My friends and I have been working away at the United Methodist Children’s Home project. We jump into these things and then get to the point where we want to throw our hands in the air and call time out. There never seems to be enough time to do it all, but somehow we will manage. We did manage to get the walls all primed a few weeks ago, so now it’s ready for the final coats of paint soon. It’s hard to coordinate all of this with 3 busy women, but with texts and emails back and forth, we somehow get things done.
We got busy with 4 of us priming that day and got it all done in one day. Angela was painting a donated bookcase for the space.
And soon, all this nasty brown paneling was covered with a nice coat of white primer. Better already!
That’s another blog friend, Sheila, who came out to help us paint which helped us get this job done in one day. Thanks Shelia, she was sweet and helped me paint at my house too last year.
Lori was working on taking down this small upper kitchen cabinet, since it really doesn’t serve a good purpose. We’re going to spruce up this space the best we can.
Angela painting the bookcase and walls.
After lunch we finished up and we were happy to see all white for a change. My friends at Payless Decor are donating new bamboo blinds for this space, which I’m so grateful for.
Freshly primed and ready to paint now.
It will be fun to see some color go in here and get our entire plan worked out.
The kitchen has a super cool brick wall.
And that’s a wrap on the priming.
Angela put together this collage of artwork that we found at the thriftstore. All of this vintage goodness will really add to the look we want to go for in this space. The girl’s cottage will host young women from about 18-21, so we want something pretty, but sophisticated too.
Think we’ll pull it off? We certainly hope so! Stay tuned for the finale, sometime in May.
