Is 16 Years a Long Time?

We’ve been in our house almost 16 years. Still have not painted the master bedroom, one bathroom, living room, and dining room. Builder’s white…I loathe you.

The rest of the house has been painted. In fact all three children’s bedrooms have been painted 2 or 3 times!

My teen’s bedroom has gone from Winnie the Pooh to Princess to Tie Dye.

My preteen’s bedroom has changed from Winnie the Pooh to Marie the Cat from the Aristocats to purple with wall stickers.

The Kid and His New RoomMy kid’s room was Winnie the Pooh and is now white with red trim featuring Fatheads from Maryland Terps and the Washington Redskins with a few Manchester United stickers thrown in to recognize our English heritage.

I have had 2 cans of blue paint outside my bathroom door for over a year…waiting for a time when I will have time to paint.

The master bedroom is in need of painting too. Don’t get me started on the hallway and landing with all the scratch marks from baby gates. There are also a hug number of scuffs from kids’ feet while in time out. Who decided to use the bottom of the stairs as the time out spot, anyway??

Stay tunes to see if I paint this summer…or not…

    We finally got some of our rooms painted this past fall. We bought our house from my in-laws, so it’s the house Tom grew up in. His standard response was “we painted that room when I was a kid, it doesn’t need to be painted again.” Umm.. hon, 1988 was MORE THAN 20 YEARS AGO!!

    Most of the downstairs is done now, except the kitchen which is a greasy, off-color disaster. Only 1 of the 3 bedrooms upstairs has been painted in the last two decades; my son’s old room (which is now the au pair’s room), was done in ’03 or ’04. At least other people don’t see the upstairs 🙂
