Last year for March Break we went to New York, which was totally awesome. This year we spent the week making our house bigger. Well, we didn't actually make it bigger, but we made our basement into a place which we can use and will actually want to be in, instead of a dusty, spider-infested, cluttered horror show.
After we sorted everything out (five bags of garbage, six bags of Goodwill donations, two bags of recycling, a shelf of things to Craigslist, and lots of paint) we painted everything that would hold still. We painted the wall, the giant table, the front of the tool room, and the stairs. There's me painting the stairs. (See? I love to paint.)
The stairs are painted Summer Day by Benjamin Moore, and the the banister is Icicle. (The jaunty yellowish-green on the wall was already there; Mr Pereira must have painted it in a fit of uncharacteristic whimsy.) The bit of carpet (professionally nailed down by moi) is a scrap of the stuff we had in the condo - for some reason we moved it over here and stored it for five years.
While we were painting stuff anyway I painted the wall above the cabinet in the laundry. (It was unfinished drywall before.) This is I Love You Pink by Benjamin Moore, the colour that Delphine's room is painted.
