Light Sage Green

This weekend started with a stop at the hardware store on Friday afternoon. A few more paint trays and a can of Light Sage Green, the slightly more subtle colour I’d picked for the yellow-green Goldenrod my guy figured was perfect when he did it 7 years ago.

Stuff of Nightmares

We patched, sanded and TSP’d the walls and then got down to priming. The kiddo offered to help with priming. She had ulterior motives.

Spelling Issues

This is funny because my daughter has spelling problems. This should read Me WANT food. She tried again on the next wall, complete with crossouts and redos there. The guy meanwhile was painting himself as well as the wall.


The worst part about any home project is not usually the doing. Priming and painting only took us a couple of hours. The cleanup and repair and moving stuff however takes FOREVER.


Somewhere in there – before and after we got going – I finished up a custom order and made these guys so the day did end up with more than just Light Sage Green paint everywhere.

Dining Room

I know, it’s beige and white. But let me take you back a few days.

Issues with Moulding Hallway

Despite the fact that I work in a medium that is full of impressively eye popping colours I am not a very colour brave person. So the house here, which had lots of yellow green semi gloss paint on it’s walls always intimidated me a bit. I mean what goes with that?

Next: the living room. And then I can start putting things on the wall and adding items back to the rooms. This is what they call editing and it’s nice to know that it works just the same in rooms as it does in clay. Give yourself a nice base and work from there.

And that is how I make most of my beads, too. Go figure.
