Labor Day


On Labor Day we decided to celebrate by... laboring. All day.
After weeks of deliberation we finally chose the exact shade of green to paint the entire downstairs, and we went for it. We invited our wonderful Arizona family to help us, not really expecting them to come or stay for very long. I thought we'd get a couple walls done if we were lucky. Well, I've got a few new heroes in my life. Thanks mostly to Eric, Amy, Sara, and Brian we have a brand new shade of life on our walls. That's right folks, these wonderful angels stayed until every wall was covered in 5 gallons of Haze Green.
The funny thing is we spent more money painting our bedroom than we did painting the entire downstairs! Benjamin Moore, you are good, but you ain't cheap!

This is a shot in different light from a different angle. Obviously, you are not looking at any "finished product" here. We'll take more pictures when we move our painting equipment and get our new couches and curtains and hang stuff up.

LOVE IT!!! I'm so glad you have family there who are willing to 'give it up' in a big way to help you get it done so quickly! You can tell them from me that I think they are just great!
