OUR 1st HOUSE
December 19, 2008 at 11:28 pm
There’s really nothing I can say except, “WOW”. Your house looks amazing, your know-how impresses me daily, when can I move in? I paint, bake, and play video games (well, really I only play Wii bowling. But I’ll bring the Wii).

Ok, tip for you for your next painting project…do the trim first, it doesn’t matter if you get a little on the ceiling/walls. Then use a slanted paint brush to bring the wall color to the trim. It comes out perfect every time…I don’t tape off anymore.

Total wow. You are my hero! And don’t you hate store assistants who can’t think outside the box? Ugh, where’s the initiative?

I know you guys are probably sick of me talking about the kitchen…it’s done though so, YAY!! I can shut up about it!
Oh and Michael dearest, that is definitely a tip I will have to remember. Do you happen to know what size brush works best? I have tried a regular flat 2 incher with limited success hence the ridiculous amounts of tape. Slanted – here I come!
Emily – you bring the wii – I’ll bring the “WEE!!!”
Jen – I know!! I was seriously thankful for his desire to do his job correctly (hard to find these days) but the customer is always right, right?!
XO – Katie

It will be so nice to spend Christmas looking at things you have done, instead of staring at all the things you need to do. It looks lovely, really lovely.

The hood looks amazing.
You are amazing me with all you are getting done!

Wow! You really have been working hard! It took me a whole weekend just to paint my bathroom (and its small, with only half walls)! Can I hire you to help my paint my family room?

The kitchen looks fantastic – lovin’ that shiny new hood!
There is nothing like freshly painted trim work to make a room look nice and “crispy” clean.

Hey Katie…I have the slanted brushes in all different sizes…1″, 1.5″, and 2″. If I’m painting a long wall, I’ll use the 2″, but around windows/trim, I’ve found that the smaller brushes can be easier to maneuver. I’ve always used Purdy brand brushes from Home Depot and they work great.

What a great job on all the trim work! You had a lot of trim and crown molding to paint around (and your trash can shows all the evidence!), but you made it.
