Mr. H.C. is still working on the windows. He insists we can’t proceed until we get them painted and installed.
So unless I wanted to clean the chimney in the kitchen, there was only one thing for me to do…
take off the wallpaper in the yellow bedroom.
There’s not much to say about it. Taking off wallpaper is taking off wallpaper…
Much boring scraping.
But there are pictures. The wall in the yellow bedroom went from this:
Bring on the spackle and the primer!
And I have to say one more thing… (Okay, I admit it, I can’t just write a short post…) We made a trip to Washington to Westmoreland Supply–the nearest Benjamin Moore paint dealer. I checked their website; they were open until 3 on Saturday. We got there at 12:20, and the sign on the door said Closed. Saturday hours 9-12.
I was not happy. While waiting in the truck for Michael to buy our lunch in Mr. Gyros, I fired off an email to the place on the website where it says “Contact us.” I complained. I figured that would be the end of the story, but I did feel a little better. Before we even got our gyros eaten, the owner of the company had emailed me back apologizing and offering me a FREE gallon of BenMoore paint! Yippee! So now I have nothing but good to say about those nice people at Westmoreland Supply! What a generous thing for him to do. Turned unhappy :-( into happy :-) in about two seconds. One free gallon of Winter Wheat! Whooo-eee!
