Some painting

This is what we started with on Saturday morning! When Dynamo came back from Home Depot with this pile of metal I couldn't help but ask, "Did they give you instructions with that?" His reply was "nope!" So, thank goodness for Google because at least we could see a picture of the scaffolding all put together. Dynamo is so smart. He can do anything! I mean...anything!

So, from this pile of metal...
He made this...

Painting our great room was this year's winter project.
Dynamo taped all of the downstairs and the upstairs loft area before beginning to paint everything. He worked all day Saturday and Sunday on the job!

When he finished (most of it anyways), here was the result...


I apologize for the quality of the pictures. They were taken with my camera phone!

We LOVE the new color. The room was a goldish yellow before, but now it's just a rich fantastic yellow!! We used Aura paint from Benjamin Moore. It performed very well. The color we chose was Beverly Hills #180. It's an awesome color. I'll put better pics up from my real camera soon so you can really tell how fabulous the color is.

I'm so glad that we repainted! It needed a new coat. The builder's painters never do as good as Dynamo can! He worked so hard. It is just beautiful! Thank you, Dynamo, for making our house so beautiful!

So much work! I'm sure it gives you a great feeling when you walk in the room! (You couldn't get me up there for a million bucks!)
