For my two regular readers of my blog, you’ll notice that I had a writing lapse here. The rest of you didn’t even notice I was gone. Sometimes life just happens that pulls you in other directions and something has to give. Alas…this time it was writing.
One of the things that threw me off kilter was a major leak in our master bathroom. Lovely…the unexpected remodel. True to form, I decided, hey, if we are gutting our master bath, let’s redo the master bedroom at the same time. Without a thought, I hopped on down to Sherwin Williams for inspiration and to pick my new improved paint colors for our bedroom. Excitedly, I shared with my husband that our bedroom would now be purple and green. Eyes rolled and masculinity was challenged. Apparently, real men don’t have purple walls in their bedrooms. Undaunted by his lack of enthusiasm for my improvement, I forged ahead. “He’ll come around,” I told myself.
Carpet ripped up, hardwoods installed. Check.
New windows and craftsman style window trim. Check.
Crown moulding and larger baseboard. Check.
Purple accent wall painted. Check.
“Why do we have to have a purple wall, again?” questioned my exasperated husband.
“Because it will look awesome when it is all put together. If you really, really, really (yes that many reallys…) hate it, I’ll paint over it with the green. “
After having our furniture in our living room for a couple of weeks, we get to move back into our bedroom. The best part? I think my husband is starting to like the purple wall in our room. Well…maybe like is too strong a word, but his eyes aren’t rolling in the back of his head anymore. So far, no requests to paint over the purple and when the furniture was in there he actually said he liked how it looked.
Sweet. Real men can handle purple bedrooms to make their spouses happy.
The hardwood floors were done by Restoration Creek, the trim work by Lance Hamberger, and painting by Brian Gaskin (the ceiling looks wonky in the photos but it isn’t like that in real life…looks normal). I was pleased with all of their work if any of you need contractors like that I’d recommend them.
