Hello! Good Monday!
It has been a marathon around the Kent home as of late. The kind of life chaos filled week that creates a manic giggle effect. Do you know what I mean….It makes you good ever so slightly coo coo for a while. We have been creating and preparing for our apartment to be photographed tomorrow. It’s so fun, and it’s been a challenge because we have like zero budget. But that’s the kind of fun, creative challenge that I enjoy! We were preparing to paint most of our main living space yesterday morning when a water main to our water heater busted. BUSTED. Within ten minutes, our floors we covered in an inch of water. This threw off our schedule to say the absolute least.
But Matt and I are NOT quitters. We are determined, and maybe even a little bit stubborn. So, as soon as we got all of the water sucked up and fans set up on the carpeted areas, we got right to work! We spent all night painting and cleaning. Everyone should totally have a flooded apartment two days before it’s to be photographed….it keeps you on your toes.
What our living room/kitchen looked like before the paint:
Light blue on two of four living room walls, and a very turquoise kitchen.
Goodbye turquoise, hello coral. YES.
Matt ended up taking all the cabinet facings off while he painted. And, since I’m a weirdo, I just had to take photos of my constantly growing mis-matched dishes collection.
We are using some paint that we have had left over from when we moved in, as well as some leftover paint from friends with fantastic taste in color to keep cost down. All this painting recently has got me thinking about our bedroom and the office. I’m inspired to paint the entire apartment! Most of my descriptions on Pinterest lately have simply been “paint”…there are so many gorgeous colors out there!
I’m so happy that we are in full swing again after “The Great Flood” ( which is what Matt has decided that we shall refer to it as. haha) The painting is done aside from some touching up…..it all happens tomorrow.
Should I document the process a bit for you to see? I may not be able to share any images until the issue comes out, but is that something you guys would be interested in?
hmmm…..now what else can I paint?
