My shirt of many colors…

I love to paint the rooms of my home. Most of you know this about me already. There is plenty on this here blog to prove that. What you may not know is I wear the same shirt every time I paint. Every. Time. I don’t wear the same pants because they keep shrinking in the drawer between paint jobs. Dammit.

Here is my shirt of many colors and oh, how I love it so…

Ahh, the memories.

This blue speck right here? That’s the color I painted the master bathroom in this new house, in the city. The color is called “Aqua-Sphere”. I must be getting better at painting, because this is the only little splotch I had on my shirt of many colors.

The before pictures are really bad, because CGMan took them when he came to look at the house. (Yes, yes, I know that I chronicle almost every paint job and yes, you would think I would always remember to take a “before” picture. It happens that I get too excited and forget –it’s the story of my life. That’s how I came to have two husbands and three kids) As I was saying…CGMan found this house as the owners were still moving out, so it hadn’t been cleaned up yet, but he took pictures to send to me for my approval. You have to move fast when you are trying to rent a house in the city. So here are the before pictures:

The curtains hanging there are homemade white and blue striped.

Now, after I donned my shirt of many colors and transformed this colorless bathroom, here is the new and improved master bath:

I truly believe my shirt of many colors has just a little magic in it, wouldn’t you say?

Wordless Wednesday…with some words…

I like wordless Wednesdays. It gives me a chance to show off some pictures that I have cramming up my phone. Let’s see, since you’ve alread...
