I interrupted my moldmaking for some unplanned home renovation. We’re not usually the kind of people to paint their house on a whim – and certainly not one week before Christmas. In fact, our house has been the same “contractor off-white” since we built it twelve years ago.
That’s twelve years living in a place with less color than the average hospital room.
The builder said these two-story rooms would make the house “light and airy”. My (tall) husband loves them. I have simply been frustrated that I had no way to paint 22ft. walls. (Light and airy contractor beige got old really fast.)
So when our neighbor told us he knew a good painting crew desperate for work thanks to Charlotte’s stagnant construction industry, we asked for a quote. Two days later, my beige walls are gone, replaced by varying shades of sea greens and soft blues.
The change is worth every bit of disruption and inconvenience. But I have gotten behind on everything, including my moldmaking posts. The first mold is actually finished.
See? All done and drying. I did take pictures all along the way, but I need to get them sorted and color corrected. My plan is to do that tomorrow… after I put all the Christmas decorations back up again!
