If it was paint I painted myself that is.
When we moved into our house four years ago everything was just painted and "new" and we did not really feel the need to do anything but get unpacked and start enjoying our cozy new home. We still have not done anything to make the inside of the place look any better than it was that day in October 2003. It's starting to show. Also I was hoping that some of the colours would grow on me. They have not!
Upstairs has the typical bright, primary colours feel.
There is also a blue room and a yellow room, but I don't mind those so much. Office/guest room and main guest room (spinning room, ssshhh).
That green... It's like sleeping inside a cuecumber! What's really starting to get to me though is that I can no longer turn a blind eye to the little details showing how absolutely sloppy some of the work has been done, and the fact that we are also wearing our house down faster than I thought.
Getting the bedroom painted would also be a good opportunity to get new bedroom curtains. Though that would mean getting rid of the ones P so lovingly hemmed. Look at that job...
He did not even use cissors for the whole operation. That is one gorgeous 1+ meter hem.
(Did you not catch the dripping sarcasm here? Try again!)
What's the point in all this, in a supposed-to-be-knitting blog? Petter does not want to go to look at, decide on or buy paint with me. I think he's afraid of the whole experience being like going to a LYS with me. And I think he might be right. I know I'll spend ages pondering colours, textures, tools and tricks. Wich are things I like and he lothes. But I think it's important that he has a say in it too, we'll both be spending countless hours with the result. That, and the fact that when I said he had to give me one colour he'd consider he said white. He turned the volume on the tv up when I made him understand there is more than one kind of white.
I think I've scared him off by asking too many times "Will this end up looking like a zebra?"
(That's todays knitting content, I squeezed it in)
So now I turn to you, my few but faithful readers to answer this question:
*What colour paint do I pick to go with these tiles?
(Hint: I know red does, but I don't like that any longer)
