rolled on primer.  After work this morning, I added the first coat of color.  It's coming along, y'all!!

Color!  We used Bahr paint & primer.  The color on the left is called Safari Vest.  The color on the right is Wax Sculpture.  They get blended with  a third color for the faux paint process.

That big white wall will have a faux paint finish, but I need daylight to get that done. 


  1. Congratulations on all the work you have done and it is amazing how it changes as you work.

  2. Ahhh, it is looking good. I am sure you will be glad to get it done and enjoy it all.

    I am so far behind on my blogging, it is pitiful! It has been a crazy summer.
    Sending love,
