I am a color person, and our house was designed to accommodate it in a variety of ways. What I’ve been told, however, is that when people are looking to buy a house they want to see a blank slate which means that we are not only decluttering but painting. I had sworn not to paint, but if neutral walls help sell, so be it.
Painting is no easy job as some spaces in the house have a ceiling height of 28′. What that means is that everything has to be moved out so scaffolding can be erected.
With all this in place, there is every indication that dramatic changes are going to happen.
As the first swipes of paint go on, I’m already feeling this is not my house, and that makes me sad in a way I cannot describe. This is a home we dreamed for years before we were able to build, and giving it up is like taking a piece of my soul.
If there has been a positive it’s the men who are doing the work. They are cheerful the whole day long and never stop except for a lunch break when they heat food in their microwave. The good smells make me want to share!
When all is said and done, there will be a clean and fresh new look. What will be really funny is if someone else comes in and changes the color in which case I’ll hardily recommend the painters!
