Another painting-week // Nog zo'n verf-week
Met een beetje geluk gaat broertje-lief over een week of anderhalf helemaal over in zijn eigen stulpje!
Well, you can just as easy read last weeks post again, for this week too all my time and energy went in painting in my brother's home. It's coming along rather well now, downstairs we are almost done painting now. Monday I'm going to paint the last two doors for the second time and than the new floor can be laid there. I will continue painting upstairs, where all the door- and windowframes and doors just need one more coat of paint before the walls can be painted and the floors laid too.
With a little bit of luck and a lot of work, my little bro will be moving in within the next 10 days!!
Now that I'm paining again this much, it is starting to itch within me to paint something in our own home too... Don't tell Henk, 'cause he will have a hissy fit if he finds out!! I wouldn't do it any way, because we are contemplating (I do a bit more than Henk) to put our house up for sale and hopefully are able to move as soon as possible. So, painting walls isn't the most clever thing to do now. Or is it??!
Regular visitors of my blog have seen several pictures of our home already and know we like colour very much. Cardinal red, orange and yellow are the colours of our walls downstairs! Quite bold, but we love it - even after having it like this for over 10 years. My concern however is that potential buyers won't be able to see beyond the colours and only see lots of work.
Eerst maar es het huis van mijn broer ingekleurd krijgen....
In our bedroom we had the same colours too, even darker orange with the dark red, but a few years back I did paint the walls a softer yellow. That was a good decision, because it made the room so much more calm and relaxing. So, maybe it is a good idea to do this downstairs too.
First get my brothers' home coloured in though.....
