This month, we have quite a few guests. My parents just came for July Fourth weekend. Jona and Alix are dropping by this weekend and Tig’s parents are visiting next weekend. Elvis was planning on staying with us at the end of July (no, not that Elvis) while attending a conference in Boston. No one seems to mind the disasterous state of our home. We weren’t able to finish the guest room in time for my parents, but I’ve been hauling butt trying to get it ready for Jona and Alix.

I originally chose Prescott Green from Benjamin Moore, but had a case of buyer’s remorse right afterward. The local hardware store helped me by adding white pigment to the paint for free. After testing it, I still thought it was too dark, so I spent Monday afternoon mixing it with white paint to push it toward Hollingsworth Green. Below is a piece of drywall I tested on. Like I said, I’ve got issues with color.

Tig and I had already primed the room and painted the ceiling. July 4th was spent painting the walls green. I even painted the inside of the closet - it looks so good with the original wood trim (previous owners painted most trim white).

Tig spent yesterday and today (Wed & Thurs) painting the trim Icing from Devine Paint. We should be ready for Jona when she arrives tomorrow afternoon! Sorry, no final picture has been taken yet.
