Getting the paint brushes out again!

Mari, Cheri and I went to my Dad's to paint his dining room yesterday. He wanted to surprise Ann. She is in Florida until next Wednesday. He tore down the wallpaper and we painted it for him. It's a nice shade of brown. (kind of like what I just put in my bedroom)It's just amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do to a room. That wallpaper was great when it was put up but its time was up. I wish I could be there to see her face when she sees it!
The dining room itself was pretty easy to do but we also went down the hallway - there are a lot of doors to work around.
Ginger - I wish you could have been there for me. You know what the two of them are like to me! It was kind of a continual "pick on Terri" day. They didn't like the way I was edging the ceiling, etc... And then Mari had the nerve to try to compliment me. She said - "we just do this because you can handle it so well" Like that would make me feel any better. (big sigh)
Anyway, I'll see if I can get a picture with things hanging back up on the wall to show you all how it looks!

It's really hard to type while I play the sympathy violin for you at the same time!
It was worth it- it looks so much better!

Awwww, my dear friend, I feel your's the toe by the way?

I was having some mental pictures of the three of you painting. I knew I should have been there to make sure you were all being kind to one another, hehe.

I see Cheri is feeling really badly for not showering you with praises for your hard work.

I'm here for ya girl...I'm always here!

Ha, poor thing, isn't it just like close friends and family to get right there under your skin and then try to laugh about it...ha!

I can't wait to see what it looks like!

Mari said...

Oh Brother (or should I say sister?) Dena has it right - you give pretty good. And I did compliment you on your edging!

Laura said...

I hope it looks good! But since you changed colors, at least that's not on my shoulders anymore - if she doesn't like it it's your fault!

Sometimes I get these deja vu moments when reading your's and Mari's Blog. :)
