Thanks, Michelle, we're thrilled with the way the renovation is progressing!
My kitchen backsplash is a subway style, white with just a hint of grey shading around the outside. I think it's going to give it some depth ~ at least in my 'mind's eye' it will ~ and I think I'm going to have him use a taupe-y grout to help tie it into the quartz and oak cabinets. Yet to be determined, however.
Dane's going to start the painting tomorrow. He has the master bath, bedroom & closet ready to go ~ went as far as washing down the walls in the bathroom today while I was gone with Lyn (we had a 'Get-Outta-Dodge' day). He swears he's looking forward to doing all the painting. He went to the paint store today and picked up $800 of paint. I sure hope that's enough!
I asked him if he wanted a Wagner Power Roller like he used on the whole house paint job he did in Ohio and he at first said, "No, I don't think I'll need it." But after he thought about all the ceilings he has to prime and then paint, as well as the walls, he changed his mind. It's not an expensive tool but it does make the job go way quicker. The paint is pumped into the roller and he doesn't have to stop to 're-load'. We had to drive half an hour to Apopka to a Home Depot that had one in stock so he could have it for tomorrow but he didn't mind at all.
I'll post pics as the job progresses.....
