Lake Tahoe Restoration Update October 5, 2014
Ever feel over your head? I sure do! There seem to be thousands of choices, as we remodel this place. I want it all done yesterday, which can sometimes be a problem!
I really like the new paint color. We’ll end up with a brick red front door, that should look pretty sharp. That will probably have to wait until warm weather returns, since the door will have to come off.
Now, we’re going to install reclaimed oak everywhere, except bathrooms, with flagstone laid at the entry points. The old wood should hopefully be very user friendly. Nicks and dings will hopefully add character!
All of this takes us to interior paint colors. Oh dear! I chose one color, last weekend. Bob (aka Mr. Wonderful) got a gallon and put it on one wall in the “apartment”.
Then of course, Laurie told me that the paneling would fight the wood floor, so now we’re going to paint it. Instead of getting a gallon of one color, I’m getting EIGHT OR NINE little sample jars. I’m going to put them on poster boards and play around with them, until I either jump off the deep end, or find the right color combo.
The designer did like how I ‘washed’ the oak bannister and railing in one of our chalk based grey’s.
