With the best help, got the whole kitchen painted last weekend (even the so-dirty-it-was-almost-black-ceiling). And then, partially because Kelly insists her carpeted trinity-stairs are less slippery, I bit the bullet, ventured into the FLOR world, and carpeted the stairs.
1. The wall color is not exactly as pictured, but is in that family. Not at all the pale butter yellow expected. (Some kind of lesson about not judging the "Oops paint" by it's label.)
I know all the colors don't really "go" together, and it's weird, but it's growing on me. I just want Josh to like it.
2. Cutting FLOR tiles: Everyone (including the website, and real people, and the guy at the hardware store) tells you to get/use fresh blades all the time. They're right. Also worth noting: this is no job for an X-acto.
