Dream a Little Dream, II

The renovations upstairs are a GO! I spent a good deal of time diligently researching possibilities before we met with a loan person at the bank. We were pleasantly surprised to discover that we could get a better rate than we currently have and easily afford the upstairs work we dreamed of making a reality.

The framing, insulating and dry wall work is complete. AC unit in and tonight. We paint. This may mean divorce proceedings on Monday, but we figure we can muddle through and save that much money on hiring professionals to do the job. Rob's portion will be a bold blue while mine will be a soft Scandinavian color. I'm stuck between a palladian blue and queen anne pink. Both soft and mellow.

Then I will just need to save up for the fun bits.... I love this desk and will need a reading chair, something cushy and comfortable.... perfect for melting into with a good book. Art for the walls and a sweet touch here and there.

Bliss.

Yay! I love that you get to get new stuff!! The painting is no big deal, as long as you both get the colours you want. Have fun!

Yay! I love other people's renovations...so much less dusty in my own house that way.

Will Rob's walls meet your walls? I'm imagining some stand-off between Queen Anne Pink and Bold Blue which may end up in an ugly mauve.

Oh what good news! You two will be fine with the painting, you are a lovely couple.
