What's going on at the Bakers you ask?
Well we (as in me and Ollie) are painting...yes...AGAIN! My philosophy since we moved into this house a year ago was to tackle the ugliest room and move on from there. Back at the beginning of this year, the ugliest room in my house was a little extra room right off the front entry of the house. This house was originally built in the 1930's by an Indiana Senator and this little room was his office. It really doesn't work for much else and I don't think it had been touched since the beginning of time. I don't have before picks but it had ugly 80's wallpaper and matching...YES I SAID MATCHING...ugly valance. They had painted all the trim in the house at one time green and this room still remained in this room. Needless to say many hours of work later and I got it whipped into shape.
Now this little room is turning into a sewing room and I'm so excited! Okay okay back on subject. While getting ready to paint this room I searched my little tail off for the PERFECT grey and this is it. It is from Olympic and it is called Antique Silver and it is absolutely the perfect color of grey. Well it only took 1/2 a gallon so the other half has been burning a hole in my pocket as they say. I loved the color so much that I decided to paint the largest public space in my house that color so I could enjoy it everyday and everyone else could too...that area....is my hallway.
I knew I wasn't going to be able to finish and to be honest, this hallway goes all the way up the stairs and all through the upstairs and I will get to it all eventually, but you have to start somewhere.
