Our house has finally been repainted. It looks lovely. It was a lot of lost productivity, but it couldn’t be helped and the final result is great. Also our GC gave us an inconvenience discount.
One of the big parts of the renovation for us was getting a new mural in the dining room. The previous mural depicted a weird semi-Italian landscape and looked a little bit like something you would find at Olive Garden. Over the years it became grimy, the colors dulled, and trying to clean it quickly proved futile because the paint would come off with the dirt.
At first, we were going to do something neutral because the plan was to sell the house, But in the end we ended up going for something personal. Something we liked. If we do end up selling, the new owners might keep it or not, but we love it. It’s weird and it’s us.
It is strange and slightly magic, and the more you stand in front of it, the more things you see.
Huge thanks to Michelle for the amazing piece of art.
