House Theorem #17:Once you move into your house, you no longer want to remodel.
The things that just “had to go”, like peach tile in the guest bathroom, suddenly pale in comparison to just hoping for sheetrock and a working sink.
The green color that you painstakingly chose for the master bedroom and bathroom and at one point that you loved, soon is loathed each and every day. I blame my father’s army roots on this color choice.
But although you loathe it, it still takes you three long years to change it. Because you are waiting for it to “wear out” and earn its keep.
Aqua Blue with hints of bright orange, tan and browns. Because perhaps this is another green bedroom and you (and your guests) will have to live with it for years until this color too, has “earned its keep”.
So, it’s Wednesday. And my walls are still Gray. But, who knows-Sunday’s on the way.
(And if you know who I’m quoting from 80′s Christian pop music, then you deserve a hug. And some shoulder pads.)
