It took a while, but Favorite Young Man finished painting some rooms in my house. They looked pretty bad. The final two to receive the FYM treatment were the master bath and the office.
Here's Favorite Young Man at work in the bathroom:
|This is my favorite photo of him.
As you can see, the bathroom ceiling was white. I can't find a "before" photo of the walls, but I described the color as pale piss.
Here's the finished bathroom:
|We started with a lighter color on the walls and decided
darker would be better.
The walls in the office were the worst in the house. I forgot to photograph them, but I wouldn't even describe the color as pale piss. They were a colorless color. One wall looked as if someone had thrown a drink on it. And no, I did not throw a drink on the wall so just wipe that idea out of your heads this minute.
Why? Because I'm the mom, and I say so.
Favorite Young Man selected the color for the office. I love it!
|Faith was a Mother's Day gift from Middle Child.
MOM (I'm sorry it has a glare on it) was a
Mother's Day gift from blog child.
They didn't plan it, but don't the two pieces look
|Thank God he doesn't watch NFL games, too.
Here's my favorite artwork in the room. It's on the wall to the right of the chair where I sit when I'm working. I can look up to see it any time I like. It was painted by my beloved Jenny Matlock, who blogs at Jenny Matlock. I wonder how she came up with that title for her blog. Anypainting, it's the first stanza of a poem I wrote for Willy Dunne Wooters. Jenny painted it on two boards so the two are individuals, but they're together.
Two lovers in love
laughed at the sea,
laughed as the waves
splashed the shore.
The water was cold
and it tickled their toes
and they laughed
and sang la la la laa.
Thank you, Jenny. I love you dearly.

That's all the painting for now. Favorite Young Man does a great job. Thank you, FYM.
Infinities of love,
