We got the spraying done and then had to get out for the flooring guys to come in. Can you believe they whined when they got 11 days to lay the flooring? Sissies!
The problem is that without adequate lighting and lots of paint fumes, we were unable to be completely consistent on 2/3 rds of the building. And... there was a lot of damage to walls by the contractors (flooring, electrical, plumbing and air conditioning) which created a lot of fixes and touch up. With the paint tones, a simple touch up would not work. We had to roll the entire wall.
So yesterday we decided to just get it finished. At one point we were tired and wanted to hang it up to be home early, but stuck it out. What a huge relief to have that part finished.
I am proud of what we did together. It was daunting, but the dollar signs were dazzling. A lot of motivation to do it. We/I learned a lot about painting large spaces. How else do you learn besides doing. Most people apprentice with a painter, we jump in, take a contract and work our tails off to make it right.
We also have gotten to do the decorating and that part has been a blast. Takes way more time than painting, but it lets my creative side come out and see the sun for a bit.
The picture above is the hallway the patients take to the check out desk. We wanted them to know they were appreciated. It turned out classy. I love vinyl. I was asked why would I want a mirror on the wall as they leave the dentist' chair.
There is nothing worse than walking around with chalky stuff on your lips and you don't know it. This way you can check as you leave.
Thanks Laurie for being a hard worker. I couldn't/wouldn't have done it without you .
