Will work for cute clothes.
Lady who owns this house has a really nice boutique
and part of my payment was a cute jacket, boho flouncy skirt and some green and black tiger striped reading glasses. Before and after of the foyer & master bedroom. I did ceilings, walls and all the trim so I was in there a whole week.
Also in the last few weeks:
Twins' nursery in Fenton. (SW Humble Gold.)
One ceiling in Grand Blanc. (White.)
Kitchen & dining room in New Lathrop. (SW Vanillin.)
Foyer, living, dining room & kitchen in Grand Blanc. (Can't remember.)
And have done quite a few estimates, I'm boooked into June now. :)
Next up - RED kitchen and big-ass living/family room/foyer, color TBD, in Linden. (Lauren, I'll wave.)
The teenager, Pedro, Julio and the small yellow car.
Carina & Erica at the Pleasant Grove cemetary. There are people buried there who were born in the 1700s. It's cool.
The Teenager and the Small Yellow Car.
Pablo, a chip off the old block.
Pablo, my new rock Julio, and rabbit ears. (Happy Bunny Day.)
Erica and Julio share a Moment.
Pablo posing on the bumper of the Small Yellow Car.
Pedro Contemplates the Michigan Prairie.
New Lothrop, Michigan. Spring snow and farmland.
Pedro's guardian has been extremely
busy painting all sorts of neat stuff, training dogs, playing and generally not paying attention to her computer.
Pedro's guardian has been working way too many damn hours and is going to go take a shower and go to bed and then drive to Ohio tomorrow in a small yellow car with a teenager.
March 16, and oops.
Oops. I thought I had better after photos but I just got a couple of so-so ones.
Oh well. The walls look way better, nice sunny color compared to the blah white.
I made up the yellow because we were having a hard time getting just the right one, and painted the front door bright red.
The homeowner is Stephanie Edward's
(the American Idol contestant voted off last week) aunt. Just lovely people and she has all this really cool, retro furniture and chinoiserie decor going on.
Doing up her kitchen in a couple of weeks, we'll do something pretty wild!

The big-ass room.
Damn. I look fat in that photo.
The tape is for faux, not for regular painting. I don't use tape to get straight lines....no good painter worth their salt does. :)
In order to build scaffolding you need a penis and testicles.
I have a job this week which will require putting up three tiers of rolling tower scaffolding.
I used to have some, don't any more because I so very rarely need to use it. Dead easy to put together, one person can do it.
Well, the homeowner is so clearly uncomfortable with the idea that someone with ovaries instead of testicles might attempt to erect (ha!ha! She said "erect.") this thing inside her home that I am hiring someone with a penis to come help on Monday morning.
Sigh. Never mind that I am stronger than most men who don't do manual labor for a living, and never mind that I have owned and put up scaffolding on numerous occasions all by my little chickie self.
But having a penis around will help the job feng shui or some damn thing.
