Paint and more tile work
Yesterday and today, paint went up in the main living areas: LR, DR, entry were painted an initial coat of "rodeo tan." Decision made to also paint the inside of the cut out between the kitchen dining area and living room, this same color.
Running out of paint, I picked up 2 more gallons, here is the completed living room (except for cut out)
The hallway all the way down and around was also done for uniformity.
Dining room. Looks dark due to the sun setting.
Here's what I encountered this afternoon, when I went over to lock up. Not sure about this "bold" green. It was much softer on the paint card. It is wet and the dot of paint on the lid IS softer. Will have to see what it looks like in the morning. The adjacent laundry/half bath is supposed to be a bright, fun Kelly green. I checked, they did use the correct paint color.
A shot near the stove.
Hall bath tile was grouted yesterday
as was the Master shower floor pan.
This afternoon, I came home to the start of the tile job for the bench and walls. Don't like that he used the floor tile on the bench, I was expecting subway. DX sugggests a solid piece of Corian. I will have to speak to the contractor.
