The Painting Process

Everyone it's been a while. Well I decided to show you the progress of my home it's been slow. The painting process had been stopped for a while. We had chosen colors for the inside of the house (finally after about 20 samples we painted on the wall) and for some reason the person painting the walls painted the whole stairway two times the wrong color. He realized it both times after he had finished painting the whole 2 story stairway, I just couldn't believe it. Anyways now that the right paint is in his hands the painting process is proceeding. The bedrooms and hallway from upstairs were first, I think he got tired of painting the stairway first so he decided to do the hall and rooms.
For my boys room I chose a greenish pale color it looks nice eventhough my eldest son is nagging me that it's too light and it's girlish and he wants a dark room I said too bad, you see I had been asking him to choose a color for his room, he would choose black and of coarse I wasn't goint to paint it black, although I would like to paint a chalk board wall somewhere in my home. (But I don't think he would want that). So he just said whatever color but now he's complaining and I told him the furniture will make it look different. So he said ok I'll see but you see he has seen only these pictures he hasn't been to the house yet he might like it once he sees it. So it ended up quite light and nice my youngest son that is 12 likes the color. I painted both boys the same color.

It's a pale green, it looked different when I had a sample painted I saw it more to a bluish color but I guess I must have been seeing things but it came out nice. The pictures are not really that clear. I took the pictures with my phone so I'll try and post new ones when I remember to take my camera with me next time.

Another view (hmmmm the pictures aren't so good)

These other two are my daughters rooms it's a pinkish/whitish color it was called pink ballet slippers. I really like the color. Yet in reality both rooms have a different color tone, I think it's the lighting, my eldest daughters room has two windows so it gives it more of a peach/pink tone while my youngest daughters room is more pinkish/white tone. She only has a slidding door as a window but she has a balcony:).

This is one corner of my youngest daughters room.

This is my eldest daughters room as you can see my youngest daughter is posing and pointing to the color. She said wait let me show them I was like what is she talking about. Then I figured it out she knew I was gonna post these pictures. She reminds me of the models in the Bob Barker Show (The Price is Right) showcasing whatever product they were giving away.

Oh here Im not sure maybe she is showing the window. She probablly couldn't figure out how to demonstrate the color while posing (hmmmm should I point or what?). (aren't kids cute)LOL!

This is the hallway it's a brownish/beige color.

and finally my bedroom

Well that's all for today I'll be back posting newer pictures of the painting process and this time I will not forget to take my camera.
