Home Projects, I Love Upstate

I painted 2 of the chandeliers today (primer then yellow. primer then black) and the niece and I painted the bedroom. We’re about 50% of the way done with the bedroom, but that seems to have taken 10+ days to achieve. I’ve lost the use of my right arm and hand in the past 48 hours. Ouchy. Ouchy. Ouch.

Here’s the formerly fug-brass chandelier…now a fun butter cream yellow…this will go in the bedroom…I need to buy new candle covers for it.

Here’s the other formerly fug-brass chandelier which will now go in the livingroom…also need to get new candle covers for it…

The bedroom…draped in every “drop cloth like” item we have…including a banner for one of my clients…it was massive and was once on the front of a store…somehow I ended up with it. It makes a bitchin’ drop cloth. The wall color is Butter Biscuit or something like that…who can remember? My brain is shot from paint fumes…

    Looks like loads of fun! Especially love the feet. Glad to know mine are not the only ones that look that way after painting.

    Love your site, I’m learning a lot from you. And I’m in love with Super Gay Andy :) How did my new boyfriend get his name?

    Learning how NOT to renovate, huh? LOL

    Super Gay Andy…well, Mom named him Andy and he’s just super gay. One of my best friends who happens to be gay says this cat isn’t just gay, he’s Super gay. You really just have to meet Andy to understand. I keep thinking I should make a video but I don’t know that it will truly capture his fabulousness. If Andy was a Broadway show he would be Hugh Jackman doing Peter Allen in The Boy From Oz…but better than either of them – and in heels.

    LOVE the chandeliers. You seem to have a fatal chandelier attraction, but you bring out the best in them! As for your feet – has your family never heard of a thing we call shoes? Protective footwear? LOL.

  5. jeanmartha Says:

    Shoes? WTF!?!? Oh wait, you forget….we’re New England wasps. As soon as Memorial Weekend hits, we toss our shoes in a closet and only (and with much annoyance) put them back on to go to…well….actually….I can’t think of a good place to wear shoes when it’s warm out…except Andy….he loves shoes…specially with sequins…

    If I had a dollar for everytime the Fiance looks at me and proclaims “WHERE ARE YOUR SHOES?” I’d be able to pay for the 13 gallons of paint the niece purchased.

    It’s so wonderful to see that someone else doesn’t look “pristine” when they’re working. I’m laying that tile in the basement and imagine my surprise when I went out to dinner and globs of thinset were still falling out of my hair. How did I get in in my hair??? Who knows.

    Do you think that Martha looks perfect at the end of a painting session. Oh, I forgot, she has minions to do that work. I can only dream of having minions.

    You’re doing a great job. Come over here when you’re done.

    Oh and that widget over there >>>>
    Say’s I haven’t been here in 3 months….
    It lies….I say.

  10. jeanmartha Says:

    Jenni – I just removed that widget, didn’t seem to be working (the joys of WordPress.) It was also not pointing where it was supposed to. I don’t know why most of my widgets end up pointing to “delightful blogs” it’s really annoying. Even when I close them with > it seems to seep over to Delightful Blogs.

    Jean,
    I love those fixtures! I really love the yellow. I’ve come over here at least four times to look at it.

  12. jeanmartha Says:

    The paint is Buttermilk Biscuit from Martha’s Stewart’s line at Lowes. The color is awesome – the paint itself sux! Two coats up (four in some sections, I was up till 3AM) and you can still see the sky blue (previous color) through it. Primer. What’s that?

  13. jeanmartha Says:

    Duh…the walls are Buttermilk Biscuit. Not sure what color spray paint I used on the chandelier. Mom went to the hardware store and I requested something that was yellow but more “butter” than sun. LOL
